What is a Training Credit Approver? 

A Training Credit Approver is a identified contact at your company that will manage and approve the use of training credits included in an Enterprise Agreement. They will ultimately be the contact that works with NI's Customer Education team to get the process started for scheduling courses. Other contacts at your company can help with the coordination of courses, usually onsites, as long as the training credit approver has given approval to move forward.
