A: Retraining Month field is not tied in any way automatically to the actual due date of any training. It is a report filter to assist you in managing the assignment of re-occurring training which you must assign to employees who are not new staff created in the system by you. By running a report with the retraining month filter of a certain month, ex. “October” - you can see a list of employees who need annual training assigned in October so you can choose them and enroll into the desired curricula or course(s) with a single click and set a due date of say October 15 and set email alerts to be sent automatically by the system 30 days before the due date. A due date of the 15th will give a cushion of 15 days before the actual end of the month.

You can always choose to run a class in HTML version to improve course performance or change your compatibility settings to improve functionality.
