Schoox gives you the option to set Courses/ Curricula as prerequisites for other training material (Courses/ Curricula) in order to make sure that your employees will have the proper knowledge when they will try to complete their training.
You, as an Admin, have the option to set the prerequisites for a Course/ Curriculum. Once the prerequisites have been set, users will be required to complete them prior to the actual course/ curriculum that they want to take.
Add Prerequisites to a Course
Simply select Training > Courses from the upper navigation menu and click on the Manage Course field of your Course. Click on the Edit Course tab of your Course Panel and select Prerequisites. Select the Courses and/or the Curricula that you want to add as prerequisites and click on the Submit button at the bottom of the page. The Prerequisites will be shown on the About page of the course. When the user will try to take this course, the steps will be greyed out until the prerequisites are completed.
If the course has multiple prerequisites, the user will have to click on the arrow icon in order to see all of them:

They can also specify the order that prerequisites are displayed on the course/curriculum card.
