Adding an Optional Course in my Learning Path

Those who have permission to manage learning paths are able to set any course as optional.

Please Note: The learning path will be able to be marked as complete if the user does not take an optional course.

Select the Training Admin Workspace. Under Manage Training on the left, select Learning Paths.


Select the appropriate learning path from the list, and then its Courses button.

Uncheck the is needed for learning path completion checkbox under the appropriate course.

Learners will see that a course is optional when progressing through the learning path.


Please note:

  • If you did select 'is needed for learning path completion' the learner will not be able to complete the learning path until they take this course.
  • If the learner self-enrolled in the learning path / course this checkbox will always automatically default as optional.
  • Either way, all optional and mandatory courses will always be seen in the employee's dashboard.
