Before Creating a Learning Assignment

Before assigning training, determine if the training has a fee associated with it and/or a pre-requisite that must be completed before the training can be assigned.

As of Oct 2023, only 6 training titles have fees associated with them and they are listed in the Appendix 3 on page 41.  However, given this can change over time, to determine if a training has a fee,

  • Search for it in the catalog by clicking the magnifying glass (1) in the upper right corner of the SLU home page

  • Type the title of the training in the Search Spillett Leadership University box (2) and press the Enter/Return key on your keyboard to execute the search

  • If it returns a result with a 

  • Training Price (3), the CEO or Org Admin needs to pay for the training before it is assigned.  

  • For more information, please see the Org Admin Guide 

  •  and refer to the section “Bulk Participation Enrollment of Fee Base Instructor-Led (ILT) Training Sessions” and then follow instructions on how to purchase and assign seats.

To determine if a training has a pre-requisite,

  • Click the title of the training in the search results

If a training title has Prerequisites it will be listed as shown below.

If a training title (for example Athlete Protection, Part 2), has a prerequisite (for example Athlete Protection, Part 1)  that has not been completed, even if a learning assignment is created to assign Part 2, it will not be assigned to users that have not completed Part 1.
