Tracking Employee Trainings Provided by a Third-party

  • Updated

Vanta supports monitoring the completion status of various training courses for various standards. These include General Security Training, CCPA Security Training, GDPR Security Training, HIPAA Security Training, and PCI DSS Security Training. The product does not allow an administrator to monitor a different type of training given outside of the Vanta platform; a user can create a custom onboarding task and have the users upload a screenshot of the completed training.

  • Select the group you want to view, and scroll down to Custom Tasks. If it is not enabled, hit the toggle (gray) to allow it to (should turn purple):

  • You will need to provide a link to the training and some kind of instruction, such as uploading a screenshot of the completed training or uploading a certificate. This is up to the administrator's discretion; once finished, hit the purple create button
