Some of the training will only be available for a short time and the list of training opportunities will be changing, sometimes daily.

Supervisors may direct the employee to complete specific training or assign priority to specific training. 

Employees: Email documentation to your supervisor as directed. Documentation can include a certificate of completion, a copy of the screen that indicates completion, or if not available, document the videos you viewed, the policies you read or the courses you completed by listing the title, date completed and number of hours/minutes. In lieu of the emails, with supervisor permission, this can be done using a teleworking log available on the HR webpage/Resources or at the link on this page.
