Self-paced learning is done through a course assignment. It gives the student direct access to labs without a class enrollment. When you create a course assignment, the student’s access begins immediately and defaults to expire in 6 months. The expiration can be changed; however, extending the date past 6 months will incur a second charge for the full amount of the lab. Charges for course assignments are determined the same as a class - click here course pricing information.
Students can access the course assignment from the Current Training page; this is the student’s landing page after logging in. They will click on the name of the course to open it and access their labs. After a course assignment has been completed, the assignment moves to the student’s Transcript page. A completed course assignment is accessed by clicking the My Transcript navigation button at the top of any page in the TMS and then clicking the course name. Students have the ability to launch a new instance of completed labs as long as the expiration date has not passed.
