Employee training now available
Employees now have access to more than 1,300 Web-based computer
and professional development courses through a pilot program,
offered by the U.Va. Division of Training in partnership with
ITC. NETg, a Thompson Learning company widely recognized as an
industry leader in the field, is supporting the program through
a customized “U.Va. NETgLearning” Web site.
NETg provides a cost-effective means for advancing employees’
knowledge and mastery of desktop applications and tools most common
to U.Va. It also offers extensive coverage of other information
technologies and related topics, including more than 200 courses
in business and professional development.
The pilot project is intended to help U.Va. employees achieve
immediate learning goals, thereby improving job performance
and furthering career development. Taking courses may aid employees
and their supervisors in fulfilling Employee Work Profile training
For a one-time fee of $135 per person, University-affiliated employees
access to NETg Learning for a year. Information about all the
courses, sample courses, registration and user instructions are
available at http://www.hrs.virginia.edu/dot/netg/index.htm.
Employees can call 243-5998 with questions.
The Division of Training will register users and provide account
and password information. Staff also will collect information
from users and other U.Va. stakeholders during the pilot to see
whether to continue or expand the service.
