Frequently Asked Questions

How do I login to the TRI Learning Centre?

There are two methods for logging in:

1. Full TRI credentials: If you have been issued full TRI credentials (e.g., for PPMS, TOPS, the TRI intranet), you won't need to type these into the Learning Centre. Instead click on the orange 'TRI credentials' button on the login screen. This will direct you to log in using TRI single sign on.

2. Learning Centre specific credentials: You must use the grey 'Learning centre credentials' button to log in. Your TRI username (which is typically the same as for your full TRI credentials) will be contained in your welcome email for the training site.

For your very first log in to the Learning Centre using this method, your TRI username will serve as your password also. The password you set from within the Learning Centre is specific to the Learning Centre and will not provide access to other TRI systems.

It doesn't matter which of the two logins you use, as they are both linked to the same account.

I forgot my username/password.

1. Full TRI credentials: Your TRI password can be reset via TOPS. Remember, this will only work from within the TRI network (or a VPN). The link in the password reset email TOPS generates will be valid for 30 minutes.

If you are experiencing difficulty with your VPN or TRI network access, please contact your partner IT support for assistance.

2. Learning Centre specific credentials:  Click on the grey 'Learning centre credentials' button and use the 'Forgot your password' option to reset your details. Note this process will update your TRI Learning Centre login details only and will not affect TOPS, the intranet or PPMS.

Please contact us if this process is not successful.

Which courses do I need to complete?

You will be automatically enrolled in mandatory induction courses based on the type of work you will be doing at TRI:

  • Personnel working in the laboratory (and those who supervise personnel working in the laboratory) must complete the TRI lab safety, TRI chemical safety, & TRI fire safety modules. 
  • All other personnel must complete the TRI general safety and TRI fire safety modules.

How long do I have to complete the courses?

New users will have 30 days from the time of your invite to complete the required e-learning modules. If this date passes, your TRI building and printing access will be suspended until you have completed the courses. 

How often do I need to complete the courses?

Will I need to complete training renewals?

Many of our training modules have renewal intervals (this will typically be listed in the 'course description'). You will receive reminder notifications starting 2 weeks before your course completion expires. After the renewal date passes, your TRI building and printing access will be suspended until your course is refreshed.

You do not need to be on site at TRI to log into the learning centre. Provided you know your log in details, you can sign in from anywhere. 

How do I self-enrol into additional courses?
