How to Add a Member to a Group

There are two types of member roles that can be added to a group; Student members, and Group Administrators. Members that do not have the Student role and are made into Group Administrators can only manage the group they are added to and are unable to take training. Anyone added as a student member must have a license, including Administrators.
