About the Course Categories Form

If your organization uses Education Management to create any Courses records, you must create at least one Course Categories record. Each Courses record must be associated with a course category before being saved.

You can build a curriculum using Course Categories. For example, a curriculum might require students to choose two courses from one course category and one course from another to achieve certification.

You can create a hierarchy of Course Categories by creating subcategories. For example, a parent category of Business may contain sub-categories of Information Technology, Management, and Finance.
