What is the Training Requirements Assessment?
The assessment is an online survey designed to help employees at Yale identify federal, state and University training and form submission requirements they must complete by asking a series of questions that identify specific requirements.

What happens after I complete the assessment?
A list of training requirements (which may include certain forms) will display within the "My Profile" section of the Training and Certification Website. The list should be used as a guide to inform you about requirements that apply to you and to remind you about whether you have satisfied those requirements. In addition, a record of the training you have completed will be created.

Who sees my list of requirements?
This tool allows you, your supervisor (for staff members), dean or chair (for faculty members), and appropriate University administrators to review your training status for courses. Please note that certain courses are designated as "Private". These courses are not viewable by supervisors, deans, chairs, or University administrators. For courses marked as "Private", the word "Private" will display next to the course.

Are there different versions of the assessment?
No. All faculty and staff complete the same assessment. Postdoctoral fellows and associates and some students will also complete the assessment.

Who should complete the assessment?
Faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows and postdoctoral associates are required to complete the assessment. Note: Only you, or your supervisor (staff), can complete the assessment. To view your supervisor information, visit the Personal Information section of the My Profile tab.

Do I need to complete this assessment? I already know my requirements.
Yes. Every Yale faculty and staff member is asked to complete the assessment. You, or your supervisor (staff), will be repeatedly notified and contacted until the assessment is completed.

How often must I complete the assessment?
You are required to fill out the assessment on a yearly basis. However, if your role or responsibilities change (for example, if you change jobs or departments) or if new regulations/requirements arise within the one-year time frame, you may be asked by your supervisor or business manager to retake the assessment or complete additional training.
