Mark Exempt

Marking a user exempt from a learning object (LO) means the user is exempted from taking the training. There are a variety of reasons why a user may be marked exempt, such as the user previously completed an equivalent training or will be on leave on the training due date. Users can only be marked exempt for LOs that are not in a Completed or Completed Equivalent status, including sessions.

Note: For events, the Mark Exempt link displays on the Training Details page of the event.

Notes:

  1. LOs marked exempt from the Training Details page cannot be removed from the user's transcript, either in My Team or on the user's Transcript page for administrators and managers with permission to view or edit transcript items. The far right column on the Transcript page in My Team displays None for LOs with an exempt status. The Options column on the Transcript page displays N/A.
  2. Events and Sessions - If a user is exempted from a session, then the exemption propagates to the event. However, if a user is exempted from an event, the exemption only affects the event and leaves the sessions unaffected.
  3. Library - If a user is exempted from all child LOs in a library that has Completion enabled, then the library's status changes to Completed on the user's transcript. If a user is exempted from all child LOs in a library that has Completion disabled, then the library's status is unchanged.
  4. Curriculum - If a user is exempted from all child LOs in a curriculum in which all LOs are required, the curriculum's status changes to Completed on the user's transcript.
  5. Certifications - If a user is exempted from an LO within a certification, credit is awarded to the user. The user can only re-request the certification after the user is exempted and only if they do not receive credit for the LO.
