Computer Access

If an employee does not have access to a computer in his or her work area, a computer in one of the various computer labs on campus may be used during normal work hours to complete the online training. Employees should consult supervisors regarding an approved time or location to complete the training during scheduled work hours.    



Please ensure that employees in your respective areas complete the required training programs. Supervisors can view transcript information for FT employees through the My Team function in My Learning Connection. Transcripts will be updated to reflect successful completion for each course, and certificates of completion may be printed to provide to supervisor if needed. The certificate will remain available in the transcript area of My Learning Connection if it is needed at a later date. Please follow these instructions to access and retrieve reports for your employees.
