This article describes the Job Role Paths screen. On this screen, enterprise team managers and administrators can assign any of a set of special training plans that are associated with a particular job role.
Note: Job Role Paths have a similar name to another feature, Job Roles. See How Job Roles are Different from Job Role Paths to understand the differences between these terms.

What Are Job Role Paths
Job role paths are specific training plans that Cloud Academy has identified as helping a learner prepare for a particular job. The job role paths are:
- Cloud Architect
- Data Engineer
- DevOps Engineer
- Machine Learning Engineer
- Software Engineer
Each job role path has multiple training plans for various experience levels to help learners get ready for a position with that job role.
Users and managers can find job role paths in the training library. Members can assign themselves a job role training plan through the training library. Members can also choose a job role path when they first start their account if they choose the Job Role Path option during onboarding.
Managers can assign a job role path to a team or individual member through the library or through the Job Role Paths screen. Assigning a job role path through the Job Roles screen accomplishes the same thing as through the library but is easier.
