Scheduling a Staff Training

Previous Topic  Next Topic 

To schedule a staff training when the Staff Training feature is accessed from within the Services - Group module, complete the following steps from the AWARDS Home screen:

    1. Click Charts from the left-hand menu, and then click Services - Group.  The Group Services fly-out menu is displayed.
    2. Click Staff Training.  The Staff Training Information page is displayed.

    1. The date of the training being scheduled must fall within the Date Range on this page.  Make changes to the default date range as necessary (using mm/dd/yyyy format).
    2. Click the Staff in Programs drop-down arrow and select the program or group of programs for which the training is being scheduled.
    3. Click CONTINUE.  The Training Session Selection page is displayed.

This page lists any previously scheduled/held staff trainings for the selected program(s) that fall in the date range specified on the previous page.

    1. Click the ADD NEW SESSION radio button.
    2. Click CONTINUE.  The Staff Training Event Data Entry page is displayed.

    1. Configure the fields and options on this page to schedule the training.  For more information on those fields/options, see the Staff Training Fields/Options.
    2. Click UPDATE.  The training is scheduled, and a confirmation page of training details is displayed, and a "TRAINING SESSION SCHEDULED" internal notification message is automatically sent to the training's attendees.

  NOTE: If the training's start time is "off hours," meaning that it is outside of the hours of 6:00 am to 11:00pm, you will be asked to confirm that the time is correct before the training is scheduled.  If so, click CONFIRM.  If not, click your browser's Back button to correct the time.

  TIP: In some AWARDS databases an optional Duplicate button is available on the confirmation page for the purposes of easily cloning and scheduling another staff training based on the one you have just entered.  To do so, click Duplicate now.  If you do not see this option and are interested in having it turned on, please contact the Help Desk for assistance.

  TIP: To make changes to the training record at this time, click DATA ENTRY to return to the Staff Training Event Data Entry page.  To return to the Training Session Selection page from which another training can be scheduled or changed, click Training Index.

The process of scheduling a staff training is now complete.
