Canvas Training Services Portal

Within Canvas (In the Help navigation tab) lives the Training Services Portal. This portal offers you asynchronous training courses that you can enroll in and complete on your own time. Many of the trainings offer a badge at the completion of the content. To access the Training Services Portal, follow the steps outlined in this article: How to Access the Training Services Portal

This Canvas Community post further explains how to access the Training Services Portal and enrolling in courses.
