Mandatory Training is training that is required by state or federal law or by college or system policies. All UA-PTC employees, whether full- or part-time, are required to complete this training annually, based on the fiscal year (July 1-June 30).
If any new mandatory training is added, PDI will announce it via campus e-mail and post details to this page. Instructions for completing and submitting certificates, when required, are listed at the right.
