Especially for Faculty and Staff Members
In addition to the ACS Short Courses, which are available to students, faculty and staff, staff and faculty members can take courses offered through the Human Resources Department, the Center for Distributed Learning, and the UNT Libraries' Multimedia Development Lab. Additionally, the Center for Continuing Education and Conference Management offers a variety of courses to both UNT and the general community, usually for a small fee.
Mandatory Training on EEO and Sexual Harassment Law
State law requires that all new State employees attend training on equal employment opportunity and sexual harassment law. The law also mandates that employees receive supplemental training every two years.
• This spring, all regular UNT Faculty and Staff are required to
complete this supplemental training. Employees who were hired more
recently than two years ago will still need to complete the refresher
training. Human Resources does not track individual dates of completion,
but asks that all employees complete the training every other spring.
OPTION TWO: Register for Instructor-led training Wednesday, March 30 or Wednesday, April 13 To register: e-mail Melanie Betterson at email@example.com

Electronic Procurement (ePro) Training
As many of you are aware, the electronic procurement (ePro) module of EIS has been implemented. We have discontinued the use of paper requisition forms as of September 1, 2004.
ePro requires training for both the ePro Coordinator (individual performing entry/creation/tracking of the purchasing requisition) and the DeptID and/or the Project Holder (Approver). Computer security will not be established until individuals have completed the required training.
At this time, classes will be conducted at the Research Park, EIS Training Room. Directions given at time of registration. Please note: We reserve the right to cancel or change the training location for class attendance under 3.
Next classes are scheduled for Tuesday 03/22/05, note the times below:
Please e-mail Tina Koenig, firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating the time you plan to attend and for which class.
If you have not submitted an ePro DeptID Holder Information Form or an ePro Coordinators Information Form, please fill the form out on-line and attach it to your email requesting registration. This is necessary in order to establish security for your use of the system.
