Manage Equivalent Courses

Administrators can define the courses that are equivalent to each other; that is, if a member completes Course A, they have also completed the equivalent Course B. 
Navigation: AdminOnline TrainingEquivalent Courses
  1. Select the course primary course in the first column.
  2. Select the equivalent course(s) in the second column.
  3. Select the checkbox(es) for how each equivalency should be handled. There are four options.
    • One-way equivalency: Completing Course A will give learners a completion for Course B, either immediately if already enrolled in Course B, or at the time of their enrollment if not yet enrolled.
    • Two-way equivalency: Completing one course will automatically mark the other course as completed. If the learner is already enrolled in both courses, the equivalency will happen immediately. Otherwise, the equivalency will occur at the time the learner enrolls in the second course.
    • Automatically assign and complete: When learners finish one course, the system will automatically assign and mark the other course as complete for them.
    • Apply retroactively: If learners finish a course before the equivalencies are set up, we'll go back and mark the equivalent course as completed for them.
  4. Save your selection. The equivalent courses will be shown on the About page of the course under the Equivalents tab.


  • You can add up to 10 equivalent courses per course.
  • Purchased courses cannot be used as equivalent courses.
  • On course completion, all of the equivalent courses are marked as "completed as equivalent" on the employees' dashboard, even if the course is completed "By Admin."
  • This function does not work retroactively. If a user completed a course prior to setting up the equivalencies, the equivalent courses will not be marked as completed.
  • No certificates are awarded for courses that have been marked as "completed as equivalent."
  • To run a report to check the equivalency relationships that have been set up for your academy courses, export the "Courses Equivalent Report" using the Report Builder (Admin (hover) > ReportingReport Builder > Create New Report).
