Who do I contact regarding my mandatory trainings?

If you have questions regarding your mandatory trainings, please visit the Office of Compliance mandatory training site.  To view your mandatory trainings in the UC Learning Center, from the homepage, select the Required Training button; you can also search for the course name.

Why did I receive a reminder email about a mandatory/required training when my training analysis page displays an "acquired" status for the course?

Your training analysis page lists your assigned required/mandatory trainings.  Although the assigned status displays "acquired", some assigned trainings have a required retraining so it is important to pay attention to the due date and/or expiration date; see explanations below and more on mandatory trainings.




Assigned Date the date the training was assigned to you
Due Date the date the training is due; notifications are based on this due date
Last Completed the date you last completed the training
Expiration Date the date the training will expire (if it is a recurring training)
Assignment Status
  • Assigned status means you have not completed the requirement.
  • Attended status means:
    • you have completed the requirement.
    • and the training is NOT a certification.
  • Acquired status means:
    • you have completed the requirement.
    • and the training is a certification.
    • if there is an Expiration Date, the training is a recurring requirement.
    • if Expiration Date is blank, the training is a one-time requirement.
    • IMPORTANT:  For a recurring required training, an "acquired" status displays on the training analysis page but an "attended" status on the course registration page.
  • Expiring Soon status means:
    • there is an approaching expiration date.
    • NOTE:  check Expiration Date
