Videoconferenced Training Opportunities

Human Resource Services collaborates with Academic Media Services (AMS) to make nearly all Instructor Led Training sessions available statewide through videoconferencing.  Just check for “Videoconferencing” on the ILT Sessions Schedule.

If you wish to participate in a videoconferenced training session, you must ensure your location will be connected to the session. To do so:

  1. Enroll in the session you wish to attend
  2. Visit the AMS Events Calendar and navigate to the session.
    Review the originating and connecting site locations.
    If your location is listed, there is nothing more to be done.
  3. If your location is not listed, request a site connection through AMS Videoconferencing Services
