Mandatory Training FAQs, Resources & Information


  • SAM 2.A.11: 
    • System-mandated training is considered a minimum job expectation of all employees. System employees who do not complete annual mandatory training by the published deadline will not have met their job expectations and will, therefore, not be eligible for merit increases. 
  • SAM 2.A.26:
    • It is the responsibility of each System employee to complete annual mandatory training. System employees who do not complete annual mandatory training by the published deadline will not have met their job expectations and will, therefore, not be eligible for merit increases. Supervisors are responsible for monitoring their employees’ training performance. 


  • New Hire: 30 days from the date of hire
    • Enrollment based on hire date and ePAR date
    • Mandatory Training: October 2, 2017 - November 17, 2017

What if my employee is on leave?

  • If an employee is on an official leave from the university, and that leave has been entered into the PeopleSoft HRMS system record, the employee will have 30 days from the date of their official return to complete mandatory training.

How do I enroll in training? Enrolling and Unenrolling

  • Enroll:
    • Individuals have already been enrolled in the FY16 trainings based on lists from departments; however, all employees are able to enroll themselves into all trainings with the exception of the Mandatory Trainings and New Hire Trainings.
    • Enroll in any classroom or online training via PASS.  Instructions can be found on the LTD website:
    • HR has the ability to enroll or unenroll any employee in any course. 
  • Unenroll:
    • No employee should be unenrolled in New Hire (NH) or Mandatory Training (MT)
      • Even if the employee leaves the university, we still need to keep a record of the enrollment for audit. 
      • The employee will drop off the PeopleSoft query once their job data is updated in PeopleSoft.


  • If a training or quiz is not pulling up or is not pulling up correctly:
    • Have the employee close out of TAP, clear cookies and caches and log back in.
    • If this does not work, have them use a different browser (Internet Explorer sometimes has issues with our system). 
    • If this still does not work, send Ashley Waggoner ( a screenshot of what the error message is with as much information as you can (including PS ID, employee name, course, etc.)
  • Timing Out:
    • If an individual pulls up a training or a quiz and is not active for 30 min, TAP will time out and no data will be captured.
