Frequently Asked Questions

What if I have already signed up for Diversity, Title IX or Workplace Harassment Prevention/Discrimination on-site, can I cancel and complete the online options instead?

Yes. But please email to cancel your space in the on-site seminar.

Can I come back to my online training if I don’t complete it in one sitting?

Yes.  You don’t need to complete the entire course in one sitting. When you come back to the course you can continue with the next section.

Who has to complete the trainings and what is required?

All employees of the University, full time and part time faculty, staff, student worker and graduate assistant need to complete the required trainings by the end of the academic year. If you are on the UCA payroll you are expected to complete the required training seminars. The required trainings are: Workplace Harassment Prevention/Discrimination, Title IX, Boundary Invasion, Diversity, FERPA, and Cybersecurity Overview.

Note: Your training account access will only be active while you are considered actively employed at UCA.  If you are a part-year employee, such as an adjunct employed during only one semester, you should complete all required online training during the time period you are considered an employee of the University.

Will we have to do this every year?

Yes. There will be a variation of the required trainings but each year employees are asked to be educated on important workplace laws, policies, and behaviors.

How do I access the online trainings?

Log in instructions-

1. Access myUCA at and search for SafeColleges
2. Click on the SafeColleges tile
3. Select the Employees box
4. If prompted for log in, enter your UCA username and password
5. You will be redirected to your SafeColleges training page

SafeColleges will also send regular email reminders to the employee regarding the required trainings. The emails will stop once all required trainings are completed.

Will I still have the option of attending on-site training seminars?

Yes. Workplace Harassment Prevention/Discrimination, Diversity, and Title IX are provided on-site. There are additional on-site seminars provided as well, although they are voluntary.

Do I have to print the completion certificate or send an email to show participation in the online programs?

No. HR and University Training will keep records of participation and completion. We do not require you to send a certificate of completion. HOWEVER– Some supervisors ask their employee to print the certificate to validate seminar completion.

What if I complete the Diversity, Title IX or Workplace Harassment Prevention/Discrimination on-site but my SafeColleges account displays Diversity, Title IX or Workplace Harassment Prevention/Discrimination as incomplete?

When an employee attends the on-site seminars, the Office of University Training staff records participation and credits the employee for the training on the SafeColleges site. This process takes 2- 3 days. If you continue to see incomplete records and have attended the on-site training, please email and we will take care of the discrepancy.

Will I get paid if I complete the training outside of normal working hours?

No. The employee should complete the trainings (on-site and online) during the employee’s shift and normal working hours. For online training, if a computer is not available in that particular department, computers can be accessed in the UCA library.
