  • My Training

    My log in credentials do not work for the exercise URL?
    Each exercise is developed with log in credentials that are specific to that exercise. These can be found both within the course when prompted to complete the exercise, and in the Exercise Guide. The Operator ID and Password are provided along with the Role in each Scenario.

    How can I reset my exercises?

    • Open the course to the Course Overview page
    • Select Options
    • Select ResetExercises

    Is there something missing from My Training?
    When you encounter an unexpected issue (for example, missing courses, exercises, lessons, or elements on a page), this is often because the cached content in your browser has not updated properly. To refresh your content, try this generic troubleshooting technique:

    1. Log out from all Academy/Community/Pega.com related sessions.
    2. Clear your browser caches and cookies.
    3. Restart your browser and log back in.

    If that does not resolve the issue:

    • Try a private browsing session, or
    • Try a different browser

    If the issue persists, contact SelfStudySupport@pega.com.

    Why am I receiving so many emails?
    If you selected “I am planning to take a certification” when you completed your course enrollment, Pega Academy will send you progress and encouragement emails to keep you on track toward achieving your certification before the course expires. By selecting “I am using this course for reference”, you have opted out of receiving emails.

    I would like to unsubscribe from emails.
    Please unsubscribe by opening the course you are receiving reminder emails for. Click Options, and select Unsubscribe from the drop-down, and submit the request.

    How can I ensure I will not lose access to my Online Training?
    Online Training is available for six months upon date of enrollment

    To ensure access to your online training materials beyond this period, students must complete the course.

    You will know when your course is complete if all of the lessons contain a green check-mark, and all of the quizzes have been completed!

    My exercise system has expired!
    Cloud exercises will expire after 15 days of inactivity, or 10 days after students have completed their final lesson.

    Activity is marked by completing a lesson. Simply logging into the course and reviewing previous modules will not mark your system as active.

    My course is not appearing in my transcript
    In order for a course to appear in your transcript, you must complete the entire course, marking each lesson complete.

    Please allow up to two business days for this change to reflect in your transcript.

    Why does my video have no audio?
    Pega Academy has some Demo videos that do not have audio. These simply demonstrate a method of configuration.

    Why am I unable to access the video?
    Pega Academy uses Brightcove for video delivery. If you are unable to play course videos, contact your System Administrator to determine if a firewall is restricting your access. If there is no firewall issue, then contact SelfStudySupport@pega.com.
