Logging onto the database and uploading courses
This phase allows instructors to upload courses and assessments to the database aswell as submit and pay for certs online. We have been busy in the office with Brendan from Sulware, our developer, getting this phase ready to go live over the last few weeks. We are very happy with the work flow and functionality. Inevitably there will be some minor bugs that need to be ironed out so please keep us updated with your feedback here.
Once you have submitted and paid for your certs it automatically shows up on the member’s profile. This is why all participants of level 3 skills and above courses must be members. We need a record of their courses in case they go down the instructor route themselves. The office will then process the certs and post them out. We will have all certs issued within three weeks of the cert being submitted and paid for.
We recommend that all courses are uploaded at least 5 days before the start date to give course participants time to renew membership or meet any pre-requirements prior to the course. Note instructors will not be able to add expired members and anyone not meeting course pre-requirements, a full list of course pre-requirements can be found in the award scheme section of the website.
After the courses have been uploaded you can then go back into the course to submit results and order certs. Please note that the cost for certs to be sent in bulk to the instructor remains at €4, we have had to increase the price of certs posted to individual participants from €5 to €6 due to increased postage costs over the last few years.
Once an instructor is logged on to their online profile they should follow these steps. Click on images to enlarge.
