Learn how to use your Apprentice account.
Apprentice user accounts can submit OJT & RTI hours, log journal entries, track progress, and submit performance evaluations (if applicable). In the following guide, we will walk you through each feature of your Apprentice account and how to use them.
The Dashboard provides an at-a-glance overview of your progress. The first card, Overview, shows you how many hours you've logged for OJT and RSI/RTI, as well as how many technical competencies you've completed. The next card, Journals, displays a list of past journal entries you've created (note: not all apprentices will be asked to create journal entries). And finally, you have a summary of your Account information including your name, occupation, supervisor(s), and employer.
Clicking on the bell icon in the top toolbar will reveal your notifications menu. Notifications provide you with a summary of what has happened while you were away. You can delete the notification by clicking the round x button in the right corner of the notification.
