Charges are sometimes made to cover costs of materials, speakers, facilities, or equipment.

All computer classes cost $75 (unless otherwise noted), are taught on Dell PC's, and are approved for CAP/CPS re-certification. Departments are welcome to send substitutes. Make-up classes are not allowed.
We will make every attempt to contact you with reminders two to three days before classes. However, a reminder is only a courtesy; it is not a confirmation of your registration. Once you call and register, please consider yourself committed to the class and note our policy for cancellations. If you are unable to attend a class, please notify us as soon as possible so those on waiting lists may be called.
If a particular class you are interested in is at full capacity, please contact Employee & Organizational Development at (865) 974-6657 to add your name and phone number to the waiting list.
In the event a participant cancels from attending a training class, someone from our office will contact you up to one day before the class starts if space is available.
If your name is listed on the waiting list, you will automatically receive an opportunity for priority registration if there are no cancellations that allow you to attend. Someone will contact you before regular registration opens and Training Pages is distributed.
When you contact EOD to add your name to the waiting list, our staff is notified of the demand for additional training classes. Our department will consider creating an additional class to accommodate the demand. In the event an additional class is created, we will notify you by offering priority registration.
