Is there a fee to participate in these programs?

Most professional development training programs are free for employees. Special programs that require an application such as the Leadership Academy and Management Academy charge the department for the employee’s participation.

How do I register for a training program?

Simply obtain your supervisor's approval, complete the on-line registration process, and await an electronic confirmation. A reminder notice will be sent to you via email, but you should add the training details to your personal calendar immediately.  If you experience difficulties, please contact the Learning and Development department at 7-2218.

How do I cancel my registration?

If you can no longer attend a training program, log into the registration site HERE, choose “My Enrollment History,” from the menu on the left, click the program you wish to drop, and click “Request Drop.”

What is Learning & Development and how is it different from training?

Learning & Development (L & D) involves analyzing a situation and making recommendations on how to improve a work unit’s functioning. Sometimes an L & Dintervention may involve a training program but may also include coaching, mentoring, process analysis, mediation and meeting/retreat planning and facilitation

How do I schedule a training program for my department?

If you are a unit head and would like a program tailored and delivered to your staff as a group, please contact Eric Brunner, Asst. VP, Learning and Development, at 7-2215 and we will meet with you to schedule or even design a course that is just right for you and your staff!
Can I schedule one-on-one coaching?
If you feel you would benefit from one-on-one coaching, L & D will do our best to accommodate you. If you haven’t yet, look through the course offerings for the semester and see if the workshops touch upon issues you feel you need assistance with first. If you feel you need more individual help, we'll be glad to meet with you and other people in your work unit if appropriate to help you perform at your best. Contact Eric Brunner at 7-2215 for more information on coaching.
