Managing Course Registration and Completion Email Notifications

by Sarah Southerland

You can select to have students and/or Dashboard admins receive an automatic email when the student registers for and/or completes a course or learning path. 

To customize Live Training or Course Completion emails, view our help article about Customizing Notification Emails.

To do so for courses:

  1. Go to Course Management and select a course.
  2. Click on the Actions tab [for more information on the actions tab view our help article about automating and customizing your messaging]


  1. Scroll to the Registration Actions and Completion Actions

  2. Choose who you want to receive emails:
    • Email Student on Registration: This sends the student a confirmation email when they register to this course.
    • Email Instructor on Registration: This will send an email to the organization's notification email (set in Organization Settings) when a student registers to the course.
    • Engagement Email: This will send an email to students a certain cadence of days after registration. View our help article about automating and customizing your messaging
    • Email Student on Completion: This sends the student an email when they complete the course. Information about certificate generation will be included if applicable.
    • Email Instructor on Completion: This will send an email to the organization's notification email when a student completes the course.

To do so for a learning path:

  1. Go to Catalog Settings for your domain, then select the Published Paths tab and click the name of your path.
  2. Scroll to Enrollment Settings and indicate if you would like students, the organization, or both to receive an email notification upon the student registration:


Please note: there is not currently an email notification for the completion of a Learning Path.

To change your organization's notification preferences (email notifications Skilljar sends to you when specific actions happen), follow the instructions outlined in Configuring Organization Settings.

Example Emails:
