How to set up Training Plans

HackEDU allows you to create training plans for individuals, teams or the entire organization.

We offer a few different options when creating your training plans:

  1. Adaptive Training Plan

  2. Custom Training Plan

  3. HackEDU Preset Plans

You can also choose to clone one of our preset plans & customize it to fit your organization's unique needs. For more information, see Customized Training Plans.

Important Notes on Training Plans

Hide Unassigned Training: If you choose to assign the OWASP Top 10 or a custom Training Plan to start, you may wish to hide the remaining lessons in the Platform so that your Users only have access to the Lessons assigned to them. You can easily control this by navigating to Admin > Settings > Content > Show All Training and turning off this toggle.

Hide Coding Challenges: Similarly, if you plan to leverage gamification and want to hide the Coding Challenges until you are ready to start your competition or tournament or assign them as a part of Training Plan, you can hide them from the "All Training" page.

Other helpful tips on Training Plans

The "Default Plan" option has two uses:

  • It will be the default plan that users will be assigned if they are not part of a team (Teams have a training plan associated with them, so any user that is part of a team will automatically get assigned that training plan)

  • It will be the default plan that gets assigned to teams created programmatically through our SSO integration.  You can learn more about this here.

Your organization can only have one default plan.

If you check the "Send Reminders" option on this page, we will send out periodic reminders to any of your users who have not yet completed the training.  

Add Training Phase

If you do not want to break up your training into various phases, just add all of the training you want in your plan into this first Training Phase.
