Helpful Hints

Completion of Mandatory Cybersecurity and Sexual Harassment Training

The 2020-2021 Performance Appraisal cycle ends on March 31, 2021. In the remaining weeks, employees should confirm that they have completed the mandatory trainings assigned to them. The Mandatory Training Certification section on the performance appraisal form references mandatory trainings in Cybersecurity and Sexual Harassment Prevention. The form notes that “noncompliance will impact the employee’s merit award.”

To confirm completion of mandatory training requirements:

  1. Visit the UC Learning Center (LMS)
  2. Click on Required Trainings – a list of assigned training and status will be available for review
  3. Complete any training that is still outstanding*

If you have not already done so, be sure to visit the Performance Management webpage for more information regarding performance management timelines and other useful resources.

*Noncompliance will impact merit increases
