Required vs Optional

Training instances can be assigned as required or optional. Both types of trainings will be visible to the end learner. But, in your reporting you will see a different output in your CSV to indicate if this training was optional or required. This is useful for you to separate data to bank sponsors (or similar) who only care about the required trainings.

Why optional trainings?

You may want some trainings to be optional because they:

  • are at a higher difficulty level and allow the learner to go above and beyond

  • they are for fun educational purposes, such as "What committees does our company have?"

  • they are useful to a learners domain, but not required for compliance reporting reasons


Requirements status can be set at a training instance level, but also overridden at a learner level.
