Relias Connect

Relias Connect is an online social community.  While in Connect, users can: share ideas, ask questions, start discussions, contact Relias Support, or browse and read articles on topics that interest them.  If you are new to Connect, we recommend visiting Welcome to Relias Connect and Community FAQsTo access Connect, click the Relias Connect icon in the top right corner while logged in to your RLMS account.


Every Learner, Administrator, Supervisor, Instructor, Data Entry and Observer will have a Connect profile created upon first time logging in to Connect.  Users with permission levels greater than a Learner (e.g., Administrators) have access to more content on Connect than a Learner does, specifically access to the Support Portal.


Help & Support Portal

Once inside the Support Portal, there are number of different ways to contact Relias Support or find helpful information.



Learner Support Portal - This contains helpful troubleshooting guides, along with download links, browser help pages, and operating system help pages. This is meant to assist you with any obstacles you may encounter while navigating the site, or taking any Relias courses. 

This is also accessible by anyone, regardless of whether they are logged into Connect or not. 


Administrator Support Portal and Training Calendar - This portal is restricted to Relias Site Administrators &Supervisors.
