Online Training

All UCA Faculty, Staff, Student Workers and Graduate Assistants are required to complete specified training seminars before the end of the academic year. Employees have the option of participating in all seminars online via our new online vendor, Safe Colleges.

The 2019-20 required seminars are: Workplace Harassment Prevention/Discrimination, Diversity, Title IX, Child Abuse Awareness & Prevention, FERPA, and Email and Messaging Safety.

Employees have the option of attending Workplace Harassment Prevention/Discrimination, Diversity, & Title IX trainings online or on-site. Registration for on-site seminars is achieved by accessing the following link: https://uca.edu/training/educational-seminars/training-list/

The University of Central Arkansas provides online training through our new online vendor, Safe Colleges. The training is interactive and contains many challenging and interesting real-life workplace situations.  It is requested that you complete the specified education courses within the first 30 days of the semester, but you have the entire academic year to do so. You will receive reminder e-mails to complete the educational courses. The courses can be taken on any computer with access to the Internet. Further instruction will be forthcoming in August, 2019.

Please 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.

You will be sent monthly reminder e-mails to complete the training courses. Each training is divided into sections and although you don’t need to complete the entire course in one sitting, you do need to complete the section you are working on before you leave the course. To access the courses you will need to log in to your Safe Colleges account

Online participation will be electronically tracked and recorded by Safe Colleges and ongoing reports provided to the offices of University Training and Human Resources. Attendance at on-site seminars will also be electronically tracked and recorded and kept in previously stated offices. If you have questions about the online content, training process, or material, feel free to email the Office of University Training at training@uca.edu.

Additional ‘Optional’ Online Offerings

Numerous additional online educational courses are available for employees. The courses will be included in the employee’s Safe Colleges homepage. It is up to each Department Head/Supervisor as to whether any further courses are required. These online optional courses (NOT required by the University) are for any employee to participate in and can be accessed multiple times.
