REQUIRED 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. 

Mandatory Employee Training
 

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

  • Harassment & Discrimination Prevention (retraining required every 3 years);
  • Data Security & Privacy (retraining required annually); and
  • Mandated Reporter (required once after 10/1/19; no retraining required).

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

  • The University of Wisconsin System has mandated that all employees complete web-based training on sexual misconduct prevention. This course fulfills federal expectations concerning the institution’s Title IX obligation. In this course, you will learn about your role in preventing sexual assault, harassment and discrimination. This training is required upon employment and must be completed within 30 days of start date. This course must be repeated every 3 years.
  • You will receive an email with a direct link to the course. Please contact Human Resources (hr@uwp.edu) if you do not receive this email. Emails are sent by lawroom.com (also known as EverFi). From line will indicate University of Wisconsin-Parkside. This email may inadvertently be directed to junk or clutter folders instead of your Inbox. Sort your Inbox, Clutter and Junk folders by from and search for the sender, University of Wisconsin-Parkside.
  • The University of Wisconsin System has mandated that all departments and/or organizations that accept payment cards as a form of payment comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) and complete annual training about those standards. In this course, you will learn about your role in preventing loss or disclosure of cardholder data. For employees in departments or organizations that accept payment cards as a form of payment, training is required upon employment (within 30 days of start date) and must be repeated annually.

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.
