Course Maintenance complete for the entire 192 course library

July 7, 2017

Maintenance has now been completed on the 192 course library. The library updates change the way the courses function in the following way: 

  • Pre-Maintenance TNG courses, once partially completed, report a failed status until they are passed. Post-Maintenance TNG courses will show In Progress in the user’s portal and not report to the credits by user report until passed.
  • Pre-Maintenance KNT courses, if in a failed state, will report a failed state each time launched until reset. Post-Maintenance KNT courses will report only one failed attempt until reset.

REMINDER: 192 course library offline July 5-6

July 3, 2017

MEA will be performing maintenance on the 192 course library on July 5-6. We ask that EnergyU Administrators make sure their users understand that no 192 courses should be launched during the July 5-6 downtime. Users may continue to take ASME, 195, OSHA, UGE, ELEC and Leadership courses during this time.

The 192 course library maintenance will begin at 7:00 am CDT on Wednesday, July 5, 2017. We anticipate maintenance to be completed by 5:00 pm CDT on Thursday, July 6. Administrators will be notified via this blog and the Administration Portal Page when users may once again access the 192 course library.
