What is Training Academy?

The Training Academy online learning system is used to provide required compliance training to University employees and students. All new faculty, staff, and student employees must complete mandated compliance training on Child Protection Policy, Hazard Communication, and  Harassment.  Annual training and/or updates may be required for specific topics.  Specific training may also be assigned based on employment status, work environment, or course enrollment. Visit the Compliance Training page for more information about mandatory compliance training.

Departments may also use Training Academy to administer custom training. Contact HR Learning and Development for more information.
