Appropriate Use of Training Time

All Washington State University employees are encouraged to take advantage of WSU Online Training Resources.

If courses are required, supervisors and employees should work together to develop a training development plan. The plan should include times when the employee can focus on the training.

A few items to keep in mind:

Courses taken for personal development, not related to the employee’s position with WSU, can be done on the employee’s own time using non-university resources. Note: personal use of WSU Online Training Resources cannot be done using university resources including time and cannot interfere with normal work assignments.

Inappropriate use of WSU Online Training Resources or the use of time may result in corrective or disciplinary action.

Questions regarding overtime (Fair Labor Standards Act) and work vs. non-work time should be directed to Human Resource Services.
