VIU Campus

Access Mandatory Online Training

You may be required periodically to complete an internal training course created by the Health and Safety office, IT Department, or another VIU department. Employees who are required to complete such training will often be automatically enrolled in the required course. If this is the case, you will see the course appear under All Courses in VIULearn. 

Because the requirements for students vary widely across departments and faculties, students are not automatically enrolled in any of the courses offered through Discover. If your students need to take a Health and Safety course such as WHMIS or any other not for credit training in VIULearn, they will need to enroll through Discover. 

If you need access to a training course and do not see it has appeared in your courses, you may need to self-enrol in that course through the Discover tool inside VIUlearn:
