Relias Connect


Relias Connect is an  social community.  While in Connect, Learners, Administrators, and Supervisors 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 visitingConnect FAQs   To access Connect, please make sure you are logged into your RLMS site first, in your primary role.   Connect is a single sign on entity, meaning you will need to log in from the RLMS each time, but you will only be asked to verify your identity once.

From the RLMS, click the Relias Connect icon located at the bottom of the left-hand navigation.




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 and 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.
