The WooCommerce Customer Experience
With WooCommerce you can have complete control over your cart and checkout process.
The default WooCommerce checkout process will send the users to their cart, after clicking the purchase button of the Thrive Apprentice course they plan to buy. On the checkout page, they can review their cart, apply discount codes (if applicable), and then complete the payment.
Upon payment completion, WooCommerce will send several e-mails to the user, containing the account login credentials as well as other order details.
So, if the users try to access the course in the same browser in which they initially tried, then the access will be instantly granted to them. If they are trying to access it from a different browser then they will have to log in using the credentials sent to them via e-mail.
What you can do, is to set up a login button on the course page, just as described in this article, thus giving the user the possibility of logging in directly from the Thrive Apprentice course list page.
