SkillPort is used to access all required SF State online training, and a multitude of other online resources.

Then, you will want to select EDU: Eliminate Campus Sexual Misconduct to begin the training.

When is the annual training due?

For existing employees, the training will populate in your training profile on October 30th of every year. It is due on January 1st.

 

Do I have to complete the annual training while on professional leave?

Please disregard these training notifications while you are on leave. Upon your return, you’ll be required to complete the training to fulfill your annual requirement.

 

I was recently hired in the fall semester before 10/30, and completed the training before 10/30. Do I have to complete the training again after 10/30?

If you timely complete the training after initial assignment in the fall semester, you do not have to complete the training assigned to your profile on 10/30 in that same semester. Your next training will be due the following January 1st. If you receive overdue notices, please contact Sara Lewis at saral@sfsu.edu, to have your profile updated.

 

NO LONGER EMPLOYED BY SF STATE

Why am I receiving overdue notices, if I am no longer employed by SF State?

You are receiving training notifications due to having an “active” account in PeopleSoft. When your status is made “inactive,” you will stop receiving training notifications. To inactivate your account, please contact Ask HR at http://askhr.sfsu.edu/ask

COMPLETION

Am I excused from this training, if I completed a similar training this year at another institution?

The training is designed to promote awareness of CSU policies, and includes an acknowledgement slide to that effect. Unfortunately, the training completed at a non-CSU institution does not satisfy the annual CSU requirement.

 

How do I acknowledge the company policy? 

The acknowledgement form is displayed after clicking on the hyperlink to read and acknowledge the policy. After acknowledging the policy and completing the remaining pages the status button on the left-hand side will change from a half-green circle to a full green circle, indicating that the training is complete.

 

Do I need to submit a certificate of completion?

Thank you for completing the training. It’s not necessary to forward a certificate of completion. No further action is required.
