Mandatory Training for UWO Employees

What is Mandatory Training?

The completion of mandatory employee training is required of all UW System employees at hire and then with retraining requirements listed below

  • Title IX / Sexual Harassment (retraining required every 3 years)
  • Information Security (retraining required annually)
  • Mandated Reporter (required once after 10/1/2019)

What is the Timeframe for Completing Training?

The timeframe to complete a training course is 30 days from the date of the email notification that alerts an employee to the course requirement.

Course Information

Courses are online and self-paced. Your progress through the course is retained if you leave and return to the course later.

The course tiles once you have enrolled in each of them through My UW should look like this within your canvas account:

How do I know if I need to take a course?

A notification email will be sent from to you indicating that a course is due. If the course is not completed within 14 days a reminder email will be sent, a second reminder email is sent if not completed after 21 days. If you have questions or need technical support for these mandatory trainings, you can contact

Once notified, employees need to enroll in the courses through their My UW Portalusing the buttons on the mandatory training tile. 

IMPORTANT: You must “re-enroll” through My UW Portal each time you re-take a course to ensure you are taking the appropriate and most current version of the courses. You CAN NOT simply retake the old course that may still be on your canvas dashboard, it WILL NOT be accepted! 

The tile looks like this:

Reminder emails may also be sent periodically by our office via Notices that an employee has a past due course will also come from

How can I tell if I completed a course?

On their current year e-performance evaluation, employees are able to see their “last notified” and “last completed” dates for each course within e-performance on the “mandatory training” tab. Last notified is the most recent date that the course was assigned to you. Last completed is the most recent date you completed that course. If you are current on your course assignments your last completed dates should fall after your last notified dates.

If an employee would prefer, they can also email to have our office look up their record and send them their current status information. Departmental status reports can also be pulled for department chairs and/or division leaders.

Can I remove old courses from my canvas dashboard?

Canvas typically continues to display the course card on your dashboard even after you complete it, which can be confusing. If you would like, you can utilize the “favorites active courses” option in canvas to remove a completed course from your canvas dashboard. Here is a link to some instructions on how to utilize the “favorites” to keep your dashboard clear of completed courses.
