Q: I submitted an external training and have not received flex?
A: First, please make sure you clicked on "Mark Complete" on your external training. You will see this option once you submit your external training.

Cornerstone Marked Complete

If you are not seeing this option and instead are seeing a withdraw, that means you have your training end date set for a future date. The Mark Complete option will show up once the training end date has passed.


Now that you Mark Complete your external training, it will start the approval process and will go to your dean for approval. Once your dean approves it, it comes to Professional Development & Learning to complete.

If you still have questions, please contact Jackie Nolasco at jnolasco@elcamino.edu

Q: I took a required training on the Keenan website. When will those hours appear in Cornerstone?
A: Currently, Flex hours for certain Keenan courses need to be submitted as External Trainings.  If you took the course on the Keenan website, itself, and not inside Cornerstone, then that is one of the classes that you would need to submit as an External Training. The External Training request process is reviewed during the in-person Cornerstone workshops, as well as in this External Training tutorial video.  


Q: Is there a way to download an Excel file, where it will show a list of my activities and the total number of hours earned? 
A: Yes, here are the steps:

  • From the Welcome Page, click on the Dashboard link in the lower right corner.

  • You will see a graph with your Flex hours. Hover your mouse over the upper right corner of the graph. A black triangle button will appear.

  • Click on the black triangle. 

  • Select Refresh. This will make sure you are viewing the most up-to-date total.  

  • Hover over the upper right corner of the graph again and click on the black triangle button one more time.

  • Select Export to Excel.
