Retake of courses and training plans

Introduction

The Voluntary Retake option allows learners to retake training to repeat the material of a course, improve their score, and/or update certificates and competencies that are to expire.

This guide provides information about the retake option, how admins can initialize a retake for a course and training plan, and how learners can retake training when the Voluntary Retake option is enabled. 

 

 

NOTE: When users retake a course their progress is reset, and their course status is set to 'Not Started'. This also means that their progress with all learning items of the course is reset and this will be reflected in the course catalog reports.

Users can review the content of courses they are enrolled in at any time, even if the retake option is not enabled.
