You can add the Staff who will be teaching the course, by clicking the Add button. You can add new employees in the dialogue box that appears. However, as we are scheduling a recurring course you will probably want to add these for each individual course later.

If you have chosen to use some or all of the Defaults available, then EVE will automatically have populated areas such as:

  • Modules
