Training Subjects

Training subjects are the high-level description of what's being taught in a course. Some examples are "Initial Orientation", "Data entry", and "Safety protocols". When jobs are defined that require their volunteers to have specific trainings, they'll require those trainings by subject. A training subject consists only of a description and length of time that the training subject is valid (if those trainings expire).

Set up subjects from Setup, under Training by clicking on the Training subjects link.

Merging Training Subjects

You cannot delete a training subject when one or more courses are set up to use that subject. You can, however, merge two training subjects together. Right-click on a training subject and select Merge with another subject. After selecting the target subject, all courses and trainings which refer to the original subject will be changed to the target subject, and the original subject will be deleted.
Merge training subjects window

Changing a subject's default validity period does not change expiration date on the courses already created with this subject, but changing the description of the course does affect those already created courses.
