University of Tennessee System Safety Policy SA0575: Programs for Minors, requires that all "Covered Adults" complete training at least once every two (2) years.
There are two options available to complete the training:
UTC Safety & Risk Management
UTHSC Human Resources Training
UTK Finance & Administration
Capt. Ray Coleman
UTM Public Safety
UTSI Human Resources
The online training module is housed in Skillport, the Skillsoft eLearning management system administered by UT Human Resources. You must have a UT netID to use Skillport. In addition, you must be pre-registered in the Skillport system. You can register one of two ways:
Important note for all users: The Skillsoft system will work more efficiently and smoothly if you first run the browser compatibility check to determine your computer's browser versions, Java version, and more: http://browser.skillport.com/bh/default.asp. The check is quick and will send you an email of your results. If the check identifies updates for you, particularly with Java, you will need to make those updates or you will likely be unable to access eLearning. Your department's IT professional and/or your campus's OIT helpdesk can help you make updates.
Existing Skillport users: If you have used Skillsoft eLearning in the past, you do not need to register again, because you are already registered in the system. You may log in as usual and click on the "Catalog" left-hand link, then the "Child Protection Training" folder. The "Child Protection Training" module is located here. Or, you may email Jenna Covington and request that the training be added to your plan.
Questions or concerns about the Skillport system should be referred to Jenna Covington. Questions about technical problems, such as Java or browser updates, should be directed to your department's IT professional or to the OIT helpdesk at your campus.
It is essential to keep training completions recorded in IRIS. Covered Adults are required to complete training every two years; in order to track compliance on this requirement, we must keep training records up to date.
If you completed the online training, your completion was automatically recorded by the Skillport system. Skillport completions are inputted to IRIS once per week.
If you presented the PowerPoint to a group, please email or campus-mail a list of attendees to your campus Designated Official (see list above). The list will be loaded into IRIS. This is the only way to ensure that your training attendees will receive credit for training. Please include the following information:
