User Tips & Recent Changes to Ability

Course Review vs. Launch buttons

If you need to renew training, use the "Launch" button. Both buttons will launch the same course content. The review button is intended for users want to review a specific slide or section within previously completed course content, without having to re-register and complete the entire course. Users completing courses via the "Review" button will not get credit.
