Training providers

Learning Central is a free learning registration system designed to serve as the hub for all employee learning opportunities. Learning Central offers employees one-stop-shopping; affords training providers an easy tool to manage courses and learning records from across campus; and provides supervisors with an effective way to monitor employee development.

Learning Central is NOT for managing meetings, committees or events.
When in doubt, ask this question: do participants need a learning record of the event? If yes, then Learning Central may be your solution. If not, the university promotes the use of another great application for event and conference management named Eply.
