We recommend checking the module settings before starting the first program.

To create a brand new program in the Training module (Learn Central):

  1. Click Learn Central or Training (module may be renamed by your company) on the side menu, then click Programs.
    Note: the Programs button will only display if you have the "Can Manage Training" permission in your Role settings.

  2. Click "Create Program"

  3. Enter the Title

  4. Enter a program description (This is optional. It could be: what does the program include, what will the learner have achieved by the end, etc)

  5. Add a thumbnail (recommended size 500 by 500px or 800 by 800px, but any square image will work fine. If the image is not square, it will be automatically cropped/stretched to fit.)

  6. Select any pre-requisite programs (other program(s) that must be completed before this one can be started. The other program(s) must have the "Program Completion" toggle enabled to be selected as a pre-requisite.)

  7. Choose whether you want this program to have a "Completion" via the Enable Program Completions toggle. (If this toggle is turned on, once users complete all activities in the program they will receive a certificate of completion. If the toggle is off, the program is considered a continuously evolving program with content being updated/added regularly, therefore no completion certificate is given and the program can be added to at any time.)

  8. If Program Completions is turned on, you can change the Certificate Type from Default to Custom.
    Custom allows you to add your own header and footer images to the certificate.
    Default will use the logo that you have in the Branding page.
  9. If Program Completions is turned on, you can change the default completion page message and set a completion page video if desired.

  10. Click the Activities tab to start adding your activities (e-learning and assessments)

  11. Once all activities have been added, click the Permissions tab

  12. Set permissions accordingly, then click the Emails tab.

  13. Op Central provides generic default email templates, but we recommend you edit these to keep "on brand" with your business.

  14. Click Preview to check that the program displays and flows the way you would like. You can make edits to the program afterwards, but depending on the Completion settings, users may not have to re-do activities if you change them in the future.

  15. Click Publish when ready. Any roles marked as Mandatory (on the permission tab) will be notified if you select the "Notify Users" option on the pop-up.
