Expiration date and re-enrollment in Library courses

We are exploring the option of using learning library to host training courses, but I've run into a difficult situation in testing. 


I could put a course in the learning library, and assign due date and expiration date. Here is the problem: If I set auto re-enrollment, this library course will become required once it expired; if I don't sent auto re-enrollment, this course will be marked as "expired" but the learner cannot retake it (can only review) to renew the expiration date. 


This is going to be a challenging situation for us. We want learners to take the courses from the library, and be able to retake it once it expired only if there is still a need for staying current with the content. For example, a student worker may need a lab safety training when he/she is working in the lab, but no longer have the needs when he/she leaves the lab (so we shouldn't use auto re-enroll); a faculty working in the lab should always be up-to-date in the lab safety training (so auto re-enroll is ideal).


Anyone have creative solutions to this issue? I thought about creating two versions of the courses (one auto re-enroll and one no auto re-enroll) and have people pick their version, but this may be confusing to learners and learners also don't always foresee all the plan changes in the future.
