All Training Assignment tasks in your My Tasks view require an eSignature to indicate you have read and understand the material. Some Training Assignments, however, require additional actions such as passing a quiz or attending an instructor-led training session. You can access Vault Training assignments via the Learner homepage, your My Tasks view, or a link in a notification. Training assignments can be accessed in mobile device browsers, though if an assignment has a quiz, it will open in a non-mobile-optimized view. Users with delegate access cannot take quizzes for or complete Training Assignments on behalf of another user.

Accessing Training Assignments on a Mobile Device

You can access Training Assignments with a mobile interface using either a mobile device browser or the Vault Mobile app. When viewing an assignment with multiple documents in the mobile interface, tap Begin Training to start viewing documents or to resume where you left off. When viewing a document, you can tap Next to progress to the next document. Assignments that can be completed in the mobile interface display a Complete button, which becomes available once all requirements in the assignment have been met.

Training Assignments with a quiz open in a non-mobile-optimized view.

The mobile interface also includes the following functions:

Icon Function
exit Gives you a choice to either return to your Vault homepage in the desktop interface, or to log out of Vault.
close Returns you to the assignment description and document list.
info Displays document data such as the Name, Version, and Effective Date.

Mobile Limitations

The following are not supported for training assignments on mobile interfaces:

  • Completing quizzes

About E-Learning Training Materials

Note that for some e-learning content, the browser must have Flash enabled. E-learning courses may not be optimized for a mobile interface. Check with your Admin to ensure the e-learning material you are attempting to view is mobile-optimized.

Resetting E-Learning Course Progress

While completing training, you may find it necessary to reset your progress in an e-learning course. For example, you may have failed a quiz within the e-learning content more times than allowed. Contact your manager or Training Admin to reset progress.

Completing a Classroom Training Assignment

To complete an assignment with classroom training:

  1. Navigate to the Learner homepage or your My Tasks view.
  2. Click into a Classroom Training Assignment. If your assignment allows self-registration, the next page lists the available classes and details for each. Review the details, select a class, and click Register. If you click into the assignment after you are registered for a class, the task page appears, listing class details and class session schedules, along with any documents used as class materials.
  3. Optional: From the assignment card on the Learner homepage or while self-registering, click Add to Calendar to add the class to your Google or Outlook calendar. You can also use the Outlook calendar option for any calendar which uses the ICS format.
  4. If necessary, review the provided class materials.
  5. Attend the scheduled class. The instructor records your attendance for the session.
  6. If the class has an associated quiz, wait for the instructor to issue the quiz, then click Take Quiz. See detailed instructions about taking a quiz.

Some training may have multiple sessions. If the training has multiple sessions, repeat the above steps for each remaining session. Once you attend all sessions and complete any required quizzes, there is nothing left for you to do. When the class is complete, Vault automatically determines whether your Training Assignment record moves to a Completed state or a Did Not Complete state.

About Classroom Training Sessions

When your training assignment includes classroom training but there is not yet a session scheduled for the course, you may receive an email and notification when a session has been scheduled. Clicking the notification will take you to the classroom training assignment.

Vault also sends you an email and notification when an Instructor updates the session’s date or time. Depending on your Vault’s configuration, you can use the Add to Calendar link to add the class to your Google or Outlook calendar. You can also use the Outlook calendar option for any calendar which uses the ICS format.

Changing a Class Registration

If you have previously registered for a class and need to change your class selection or cancel the registration, you can do so from the assignment’s task page. Your available options differ depending on whether your class still allows self-registration at that time:

  • If your class allows changes to registration, you can click Manage Registration to return to the class selection page. Choose another class and click Register to switch your registration to that class, or click Cancel Registration to remove yourself from the roster for the current class.
  • If your class does not allow changes to registration, contact your Training Administrator.

Classroom Training on Mobile

When accessed in a mobile interface, Classroom Training Assignments display read-only course information and allow you to review class materials.

Completing an External Training Assignment

External training assignments involve activities that occur outside of Vault, such as a seminar or certification training held by a third-party organization. To complete an external training assignment:

  1. Navigate to the Learner homepage or your My Tasks view.
  2. Click into an External Training assignment. The task page appears, listing details for the training. Note whether you will need proof of completion, such as a certificate.
  3. Attend or otherwise perform the external training exercise, obtaining proof of completion if necessary.
  4. Return to the External Training assignment task page.
  5. If the training requires proof of completion, click Upload to attach a file with the necessary proof.
  6. Complete the fields in the Complete External Training dialog.
  7. Click Complete.

If the assignment requires proof of completion, another user may review the submitted proof and either approve or reject it. If that user rejects your proof, the external training assignment will reappear in your My Tasks view with any notes regarding the verdict. You can upload the corrected proof and complete the task following the steps above.

External Training on Mobile

When accessing an External Training assignment in a mobile interface, you can upload any necessary files to the assignment by tapping the Upload Proof button.

Completing an Evaluation Training Assignment

Evaluation training assignments typically involve training and an evaluation which occurs outside of Vault, and for which you will need to coordinate with a trainer, referenced here as an Evaluator. To complete an evaluation training assignment:

  1. Navigate to the Learner homepage or your My Tasks view.
  2. Click into an Evaluation Training assignment. The task page appears, presenting the learning objectives for the course and any additional information your Training Admin has chosen to provide. Often, Evaluation Training Assignments have prerequisites like safety information and SOPs, which you must complete prior to the evaluation training.
  3. Once ready for the evaluation, coordinate with your Evaluator or Training Admin to schedule a time outside of Vault.
  4. After performing the training, your Evaluator may have specific instructions for you.
  5. If you have passed the training, navigate to the assignment’s task page and click Complete.

If you did not pass the training or need to repeat it, coordinate with your Evaluator or Training Admin to determine the best next steps.

About Training Prerequisites

When attempting to access a Training Assignment, Vault may inform you that the assignment has incomplete prerequisites. Vault will automatically unlock the assignment once you have completed all prerequisite Training Assignments.

About Substitute Training Assignments

Training configurations may include training assignments which can be substituted for others. Depending on how your Training Admin has configured your training system, this type of substitution may occur automatically, or with an additional input from you upon clicking into an assignment.

The Choice Available label on the Learner homepage lets you know if you’ll be asked to choose between assignments. Click into the assignment on the Learner homepage or via your My Tasks view to see a list of all available options. Click the arrow next to each choice in the selection panel or dialog to view details such as the assignment duration or due date.
