Course Catalog - Training Units

When editing a training item, the Training Units tab offers the following options regarding training units:

  • Allow users to check out with training units using the conversion rate that is determined by the monetary value - Select this option to allow users to purchase the course using training units, and the number of training units used is determined by converting the monetary value and the training unit conversion rate.
  • Disassociate pricing from monetary value - Select this option to allow you to set a training unit price for the course that is unrelated to any monetary value that may be set. You can specify a default training unit price and training unit prices based on OU. Training unit prices can be represented using up to two decimal places.
  • Do not allow payment by training unit for this item - This will not allow the course to be purchased using training units.

The Training Units tab is only available if training units are enabled.

Note: This tab is not available for program or video LOs.

Workflow Cases

The following workflow cases apply if users in an organization must purchase training items either monetarily or using training units:

Organization A: No monetary value is set for training units.

  • Admin must set a training unit price for each training item.
  • Training unit prices can be set by OU for each OU.

Organization B: A training unit is valued at $1 for entire company.

  • The price of training is converted using the monetary conversion rate.
  • If Course X is $10, it is also 10 training units.
    • Administrators can disassociate the training unit price of Course X from the monetary value if desired. For example, if the course should cost $10 or 12 training units, this could be done by selecting the "Disassociate pricing from monetary value" option and set the training unit price to 12. Users could then purchase the course for $10 or 12 training units.
