Online Training and On Campus Training Seminars
Throughout the academic year, Human Resources, Library Services, Physical Plant Dept., the Kardatzke Wellness Center and other departments offer exercise classes, training seminars, informational seminars, safety workshops and mandatory employment meetings.
AU has signed an agreement with lynda.com to make training opportunities available through the online resource library of over 1,800 courses that can be viewed in their entirety or on a topic by topic basis.
We especially encourage new employees to use the lynda.com online tutorials regarding Google email, Google calendar and Google docs tutorials. There are also tutorials on the Microsoft Office, use of Moodle, and graphics arts and design software just to name a few!
We encourage employees and supervisors to make training a priority. Whether you are being introduced to a new subject matter or software or taking a refresher course, your time will be well spent. Contact Human Resources if interested in taking advantage of this benefit.
