    There are two types of education pass available: LVC + Digital or Digital Only

    Here's a brief overview of what's included in each:

     

    Live Virtual (LVC) & Digital Education Pass

    • Live, instructor-led sessions called Live Virtual Courses (LVC) or Instructor-led Training (ILT)
    • Video versions of our LVC courses, called OnDemand training (as currently available for product)
    • Self-paced online courses called Web-Based Training (WBT)
    • Very short, self-paced videos called QuickCasts (QC)

    Digital Only Education Pass

    • Video versions of our LVC courses, called OnDemand training (as currently available for product)
    • Self-paced online courses called Web-Based Training (WBT)
    • Very short, self-paced videos called QuickCasts (QC)

     

    Depending on the type of pass assigned to you, your education pass provides you with access to all the training courses related to the specific product pass you've purchased for the duration of your subscription.

     

    Where Should I Begin with My Training? Should I Take Courses in a Certain Order?

     

    An important advantage that comes with your education pass is access to highly-regarded accreditations such as the B2B Master, the B2B Luminary, and the B2C (Responsys) Master, based on the product pass you've chosen.

     

    Once your education pass is active, it's up to you how you'll use it. You can choose to follow a path toward accreditation or simply take the courses that interest you and improve your knowledge.

     

    If you're just beginning your training, you'll want to log in and take a look around the learning portal to check out the courses included with your education pass.

     

    • On the learning portal home page, click on Assigned, as shown below, to view the learning plans assigned with your education pass.

    • You can take courses in any order you wish. However, some courses are designed to be taken in a certain order. To decide which courses to take and in which order, you can refer to our course list for your specific training product.

     

     

    We hope that you maximize the value of the education pass by frequently taking courses that will not only help you become more proficient with your Oracle Marketing Cloud products, but that will also help you obtain career-boosting knowledge and skills.

     

    Happy training and we look forward to seeing you in class!
