Sorry, I really despise the fact that I have to login with a new a different account to view these. Please tie my current account to Learning Advantage account or better yet, just add the videos to Youtube!

Hi @RyanM,


You never have to apologize for sharing your honest opinion! I appreciate your feedback. 


Unfortunately, there is not currently a way to tie mutiple accounts across Siemens. I agree this would be hugely beneificial. That being said, the decision to post these videos on Learning Advantage was made because the account provides access to all of an individual’s learning assets. This includes not just the free videos, but also course materials, demo parts, and course certificates. So it keeps all of your training materials in one place.


I did make the Learning Advantage team aware of your feedback as welll.


We do have tutorial videos (many on some of the same topics as LA) on YouTube and in the NX Design Knowledge Base, and we're constantly adding more. 


I know that's probably not the answer you necessarily wanted, but I hope I was at least slightly helpful Smiley Happy

Hi @Jahnsen,


Yes, you can log in with your current account if it is a Learning Advantage account, not a Learn@Siemens account. Let me know if you need further help!

Do tier 1 Siemens partners really have to pay for self-paced membership?

Community Manager

Hi @Madara,


Yes, the self-paced training must be purchased. The good news is you can access the above videos at no cost.
