Take advantage of your quiet time to catch up on UCOP trainings

If you’re like most of us, it’s tricky to get through compliance training or other important online courses without a whole lot of interruptions. Luckily, the office closure offers a perfect opportunity to knock these out of the way — and to check out some trainings you might not otherwise have a chance check out.

Required: Cyber-security training

Required annually, the 40-minute UC Cyber Security Awareness Fundamentals provides information on threats facing UC and what each of us can to do mitigate them. You’ll get an overview of critical cyber-security topics, including incident response, malware, safe surfing and human firewalls, phishing and social engineering, mobile and the Cloud, backup and preventative care, physical and non-technical security, privacy and policy.

Required: Sexual harassment training

These mandatory two-hour trainings provide information on preventing and responding to sexual violence and sexual harassment, and what each of us can to do to make our UC culture safer for all. This course the legal requirements of AB1825 and AB2053. (Please note that you will only have access to one of these courses in the UC Learning Center.)

Optional: Managing Implicit Bias

The UC Managing Implicit Bias Series is a six-course online training series designed to increase awareness of implicit bias and reduce its impact at UC.

You may complete individual courses or the entire series (to receive the UC Systemwide HR Managing Implicit Bias Certificate).

Core and elective courses, include local and systemwide programs and webinars, as well as in-person learning experiences.
