Training Registration

Training Registration for September through December 2018 is now open

Training Registration Process

There should be one Training Coordinator who registers all students for each agency/department. If you are a Personnel Specialist and would like to register in PPSD Training classes, please contact your Training Coordinator or email us at for more information.

  1. Click here: Personnel/Payroll Services Training Registration to register a student for Personnel/Payroll Services Training classes.
  2. Verify the student meets the prerequisites for the desired class. To view a list of course descriptions and prerequisites, please click here: Prerequisites ensure that each Personnel Specialist succeeds in learning the subject matter offered in the class. Personnel Specialists who lack the required experience may have difficulty with the material and detract from the class. If a student is unable to maintain the pace of the class, the instructor may request that he/she return to his/her agency/department.
  3. Enroll the student in the training class. Please DO NOT attempt to enroll more than FIVE students per class, per agency/department.
    Please note: If you see a class title indicating a specific agency/department, that class is open only to that agency/department, based on the results of our Needs Assessment. All other enrollments will be removed.
  4. The student will receive a system-generated confirmation email from upon enrollment. We suggest that the student forward the confirmation email to their Training Coordinator for recordkeeping.

Please note: All class dates are subject to change and/or cancellation.

Student cancellations received at least three (3) working days before the class begins are accepted without charge. Departments are charged $100.00 for each late cancellation and no show. For substitutions or cancellations, please contact us at

As we continue to broaden our development and delivery of training, we encourage you to let us know how we are doing. To offer your comments or feedback, please contact us at
