      Hello Michael,

      Thank you for detail steps. I already followed the same steps but it was somehow not showing the course immediately after creating learning hub user. I just tried and it's visible now. I think it takes a bit of time after the user is created. Thank you again!

      Regards,

      Tapan

      Hello Michael,

       

      The registration links are not working, can you please check and fix the same. I am already registered for Learning hub and can access other learning content.

      Hi Aayush,

      While you may have access to the Learning Hub, it is possible you do not have access to the Enterprise Support edition.

      This would be the reason you can access some content but not these MTE sessions.

      Please follow the steps I put in other responses here and that should fix it for you.

      Otherwise reply again and I will look into it further.

      Thanks,
      Michael.

      Hi Elizabeth,

      Part 1 is on right now so it is too late to join that live session. The replay will be available in the Learning Hub in the next 2-3 days so you can access very soon.

       

      You can still register for Parts 2-5. please use the links in the blog and reply if you encounter problems.

      Regards,

      Michael.
