Additional Training Credit
The University encourages employees and staff to complete a minimum of 32 hours of job and career-related training per calendar year. Employees are encouraged to complete what they need to achieve growth for themselves and their departments. If you take a job- or career-related course, or attend a conference that isn’t sponsored by EOD or your local HR office, you may still apply to receive training credit by submitting the Request for Additional Training Credit (ATC) form.
