Creating and Managing Custom Learning Paths

Create A Custom Learning Path

A custom Learning Path consists of content selected by a Skills Team administrator to create specialized, skill-based training.

  1. Navigate to Learn > Learning Paths at the top of the page to go to the Learning Path dashboard.
  2. Click Create Custom Learning Path.
  3. Enter a name and description for your Learning Path. You can optionally select “Promote to a team learning path” if this path will be assigned to a group; if this option is not selected, the Learning Path will only appear in your list of Custom Paths. Note that promotion is permanent and this cannot be changed again after saving.
  4. Click Save Learning Path.

Add Content to a Custom Learning Path

Once a custom learning path has been created, content can be added from the Skills library. Click Learn at the top of the page to select content from Courses, Cyber ranges, Projects, Skills rank assessments, or Certification practice exams to add to the Custom Learning Path.

Note: Content from Skills Learning Paths and Certification Learning Paths cannot be added to a Custom Learning Path, but can be assigned to a group. For more information, see How to Assign a Group a Learning Path.

After selecting content, click Add to custom Learning Path. Open the drop-down menu to select the created Custom Learning path you want to add content to, then click Add to learning path.
