Curriculum Completion Date Logic

The general rule for curriculum completion date logic is that the date of curriculum completion will be the date the user completed the last child training item within the curriculum.

Additional considerations apply to certain training types and specific system scenarios:

Last Completed Child Training Item is an Event

If an event is the last child training item to be completed in a curriculum and it triggers a completion for the parent curriculum, the curriculum completion date will be the same as the event's completion date. The event completion date is determined by the session completion date, which observes the Default Session Completion Date setting defined in ILT Preferences.

Express Class, Training Update Tool, On the Job Training (OJT) Material, Edge Import

When the completion of the last child training item in a curriculum is triggered by one of these tools, the curriculum completion date will reflect the date of the most recently completed child training item within the curriculum.

Considerations for Completion Tool Completions:

  • Q: What if the curriculum was already in a Completed status at the time the Express Class was executed?
    • A: If all of the curriculum's minimum completion requirements have been met, the completion date of the curriculum will not be altered by a child training being marked complete.
  • Q: What happens if the tool defines the completion date of a child training as a date prior to the curriculum's assignment date?
    • A: The child training will be marked complete using the date specified. The curriculum completion date will reflect the latest completion date amongst other child training items required to complete the curriculum.
  • Q: What happens if all child training items have completion dates prior to the curriculum assignment date?
    • A: The curriculum completion date will still be the date of the most recently completed child training item within the curriculum, even if the completion date is prior to the assignment date.

Training Equivalencies

When the last training item to trigger completion of a parent curriculum is marked complete through a retroactive training equivalency, the curriculum completion date will reflect the date of the most recently completed child training item within the curriculum. Training Equivalencies that are not applied retroactively are not impacted.

Child Training Versioned with Versions Equivalent Option

When a child training item is versioned using the Versions Equivalent option and a new curriculum version is triggered and assigned to a user, the new curriculum version's completion date will be the date of the most recently completed child training item within the curriculum.

Considerations

The following considerations apply:

  • If a curriculum is marked complete by a training equivalency or a language equivalency, the curriculum completion date will always match its equivalent training completion date. Child training completion dates are not considered in this scenario.
  • If all the child training items in a curriculum are already completed, and the curriculum is assigned via the Learning Assignment Tool without the Assign New Occurrence option enabled, the curriculum completion date will be the date of the most recently completed child training item within the curriculum.
  • If training items were assigned to a user via a curriculum (Curriculum A) and the same training items are assigned to the user via another curriculum (Curriculum B) with the Assign New Occurrence option on and the Maintain Progress option off, the user's progress for the training items from the first curriculum (Curriculum A) is not maintained.
