COMPUTER SKILLS TRAINING
For classes beginning in 2014, City Departments and employees will no longer enroll in computer software courses through Employee Relations (Training & Development Services) when the class is provided by an external vendor. Employees will instead directly enroll with external training vendors (including computer software training), pay up-front out-of-pocket, and have the costs reimbursed through the regular tuition reimbursement process on PeopleSoft self-service.
If a department wishes to fund a class for an employee, the department will be able to enroll the employee directly (the department will also pay the invoice directly).
This streamlined process will mean that class confirmations and changes to course schedules will also come directly to the employee and/or department that enrolled in the course. Upfront payment of computer software courses for city employees will only be considered for highly expensive coursework.
