Most vendors publish their online and classroom courses in a way that allows FirstForward to process
enrollments. This includes purchase of online courses that can be assigned and completed on this
website and student registrations that reserve seats in a particular class.
Some approved vendors are granted permission to also publish courses as external training. Such
courses can be discovered on the FirstForward Marketplace, but all purchase, enrollment and tracking
of course completion is managed on the vendor's remote website. External training will appear in the
Marketplace like other training, but will link to the website where the purchase takes place.
Because course completion is tracked elsewhere, FirstForward will not be able to automatically include
external training on your professional credentials. The student or the vendor providing the course will
need to enter that completion manually.
