Compliance Training Requirements

Employees of Sacramento State are required to complete several mandatory trainings to be in compliance with federal and/or state law, and California State University policy. Employees may also be assigned additional trainings based on their specific role and duties.

Please use the link below to review the list of 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 to remain in compliance.

Compliance Training Assignment

  • 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 certification.
  • Email reminders are sent each week until the training is completed.
  • In the event certification expires, the employee will receive expiration notices with requests to complete the course to remain in compliance.
