• Sexual Misconduct
• Global Harmonizing System (formally known as Right-to-Know)
There are several changes to the annual training for 2014. Employees can read about these changes on the Center for Business Excellence website. Some of the most significant changes include:

• New Sexual Misconduct training video and compliance acknowledgement to comply with Title IX and Campus SaVE Act. .
• Updated Vehicle Safety video
• Revised Right-to-Know training now called the Global Harmonizing System or GHS.

All training modules can be accessed using CourseDen and will take approximately 40 minutes to complete. The CourseDen password will be the same password as your Gmail account. Employees should watch each video and complete each acknowledgment.

It is highly recommended that employees review the instructions attached to this email on how to access all training modules. The instructions can also be found on the Center for Business Excellence Mandatory Training webpage. The Center for Business Excellence will maintain a weekly update of employees’ completion of the refresher training on the CBE website. If the status reflects “Completed” the employee has completed the module successfully. If the status cell is blank, the employee has not completed the module successfully.

The refresher training is for all employees with an original hire date prior to January 1, 2014. This includes full-time, part-time, students, casual labor and graduate assistants. It is the responsibility of all supervisors to ensure their employees participate in the required training. The deadline for training to be completed is November 14, 2014.
