Offline Training Requests can be made by learners to express interest in attending a course not presently offered by the organisation or training department.
Learners are able to submit a request via a form to attend training and can attach information that is relevant to the training opportunity such as cost, location and reference documents.
The request is sent as an email to the the LMS administrators who are able to review and authorise the request. In most instances, if approved the course will be added to ScaffoldLMS directly and the appropriate Enrolment Method enabled.
To have access to this work flow the block must be added to the front page.
Any time a nomination has been made, any user with a site role that allows them to approve training will be notified via email.
