Points (TOD) vs. Enrollments (TMC)

In Training on Demand, "points" could be used to purchase videos or enrollments. Now, Training Management Center uses "Enrollments", a 1:1 method where courses and videos cost just one enrollment credit per learner.


 !  Important notes about Enrollments in TMC:

  • If a learner does not start a course by the course expiration date (180 days from the date of enrollment), the enrollment will be credited back to your account.
    • Course Expiration in TMC: The date in which the system automatically expires the course and, if the course has not been started, credits the enrollment back to your account. The expiration date is 180 days from the day of enrollment.
    • Course Due Date in TMC: The date in which you would like your learner/s to complete the assigned course by. Due dates can be changed per course.
  • If a learner is enrolled in a course, the enrollment will be officially deducted from your enrollment allotment/wallet. Once a course has been started by the learner, the enrollment is non-refundable.

Students (TOD) vs. Learners (TMC)

In TOD, the employees receiving training were referred to as "Students." In TMC, they are referred to as "Learners." Adding and managing Learners in your system is still straightforward in TMC today.



You can also see course information, passing scores, and learner questions, as well as print certificates right from the learner's profile.

Classroom Records (TOD) vs. Classroom Programs + Training Events (TMC)

In TOD, Classroom Records was a way of recording information about a classroom program that took place. In TMC, this concept still exists with Classroom Training Events, but is a bit more robust.

  • Classroom Programs: Content designed for instructor-led programs in the classroom and on the job, including supporting materials like PowerPoint® presentations, quizzes, and more. From this page, you can add Classroom Training Events associated with the Program.
  • Classroom Training Events: Set up in-person training sessions by selecting details like the event title, date/time, Classroom Program to be used, trainer, training venue, and more. You can also choose the evaluation method, required passing score, or to make the event recurring.

Recurring Courses/Enrollments

In TOD, a calendar reminder could be used to indicate when a student should be enrolled in a course again, but the system would not automatically enroll. In TMC, "recurring courses" can be set up that will automatically enroll the selected learner/s in the selected course/s on a specific future date. The system also deducts the enrollments from your account.
