Three units use the same learning registration system to track course attendance and certificate completion:
- Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE),
- Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI),
- Division of Human Resources’ Organizational and Professional Development Office (HR-OPD)
The registration system houses your training record and allows you to register for events, track registrations and courses completed, receive reminders, cancel courses and manage your training account. Your account registration will work across all three of these units.
To access the training system, you will need to register for your first course, which will prompt you to create a new account. You will only be able to create an account by registering for a course.
Click on the course title or link for the training course that you wish to attend. This will bring up a page that includes the name of the course, date, time, description and other details.
Click on the “Register Now” link that appears on the course description page. Once you click to register, it will bring you to the registration page. If you have not set up an account, please click on the sentence “[click here] to create an account and register.”
If you have already set up an account, you will need to enter your email and password to log into the system. If you used a personal email to establish your account, you may continue to use it or change it by admin request.
Single sign on (SSO) is not currently available for the learning registration system.
Enter your information in the required fields, and submit your registration.
Once you complete these four steps, you will be registered to use the training system, and you will receive a confirmation email for the course you registered for.
