Direct appraiser (DA) is a system role which can be assigned to a learner account by administrators who have permission to add users. A direct appraiser will usually be someone who is responsible for overseeing the training of others (e.g. a manager).

Learner rights can be configured so they are able to remove their direct appraiser, select a direct appraiser and to select direct appraisers from sectors and services other than their own.
