Mandatory Employee Training

Effective Monday, June 1, 2020, the administration of employee mandatory training will be conducted by UW-Shared Services.  Centralizing this service for all UW-System institutions will provide opportunities for efficiency and streamlining of this transactional function

As an employee of University of Wisconsin-Parkside, you are required by UW policy to receive training on three topics:

  • Data Security & Privacy (required annually);
  • Harassment & Discrimination Prevention (required every 3 years);
  • Mandated Reporter (required) ; and
  • Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) (required if handle payment cards);

UW-Shared Services is moving to a standardized process for course delivery, compliance monitoring and employee support for the trainings listed above.

SPECIAL NOTE ON CONTINUOUS FURLOUGHS
 

Employees that have a continuous furlough are exempt from mandatory training requirements during the furlough.  If, during your continuous furlough, you receive a notification to take a training, please disregard the notification until you return to work.  You will be able to complete trainings once you return to job duties.

SPECIAL NOTE ON COVID-19 TRAINING DEADLINES:
 

Please note that President Ray Cross has extended the typical 30 calendar day deadline an additional 90 calendar days (120 calendar days in total) in light of current extraordinary circumstances related to COVID-19. This extended deadline applies to all employees assigned training during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic.  We will post updates as deadlines change.

NOTES AND RESOURCES

Next Steps
 

If you are due to refresh a mandatory training or recently began work with University of Wisconsin-Parkside, you will receive an email message from UW-Shared Services regarding the new mandatory training process on the evening of Monday, June 1, 2020. Upon receiving this message, you will be required to complete the Mandated Reporter training regardless of whether, or how recently, you previously completed the training. The other two courses will be assigned based upon the retraining timeframe compared to your most recent completion date. You will have 90 calendar days from receipt of the message to complete all courses assigned to you.

Please note that President Ray Cross has extended the typical 30 calendar day deadline to 90 calendar days in light of current extraordinary circumstances related to COVID-19.

Special Note on Continuous Furloughs: Employees that have a continuous furlough are exempt from mandatory training requirements during the furlough. If, during your continuous furlough, you receive a notification to take a training, please disregard the notification until you return to work. You will be able to complete trainings once you return to job duties.

If you have additional questions, please contact UW-Shared Services at serviceoperations@uwss.wisconsin.edu or your UW-Parkside Human Resources contacts at hr@uwp.edu .

What remains the same
 

For those employees required to complete the Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) training, nothing will change at this time. Plans to transition this course in 2021 from EverFi LawRoom to Canvas are underway. 

What is changing
 

You will no longer receive messages regarding these trainings from University of Wisconsin-Parkside’s Human Resources or Campus Technology Services departments or from EverFi LawRoom. Instead, you will receive messages from a UW-Shared Services email address: mandatorytraining@uwss.wisconsin.edu.

There will also be a single point of contact providing support for these trainings. If you have questions or need technical support for these mandatory trainings, you can click on the Help link in the left-hand column of Canvas. For questions about the course, or your requirement to complete the course, contact: serviceoperations@uwss.wisconsin.edu.

These trainings will be delivered in the Canvas learning management system. Some of the training content will look familiar. You will need to enroll in and complete the trainings in Canvas. The email message you will receive provides a link and instructions for accessing the trainings in Canvas.

As training administration moves to UW-Shared Services, student employees (graduate and undergraduate) will be required to take all employee mandatory trainings. UW-Shared Services will send emails to student’s staff email accounts (not their student email accounts). All students must activate and monitor their staff email account for emails regarding mandatory training requirements.

Other employee populations, including Associate Lecturers, University Staff Temporary and other short- term employees, may not have activated their staff emails and will need to do so.
