If you're not already logged into NilfiskU, you will find a registration link at the top right corner of your screen.  That will take you to an Admittance form that you must complete.  If you are logged in and are helping someone else to register, you can find the form in the University office (under the About NU tab).  Please note however that registration acceptance is based on the organization that you represent, and the roll-out progress of the university. Our current priorities are focused on our North American Floorcare "dealers". We will be expanding into other audiences in mid 2010. Regardless, we still want to hear from you and begin the registration process--even if that means a delay before your permissions are enabled. Contact our Admissions Office at mailto:admissions@nilfisku.com.

Go to the University office (in the About NU menu) and complete a Hall Pass Request form.  You will be contacted shortly.

Your permissions define what you can and cannot see. Make sure that you are logged into the University. Training and education content is made available depending on the types of products you sell, service, and/or operate. If you believe that your permissions are incorrect, contact john.sakschek@nilfisk-advance.com .

As you utilize Formal courseware, your progress and test scores are being captured and tracked.  The learning management system (LMS) records how many attempts that you've made, the time & date of each attempt, and what your test score is.

Obviously you can add any page to your favorites but, if you're using Internet Explorer, you can click and drag a page name directly to your shortcut items on your task bar.  Drag a menu title or subtitle to this area for quick access to that university section.

Nilfisk University is continuously deploying training content across all locations and areas of our business. The portfolio of offerings will continue to expand and evolve--targeting end-users, dealers, suppliers, and our own employees.

Anyone with an Internet connection has access to our online university. We don't restrict access but your registration defines the particular halls, libraries, and services that you have permission to participate.
