We can even identify a professional with an expertise to meet your training needs from internal and external resources.

This approach to development 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, contact Michele Hunt at x4-6012 and .

How frequently are instructor-led workshops scheduled?

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.

How do you track workshop completions?

Please sign in at each instructor-led workshop. The sign-in sheets are used to verify attendance. Your completion will be added in PeopleSoft, the Human Resources database.
