Program management allows you to create a program that includes one course that learners need to repeat at regular intervals.
When a program is set up with a recurring course a new course occurrence is set up at the required interval e.g. yearly. The previous course is renamed to include the recurrence date and hidden to ensure learners are not able to access the old course.
To create the new course Totara automatically completes a backup and restore of the existing course. Any changes made to the existing course are backed up and restored to the new occurrence of the course.
The learners assigned to the programme are automatically enrolled in the new occurrence of the course.
Once you have created a new program (see Managing Programs for more information) you can add a recurring course under the Content tab.
Select the course from the course list and click Ok.
You can only select one course. It is recommended that you use Certifications for further information.if you wish to add more than one course to a program and require additional flexibility. See
The Totara Academy has a whole course dedicated to using Programs and certifications in Totara Learn. Here you can learn more on how to use programs and certifications, see best practice, and give it a go yourself.
