This article will explain how to create training courses for your service area.

Creating Courses - how to create courses in your training area

If you're a member of your service's training group on GovernorHub, you will be able to create training courses from the Training tab of the Trainers group (if you can't see this group on your washing line, check your My Groups tab in case it is hidden).

You can group sessions by date, course or trainer, and toggle between sessions in the future and the past.

To create a new course, click on Create a new course.

You can then give the course a name and an optional description. You can also categorise courses by typing the category name (e.g induction) into the Categories box. Existing categories will appear as a drop down or you can add a new one by typing the name and hitting Enter.

You can also toggle to show if this will be an online course. Please note that ONLINE courses in this regard are courses that can be taken at any time (rather than a scheduled 'live' session on a particular date and time)
Choosing this option will make the course an instant clickable link to the resources chosen, and NOT a bookable session.

Once you've added all the details for a course, click Create. Your course is now ready to add sessions.

Updating courses

If you need to update the course title, description or categories, click on the name of the course in the course list and click Edit course.

If a course is no longer running, you can archive the course so you can still see the historical sessions but you can't add any more sessions for the course. To archive a course, click on the red Archive Course button.

Creating Sessions - how to create bookable sessions

Once you have created a course, you can now add bookable sessions. To do this, click on the blue button to Create new session.

You can then fill in the details for the session, including session ID, location, capacity, name of the Trainer and start and end times. You can also add a video or webinar link

Once you've added all the details for the session, click Create.

Updating Sessions - how to edit and update sessions

If you need to update any of the details for a training session, click on the session ID

Click on Edit Session to update the session details:

You can mark attendance for the session so that attendance is recorded and training completed is added to each delegates training profile on GovernorHub (see Marking attendance article

Here you can also Download a delegate list

To cancel the session, click on the Cancel session button. This will not automatically notify the delegates of the cancellation, allowing you to get in touch with them directly to explain the cancellation (see E-mailing delegates article)

To remove a session altogether, click on the red Cancel session button.

If you have access to the admin site you can manage training booking here - see our guidance for Managing Training on the Admin site
