No. A wide variety of training workshops are scheduled throughout the year. Register for one workshop or complete one of the professional development certificates that are offered.
How do I know if my registration has been confirmed?
The Training and Development unit will notify you via your TU email address of your confirmed registration. You will receive a reminder one week prior to the start date of your workshop. Every effort is made to honor program requests. If a workshop is full, additional interested employees will be placed on a waiting list. If possible, additional sessions will be scheduled.
How do I cancel my registration?
If you are unable to attend a workshop, please contact the Training and Development unit at 410-704-6012 or send an email to email@example.com, at least three business days before the program.
Any of our workshops can be customized to meet departmental/work unit needs. Workshops can be tailored for a group’s specific requirements and issues, including a date, time, and location convenient for your work group. We can even identify a professional with an expertise to meet your training needs from internal and external resources.
This approach to training has many advantages, including being responsive to time constraints and specific concerns, and allowing employees to address problems and situations cooperatively in a way that promotes team building. For more information on departmental training contact: Mike Noll, 4-6015, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many required instructor-led workshops are offered annually. However since we offer so many workshops, some instructor-led elective workshops are only offered every other year. Below is a link to our schedule of upcoming workshops.
A full list of instructor-led workshops can be viewed, along with their descriptions, at our workshop descriptions link. Don't forget about TEC, Towson's eLearning Center, which offers thousands of courses online 24/7 anywhere you have an internet connection.
You can see the last time a workshop was offered by reviewing the certificate links, as well as previous schedules.
Please sign in at each instructor-led workshop. The sign-in sheets are used to verifiy attendance. Your completion will be added in PeopleSoft, the Human Resources database. You will receive a certificate upon successful completion of an instructor-led workshop. We also ask that you keep a record of the workshops that you completed as well.
When you notice that you have completed a certificate program, please contact the Training and Development unit at 410-704-6012 or send an email to email@example.com to verify completion. Once verified, you will receive a framed certificate signed by the Training and Development Manager and the Vice President of your division.
