Follow the steps below to learn how to use PECB KATE App in your IOS device when attending a training course:
Note: If you are already enrolled in a PECB training course, please skip steps 1 and 2.
1. Login to PECB Website
2. Enroll for a Training Course
After registering, please go to the Events page to enroll for the training course you are interested to attend. After identifying the course, please click the Enroll Now link to be enrolled for the course. You will receive an email confirmation from the reseller/trainer, and the course material will be assigned at your PECB account on the training day. If you do not see the training course in your PECB account, please ask the Trainer to assign the course to you.
Please note: If you have ordered a Self-study material to study on your own, the course material should be assigned to you earlier. If you don’t see the materials assigned in your PECB account, please contact the Reseller to assign the course material to your account.
3. Open Kate
Please download the KATE version compatible to your device. After the installation, provide the credentials of your PECB account to log in.
4. KATE Homepage view
After you log in, all the courses assigned to your account will be visible. You can access a specific course by clicking the Link course button.
If the desired course is linked to another device, and you need to link the course with your current device, click the Link course button and the course will be automatically unlinked from the previous device and get linked to your current device.
Please note: A course can only be linked with one device at a time.
5. Linked Course
After clicking the Link course button, you will be provided with the training materials which you can view by clicking a specific course day.
6. Submenu for a Course
In the homepage, please swipe left, and click on submenu at the top right corner, in order to add Feedback, Personal Notes, view Course Documents (such as Case Study, Exercises, or download the course materials locally at your device in PDF format).

- One course can only be linked with one device. If you want to open the course using a different device, click the Link course button using the secondary device.
- If you have ordered a Self-study material to study on your own, the course material should be assigned to you earlier. If you do not see the materials assigned to your PECB account, please contact the Trainer or Reseller.
