Training

Here you’ll find a variety of formal and informal learning and training opportunities for members of the Yale Community.  These range from required safety courses to professional skills workshops to business system training.  Training is provided in a variety of ways; classroom instruction, online services including Lynda.com, and one-on-one personalized support.  In many cases, staff may require business office leadership approval prior to enrolling.  Please check with the system owner, your Operations Manager or Lead Administrator for details.

If you are seeking system-specific access and information, please refer to either the Systems Access area or the Information Technology Support (ITS) Business Office Guide to System Access

Financial training

Financial training opportunities are numerous and guided by the requirements of your position as directed by your business office.  

My Time (Kronos)

My Time (Kronos) is Yale’s online timekeeping system for staff members to keep track of their hours worked and paid time off balances. Training materials, quick guides and frequently asked questions are available to help you get started using the My Time (Kronos) application.

Training Management System

Yale’s Training Management System (TMS) manages information related to required training and forms for university faculty and staff. TMS helps educate the Yale community about required training and forms, facilitates online training registration, and ensures training completion.

Travel & expense training

Purchasing Cardholders and their assistants are required to participate in training to ensure a clear understanding of their responsibilities as cardholders and users of the University Purchasing Card and the Expense Management System (EMS). Yale travel arrangers can learn how to use the Egencia travel booking tool for business-related travel.

Workday training materials

Online resources are available to assist users in managing human resources and payroll processes via the Workday system—Yale’s system of record. Staff and faculty can use Workday to view and modify their benefits; to edit their profile information (including changes in their dependents, address, emergency contact, and marital status); to alter their tax withholdings; to set up or revise direct deposit; and to view their pay slips and print W-2 forms. For managers, initiating job posting and hirings or making changes in their staff’s job descriptions and compensation will be easier through Workday. Academic departments can use the system to support faculty and post-doc appointment and promotions processing.

Learning and enrichment opportunities

Yale staff can take advantage of an array of opportunities that the university provides to manage and enrich their careers.
