Existing Completions for Compliance Content

For detailed information about Compliance, see Recurring Assets (Compliance).

If a learner has already completed an asset that is now marked as a compliance asset, that learner can get compliance credit for the asset if both the First Accessed and Completed dates are within the asset's designated previous recurrence period (the effective assignment date to the recurrence period).

Example for Existing Completions for Compliance

The Leadership Basics course is a mandatory course for a certain group of learners (Leadership Candidates). You assign the Leadership Basics course on June 15, 2013 with a recurrence period of one year.

On August 1, 2013, you add two new learners to the Leadership Candidates group:

  • Joe has already taken the Leadership Basics course, and he accessed and completed it on June 25, 2013. Because he started and completed it within the last year (August 1, 2012 - August 1, 2013), he is not required to complete this asset in the initial period. Joe receives compliance credit.
  • Mike has also taken the Leadership Basics course, and he first accessed it on June 25, 2012. Mike completed the course on July 1, and because he did not complete it within the last year (August 1, 2012 - August 1, 2013), he is required to complete this asset in the initial period. Mike does not receive compliance credit until he has completed the asset within the initial period.

Recurring Compliance Courses

Credit is given for the initial assignment only. Compliance credit is not granted with prior completions for the next recurrence.

Example of Recurring Compliance Courses

All employees must successfully pass the Sexual Harassment Awareness course once per fiscal year to remain in compliance with an organization's internal goals. The Sexual Harassment Awareness course is open yearly from February 1 - January 31 of the following year (for example, Feb 1, 2013 - Jan 31, 2014).

A new hire, Paul, begins work on January 25. He takes the Sexual Harassment Awareness course on January 30. When the assignment reappears in his learning plan on February 1, he wants credit for already taking the course. He is not granted compliance credit, as it is a recurring course for company-wide yearly compliance.
