How to manage Course Equivalencies?

You, as an Admin, can now define the courses that are equivalent to each other. By using this feature, your academy members will be able to automatically complete all of the courses that are equivalent to the ones they have actually completed.
As as example, if Course A is marked as an equivalent to Course B & Course C, the user that will complete the Course A, will be marked as having completed Course B and Course C as well.
 
Please note: In this example, if you have defined that the equivalency is bidirectional and once a user completes the Course B, only Course A will be automatically marked as completed,

To set up your equivalencies, go to the Online Training tab of your administration panel and click on the Course Equivalent option.

Select the desired course and then click on the relevant checkbox for each of the equivalents.

Please note that you have option to select if the equivalency should be bidirectional or not. As an example:

Case 1: Course A is equivalent to Course B and the "bidirectional" checkbox is selected:

  • the user who will complete Course A (1st column of the screenshot above) will be automatically assigned to Course B  and the course will be marked as completed due to the equivalency.
  • the user who will complete Course B (2nd column of the screenshot above) will be automatically assigned to Course A  and the course will be marked as completed due to the equivalency.

Case 2: Course A is equivalent to Course B and the "bidirectional" checkbox is unchecked:

  • the user who will complete Course A (1st column of the screenshot above) will NOT be automatically assigned to Course B. Course B will remain unaffected.
  • the user who will complete Course B (2nd column of the screenshot above) will be automatically assigned to Course A  and the course will be marked as completed due to the equivalency.

Once you Save your selection. the equivalent courses will be shown on the About page of the course and a new tab will be added as well, where the user will be able to see which courses are equivalent to the one that he/she takes. 

Please note:

  • You can add up to 10 equivalent courses per course
  • On course completion, all of the equivalent courses are marked as "completed via equivalent course" at the employees' dashboard.
  • This functionality doesn't work retroactively. In case that a user had completed a course prior to setting up your equivalencies, the equivalent courses will not be marked as completed for him/her.
  • If you want to run a report in order to check the equivalency relationships that have been set up for your academy courses, try to export the "Courses Equivalent Report" using the Report Builder feature! (Read also: How to use the Report Builder?)
