Courses are categorized for IT and NON-IT Professionals. Whether you are an IT or NON-IT professional, you will have access to ALL classes. But when you choose to sign up as IT or NON-IT, it sets what you see as a “default”. That’s particularly useful for NON-IT learners who want maybe a class on Outlook or Excel, but don’t care about the innards of Cisco networking.
- Hands-on-Labs (IT) – These courses are intended for the serious IT professionals getting into the technical nuts and bolts of systems and software.
- Streetwise (IT) – These short courses are for IT professionals delivered by IT professionals.
- Courses (NON-IT and IT) – These courses are for both IT and NON-IT professionals (as opposed to Streetwise videos or Hands-On labs, which are geared towards the IT professional).

What Happens Next SkillSets then sends the learner the login link and credentials (username/password). This will allow access to their dashboard and browse the catalogue for classes to take. If the learner wants to take a class (or classes), they will need to request a library card. That can be done through their dashboard site. Once the learner has a library card, they can take any or as many classes as they want. The library card is good for 2 weeks and then it expires, but no worries, if you want more simply request another library card to take more courses.
