Employee Certification Program

Employee Certification Program

The Division of Finance and Administration is offering an Employee Certification Training. There are three different levels to the certification. Each level will help build skills and knowledge to advance employees to the next level. For each level completed, employees will receive a Certificate of Completion.

In order to receive credit for the training courses, employees must attend the training and score at least a 70 on the review for the course. Many courses offer a “test out” option. This option is available for staff members who have experience in the training topic and can successfully score a 100 on the review. Employees are only allowed to take the review once if attempting to test-out. If employees score less than the required score of 100, then the course will need to be completed in order to receive credit. These courses also count toward the Staff Council Professional Development Challenge when attended by staff members.

Each class is limited to under 10 participants. Early registration is encouraged.
