Mandatory Compliance Training

Employees of Sacramento State are required to complete mandatory trainings to remain in compliance with federal and/or state law, and CSU policy. There are several compliance trainings that are required of all Sac State employees. In addition, employees may be assigned additional trainings based on their role and duties.

The button below outlines the multiple mandatory compliance trainings assigned to employees, when they are assigned, how long employees have to take the trainings, and how often the trainings must be repeated.

Mandatory trainings are auto-assigned by CSU Learn, and employees receive emails from the system with training links and instructions. Employees receive email reminders until the course is recorded as completed. When an employee is due to complete a training again (called recertification), the employee will receive an email from CSU Learn approximately 30 days prior to the expiration date of the certifcation, and each week until it is completed. In the event certification expires, the employee will receive expiration notices with requests to complete the course to remain in compliance.

This list will be updated as needed to comply with applicable laws and/or CSU policies.
