Last updated on August 9, 2019

Gartner has named Proofpoint (Wombat Security) a Leader in Security Awareness Computer-Based Training for a couple of years as far as I could find.

There are many functions and features I like, but one thing I specially liked is how easy you can setup a training just with a couple of clicks and some basic information entered. The templates from Wombat is already good enough for most situations. In this post, I captured some screenshots to show how easily it can be done.

1. Log into Wombat Platform
Products->Training -> Assignmetns

2. Create an assignment
After you clicked Create Assignment, the creating page will need three notification emails. Of course you can select Do not send new assignment notification, but users suppose to be notify if there is a new training assignment.

3. Notifications
We will need three different type of notifications. You can find them from Administration -> notification menu. Those notification will need to update to reflect your new training modules.

4. Notification Template Change

5. Final to Create an Assignment
Now we can start to create a new assignment. I usually give users one month to complete and send out two reminders during middle of periods and one week before the end of training. I also will send out completion email to let them know they have completed this mandatory training. 

Modules depend on your subscription. You can add one or multiple one into your training assignment list.

Choose your users. You can do “Select all” to add all your Wombat users into list.

Notes: Sometime, user might missed and mis-deleted training email with assignment link. You will have to manually find out that link from their user account and resend it to them. Here is a screenshot looks like for this user account page.

You just need to click “Copy to Clipboard” then paste into your email to send to the final user.
