MySkills - Accessing eLearning, Unit Standards and my Skills Dashboard

1. How do I access the EMA’s learning platform?

You will either be redirected to the learning platform after you complete a new registration for any or event, or when you click the link from the confirmation email that you receive after registration.

2. How do I set up skills on the EMA learning platform?

When you log into the learning platform, you will see a pop-up letting you know that you can select your skills from the skills catalogue. You’ll also be invited to perform a self-evaluation on these skills.

You will have the choice of doing it now by clicking “Get Started” or postponing doing this by selecting “Not Now”.

You are not required to select your skills, but we encourage you do so. You are likely to see this pop-up until you have completed your skills assessment.

Completing the skills assessment allows the system to identify gaps and recommend programmes relevant to the skills you have selected.

Once you have completed your assessment, you will be automatically redirected to the main page, which will be auto populated with content related to the skills you have selected.

3. How many skills can I select?

You can select up to 10 skills during the initial skills set-up process.

Don’t worry. You’ll be able to select more skills later either in the “My Skills” section or in the “Skills Dashboard” section.

You can set-up a total of 50 skills in your profile.

4. How do I edit my skills?

Easy. You can change your skills any time by simply going to. You can also edit your skill form the “Skills Dashboard”.

5. Why can’t I see any learning recommendations in my ‘My Skills’ channel? 

This is because you haven’t added your skills from the skills catalogue. You will need to complete this step so that we can recommend programmes and courses that best meet your needs.

To get started, simply add your skills by going to “My Profile” on the main menu and selecting “My Skills”. Here you can select up to 50 skills from our skills catalogue.

6. How does the virtual coach work?

Our Virtual Coach will help guide and support you through your learning activities and allow you get the most out of our learning platform.

Currently, you can do the following with our virtual coach:
- Ask for recommended and topic-related content.
- Use it to monitor your learning progress.
- Ask questions related to any content on the platform.
- Use it to answer multiple-choice questions to improve your learning retention based on the learning objects that you have completed.
- Receive push notifications about new content, other content that may interest you, or pending tasks you have yet to complete.

7. How do I manage my enrolments?

Simply select the user menu from the top left corner and then choose “Manage Enrolments”.

This will redirect you to the customer portal, where you will be able to update your enrolments.

8. Why can’t I see my courses on the EMA learning platform? 

Don’t worry, your new enrolments may not be visible immediately. This is because it takes the system a few minutes to process your enrolment. This process usually takes between 1-5 minutes.

If you can’t see your courses after 20 minutes, please email us at

9. My eLearning is not marked as completed. What should I do?

This is probably because you have missed a course activity, have not watched all slides, or did not pass the final quiz.

To complete the course, simply launch the course again and go through it one more time to make sure that you have completed all the activities.

If you have done this, and the course is still not completed, please email us at so that we can investigate it on your behalf.

10. The eLearning component of my programme is locked. What should I do? 

If you need to complete eLearning as part of your programme, you should be able to access it according to the course schedule.

You can find this information, including how to access your eLearning course, in the confirmation email you would have received.

If for any reason the eLearning component start date does not match the start date outlined in the confirmation email, please email us at
