I am a new employee. Why can't I log in?
It may take up to 4 days to be added to the Learning Hub. As well, you and your manager will need to have completed all hiring steps in order to gain access. You will also not have access to the Learning Hub until your official start date. Please contact the Cal Poly Learning Hub, firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions.
I am Retired/No Longer Employed, why I am still receiving email notifications?
Emails are automatically sent to individuals who have an active job record. When you stop working, it may take some time before your record is inactivated in the system. If you are not employed, you do not need to complete the training.
I am on leave, why I am still receiving email notifications?
Emails are automatically sent to individuals who have an active job record. We are working on adjusting assignments for employees who are on leave, but this has not yet been implemented. Training can be taken when the individual returns from leave.
Why is the course a blank page?
Learning Hub online courses launch in two windows: the content window and the tracking window. This “in progress” screen is the tracking window. Please minimize the tracking window and see if the course content is available in any other open windows. If you still can’t find the course content, please disable your popup blocker and re-launch the training.
Why is it showing I already have taken the training previously?
This is referring to the expired completion and the training will need to be completed again. When you go to the Learning Hub and click on Assigned Learning to access the training module, click on "Start" and a prompt will appear asking if you would like to restart or review the course. Please select "Restart" so that you can overwrite the expired progress from last year and receive completion credit for training. See the list of compliance trainings to know when re-certification is required.
