End-User Training Options

Instructor-Led Training (ILT)

After self-paced prerequisite courses have been successfully completed — with an 80% or higher final grade — end users are eligible to remotely attend Instructor-Led Training (ILT) sessions.

Most of the traditional lecture materials are delivered in the prerequisite courses, allowing training session time to be used more constructively to provide greater detail and information regarding course topics. Training sessions will be used to reinforce the content and processes delivered through the prerequisite courses and allow participants to glean additional details for a deeper understanding of the ctcLink PeopleSoft system.

These instructor-led, short sessions are designed for all college staff that have successfully completed the self-paced training specific to their pillar area. Sessions are delivered on a cyclical basis – monthly, quarterly or yearly with the goal to strengthen the skill set of participating staff.
