Search Training

To search for training in the Cornerstone Learn app:

You can also press the Enter key without entering search terms, which navigates you to the Learning Search page with all available results displayed. A maximum of 50 search results can be returned.
  2. Peruse the results which display on the Learning Search page and use the available filters to receive more specific training results, if necessary. Search results are sorted by relevance, and text queries are matched with content title, descriptions, and keywords.

Each training result displays with a thumbnail image, the training type, the title of the training, and the duration, if applicable. If the training is on the user's transcript, the status of the training item displays under the training title. Tap a training result to access the Training Details page for the training.

If the training is already on the user's transcript, and the training is an online course, material, or video, a play icon displays over the training's thumbnail image, and tapping the training thumbnail image launches the training.
