STARS Upgrade - October 2017

October 2017


Learner Experience Updates

On October 9, STARS, our Learning Management System,was upgraded to include several improvements. Here’s a summary of the changes.


Certification of Completion Now Available

For every training you completed, you’re now able to print a certificate (PDF) that recognizes your training completion. Look in your Training History for the print icon next to classes or programs you’ve completed.

Improved Searching

With hundreds of classes and programs in STARS, we know searching for a specific training may be time consuming. We think you’ll see improvements when searching, because now you can use the Advanced Search link to search:

  • Course location
  • Category of training
  • "From" and "End" date if you’re looking for classes in a specific time block
  • Learning Type (e.g., online, classroom)
  • Name of instructor
  • Upcoming classes (e.g., search for all classes in the next two weeks)

Less Clicking

Clicks have been reduced to launch online courses that have no fee/approval. In Search Catalog, you will be able to immediately launch the online course and the system will automatically enroll you in the course.


Manager ID

Manager ID is no longer required for fee-based courses when administrators are enrolling a learner to a course.
