Learning Details (Legacy) - Details - Certifications

The Details tab for certifications is separated into two sections. The general information about the certification displays in the upper half of the page, and the certification periods display in separate boxes in the lower half of the page.

Actions

Depending on the accessing user's permissions and availability, the following action buttons may be available on the Learning Details page for the certification:

  • Assign - If the certification is available to the user and the user is able to assign training to users, the Assign button displays. The user can click the Assign button to begin assigning the certification to available direct reports. When a manager with the permission for assigning certifications accesses the Training Details page for a certification, they will only see an Assign button if they are included in the availability settings for the certification. If the manager is not included in the certification's availability, they cannot assign the certification to users.
  • Request - If the certification is available to the user accessing the Training Details page for the certification and the certification is not already on the user's transcript, the Request button displays. The user can click the Request button to request the certification.
  • Manage - Users who have the certification on their transcript have access to a Manage button on the Training Details page for the certification. Clicking the Manage button navigates the user to the certification transcript, where the user can access the training contained within the certification.

Note: The titles of the certification periods are defined by the administrator on the Scheduling tab when configuring the certification.

Certification Periods

Each certification period displays in a separate box. The following information displays for each period:

  • Period - This displays the certification period.
  • Due - This displays when the certification is due.
    • Relative Due Date - For certifications with a relative due date defined, the Due field displays the time frame from the start date (i.e., "2 days from start date," or "1 year from start date").

  • Duration - This displays for renewal periods and shows the duration of the renewal period.

  • Requirements - This column displays the sections for the certification and lists the learning items defined for each section.
    • If the certification is configured to override the Course Catalog learning availability settings, then all learning items display for the user regardless of whether or not the user meets the availability criteria for the learning items.
    • If the certification is not configured to override the Course Catalog learning item availability settings, then the only learning items that display are the items for which the user meets the availability criteria.
  • Credits - This column displays credits information for the certification. If the certification is configured not to override learning item availability, then the number of credits is dependent upon the availability of the learning items in the certification.
    • Min/Max - This displays the minimum and maximum number of credits to be completed for a section.
    • Number of Credits - The number of credits defined for a learning item displays in the Credits column for each item.

Availability

The Training Details page for certifications respects the availability settings of the certification. The following scenarios result from this behavior:

  • If a user is not included in the availability configured for the certification, they will NOT see a Request button on the Training Details page for the certification and cannot request the certification.
  • If a user is not included in the availability configured for the certification, a notification stating that the certification is unavailable displays to the user when they access the Training Details page for the certification.
  • When a manager with the permission for assigning certifications accesses the Training Details page for a certification, they will only see an Assign button if they are included in the availability settings for the certification. If the manager is not included in the certification's availability, they cannot assign the certification to users.

Visibility of Learning Objects

The learning items that display on the Details tab are dependent upon the settings defined by the administrator for the certification.

  • If the certification is configured to override the Course Catalog learning item availability settings, then all items display for the user regardless of whether or not the user meets the availability criteria for the learning items.
  • If the certification is not configured to override the Course Catalog learning item availability settings, then the only learning items that display are the items for which the user meets the availability criteria.
