Policy No. 855

Area: Human Resources

Description: Training

Adopted: 04/23/96
Revisions Approved:

Training is recognized as a vital and necessary activity that plays a large part in determining the effectiveness and efficiency of the college.

Although the new employee at the point of hire may bring the skills and abilities to perform the required activities, each position presents assignments that may be new and unique. It is the responsibility of each supervisor to assure that each new employee is introduced to the assignments, instructed in the operational procedures, and given the opportunity to try out the operation under guidance. Effective training can reduce the learning to reach acceptable performance and help employees increase their level of performance.

In the event of a major organizational change or approach that entails the necessity of providing group training or special training of certain employees, the supervisor will contact the Human Resources Department to set up a program to meet the specific training need.
