University of Idaho Employees Required to Take Specific Trainings Each Year
February 25, 2020
The University of Idaho recognizes the importance of providing training opportunities to all employees to enhance skills, professionalism and well-being. All employee training and required job-specific training play a key role in clarifying expectations and responsibilities and minimizing risk to the university. The university president or his designee assigns required training for all employees to complete each calendar year. These required courses may be mandated by federal or state regulations or address a legal, financial or physical risk that could significantly impact the university.
The 2020 all-employee training topics include:
- Creating a Respectful Community: An annual training required by the State of Idaho that raises awareness of the various topics of discrimination, harassment and sexual violence. The course includes scenarios, skill practices, U of I policies and resources.
- Diversity and Inclusion: Aligns with the U of I Strategic and Diversity Plans. The training includes awareness, skills, knowledge, attitudes, behaviors and beliefs developed to interact with and better serve diverse populations.
- Fire Safety: An annual training required by the State of Idaho Fire Marshal that reviews fire prevention, evaluation and fire safety policies and procedures at all U of I locations.
- IT Security: An annual training required by Idaho Executive Order 2017-02 that provides cyber security awareness and best practices for employees.
All regular faculty and staff, temporary faculty and staff and student employees including graduate students with appointments lasting longer than three months must complete training no later than Friday, Dec. 11, 2020. Employees who do not complete the required training by the deadline may be subject to administrative or disciplinary actions.
