What is the purpose of the block icon associated with the course listing?  The block icon indicates the level of the course.  Foundational level courses cover the basics and fundamentals of a topic and are indicated by one block.  Intermediate courses go beyond the basics and begin deep dives into the subject matter and are indicated by two blocks.  Advanced courses assume the learner has a solid understanding of all fundamental subject matter as they explore deep into topics and address issues facing experienced employees.  These courses are represented by three blocks.

How do I access past webinars?  If you missed a recent webinar and would like to view it through the eLearning center, you must register for the session first, in order to access the recording.  After you complete the registration, go to Dashboard in the menu, select the webinar and click View Archived Recording.   

Where can I find the student materials and/or handouts for the courses I select?  There are two places you can find handouts - on the tab marked Handouts in the course or once you launch the course, there is a download icon.  Not all courses have handouts and when handouts are included they will be either on the Handout tab or accessible once the course is launched, but not both.
