REBELearn Training Academy

REBELearn Training Academy logo

The REBELearn Training Academy (RTA) is hosted by Human Resources’ HRIS and Organizational Development teams. The program trains department representatives to become REBELearn department administrators (RDAs) through virtual instructor-led sessions, documents, videos, and other helpful resources. Upon graduation, RDAs will have launched a departmental or university-wide training program. RDAs always have access to the training courses and resources so they can add and adjust training courses in REBELearn with autonomy.

The training curriculum takes 30+ hours within a two-month time frame. Your department will save time, stay in compliance, and automate training courses with ease.

“REBELearn Training Academy (RTA) helped me launch my training and migrate data from our previous learning system into a uniform platform. By switching from our former system to REBELearn, I saved the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine a large sum of money."

Elaine Aromin, Assistant Director of Contracts and Compliance, Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine

Course Descriptions

RTA 100: Intro to SABA Cloud/ REBELearn

In this lesson, you will learn the basics including governance structure, technical support, navigation, and other features REBELearn has to offer.

RTA 101: Uploading Content

REBELearn accepts all main training material formats. Uploading files, PDFs, PowerPoints, videos, and SCORM packages are crucial for a well-rounded training program. We will discuss the different formats and the pros and cons of each type.

RTA 200: Courses, Delivery Types, and Classes

In this lesson, we will discuss the fundamental building blocks for REBELearn: courses and classes. There are four learning modalities known as delivery types: web-based, virtual instructor-led training, instructor-led training, and blended. Learn about each and the importance of designating one for each training class.

RTA 201: Curriculum and Certification

Curriculums are powerful tools to assign individual subjects to an overarching topic (examples: Management Training Academy and our very own REBELearn Training Academy). RDAs can leverage modules and learning paths to achieve the ideal structure for their training objectives. Certifications are used for compliance requirements. In addition, RDAs can set up automated recertification paths to keep employees up to date with UNLV policies.

RTA 300: Smart List, Audience Types, Prescriptive Rules, and Notifications

Smart Lists and Audience Types are two ways to help target participants for your training. We have the ability to include or exclude users based on Workday data. Prescriptive rules can help us automate and schedule training so that we spend less time with manual efforts.

RTA 301: Assessments and Evaluations

REBELearn has robust assessment options to meet your testing needs. There are 12 different question types (e.g., true/ false, fill in the blank, multiple-choice, etc.) you can choose from to create your exam. Evaluations have the same robust building blocks as assessments. Users can automate evaluations to be sent in the future to their direct managers.

RTA 302: Analytics

Metrics, data, and automation can help us gauge participation, receive feedback, and compliance. We will explore the different data fields that correlate between users and training data. Also, we will learn how to schedule reports and give limited reporting access to individuals (non-administrators) or managers.

RTA 400: Managing Rosters, Attendance, Checklist, and Resources

REBELearn has powerful tools to manage class rosters and attendance. In this course, we will be going over how to assign, check in, and learn other functions pertaining to class registration. You can utilize tasks and checklists in order to create a full-bodied course. Resources are important information that can be added to help users identify instructors, physical rooms/facilities, and equipment.


The REBELearn Training Academy is hosted three to four times a year. Space is limited to 10 slots per session. Please contact for more information.
