When you first log in
The first time you log in, you will have to change your password and log in again.
When you log into ATLAS you will see a grid displaying all of your training contracts. You can open a training contract by clicking the ‘expand’ icon on the left-hand side. Each record will open in a new tab; please ensure that you do not have a pop-up blocker enabled, otherwise these tabs will not open.
Using a mobile device
The ATLAS Portal is fully optimised for mobile devices on both Android and iOS. On a mobile device the menu will be shrunk to an icon that will appear at the top-right of your screen.
Sorting and filtering
On all pages you can sort grids of information by A-Z, date, or number, by clicking the column header on all pages. It will then display an arrow to indicate whether you have sorted the column’s data ascending or descending. If you click a third time the sorting will be stopped and the arrow will no longer be displayed.
In most pages you can also filter grids of information. For example, the ‘Training Contracts’ page offers you the ability to filter information by training contract status. The filter icon is located to the right of the column being filtered. You can then click this filter icon again to remove the filter, or click the ‘Clear All Filters’ button at the top of the grid.
If you click the chat symbol at the top-right of the window you will have the option to send us an enquiry via a web form, or alternatively you can call us on 1800 673 097.
