How do I complete courses in Training Academy?

You will not be able to access the course until it has been assigned to you.

Before accessing Training Academy, or to address any technical problems you might experience, you should ensure your computer and browser are ready to use Skillsoft products by following the instructions in the Online Compliance Training Quick Start Guide (PDF) or this FAQ entry.

When your computer and browser are ready:

1. Access Training Academy via the link in the notice or the Training Academy page of the HR Learning & Development website.

2. Log in with your myBama ID and Campus Wide Identification Number (CWID).

Your myBama ID is the username you enter to log on to myBama. It is the part of your official UA email address ending in @bama.ua.edu or @crimson.ua.edu that comes before the @ sign.

If you are unable to log in, please contact HR Learning & Development at 205-348-9700 or HRLearningandDevelopment@ua.edu.

3. To access your courses, select Learning Plan at the top of the left column. Your current training requirements will appear in the middle of the page.
