UC Learning Center Support

Getting Started

Welcome to the UC Learning Center Support site.

The UC Learning Center is a web-based learning management system (LMS) used throughout the UC system. A  Learning Management System (LMS) is a software package that provides management and tracking of learning activities to a variety of learners. The web-based access facilitates "anytime, any place, any pace" access to training content and administration.

  • Review the initial information as needed and then select Login Now!
  • Enter your UCR NetID and password 

Newly Hired Employees & Volunteers

New hires automatically gain access to the UC Learning Center within two business days of their start date or the date they are made active in payroll (with a Social Security Number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number), whichever is later.

UCR Students

Are you a recently hired employee or volunteer?

Newly hired student employees should wait until their employee profile is available to access the UC Learning Center. The employee profile should be accessible within two business days of being active in payroll with a Social Security Number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number.* Student employees should let their departments know about the connection between payroll status and access to the UC Learning Center if asked to complete training.

*If your Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) in the payroll system does not match your SSN/ITIN in the student information system (Banner) you will not be able to log in to the UC Learning Center. If you experience trouble logging in after being active in payroll for more than two business days, please check with your department's payroll representative and the Registrar's Office to ensure your SSN/ITIN is correct in both systems. Once corrections are made you should have access in two business days. Or your department may contact the Registrar on your behalf.

If after corrections are made you cannot log in within 2 days, or no corrections are needed, please contact the ITS Helpdesk ( and request they have their Identity Management team investigate why your NetID is not connecting you to your profile in the UC Learning Center.

Volunteers & Contingent Workers: Volunteers may or may not be made active in payroll. If you were made active in the payroll system but were not required to provide a Social Security Number, i.e., you are a contingent worker, you will not have an employee profile in the UC Learning Center. In which case, you may try to use the UC Affiliate Access Tool to push a profile into the UC Learning Center. If you are unable to use this tool, and you have never accessed the UC Learning Center before (i.e., you are not a former employee), your hiring department may need to issue you a Temporary NetID in order to provide access to the UC Learning Center.

Are you a former employee?

Is your account deactivated?

Are you strictly a student and not a UCR employee or volunteer?

If you are not a current or former employee, before you can log in for the first time you must use the UC Affiliate Access Tool to create a profile in the system. The link to this tool is found on the login page in the lower left under the heading Student & Affiliate Access.

If you previously worked at another UC campus but have never worked at UCR, you will also need to use the UC Affiliate Access Tool to access the UC Learning Center at UCR. If you ever do become active in payroll at UCR, then your current employee profile will be reactivated and moved over to our campus. At that point you will have duplicate profiles in the system, see below.

Nonemployee students and volunteers should strictly access the UC Learning Center to complete activities required for facilities access, such as when volunteering in a lab for academic credit. Food Safety training required for permits is included in this definition.

A note on duplicate profiles - Don't Panic:

  • Using the UC Affiliate Access Tool will create an affiliate profile in the system.
  • Being made active in the payroll system with a Social Security Number as an employee or volunteer will create a separate employee profile.
  • The system does not automatically reconcile affiliate and employee profiles. This must be done manually. 

If you have both an affiliate and employee profile in the system, you will only have access to the employee profile and lose access to any training records associated with your affiliate profile. However, those records still exist. If you think you may have duplicate profiles, please email to have your records merged under your active profile.

  • Clear your browser's cookies before starting a new eCourse by clearing the history or cache
  • Verify your Flash software is up to date and enabled. If your browser includes an option to list specific sites for which Flash is allowed, you might add to the list.

    Note: If your browser settings for Flash are set to always ask before running, you must then click to play or allow Flash to run in the course by clicking an icon or notice in the browser window. This icon is usually next to the URL field. Certain browsers, regardless of general Flash settings, will always require you to provide explicit permission for Flash to run. Look for an icon to the left or right of the URL field at the top of the browser window.
  • Verify that JavaScript is enabled in your web browser. (IE, Chome, Safari)
  • Do not leave eCourses paused for extended periods of time. If you need to step away, exit the course until you can return. Leaving a course paused for too long may prevent it from reporting progress back to the system server.
  • Exit a course using the Exit link from the course menu when available. If needed, wait for the course to indicate it is okay to close the browser window before doing so. Closing the window too soon may prevent the course from reporting progress back to the system server.
  • Save a screenshot of your quiz results and/or completion confirmation screen.
  • Note - Plug-Ins or Toolbars: If you have installed any add-ons, plug-ins, or toolbars designed to protect privacy in your browser, these may interfere with the system's ability to record your progress or eCourse functionality. You may want to disable them while attempting to complete online courses.
