Integrated System
Training Prerequisites

When the University of Virginia's new Integrated System goes live July 1, 2001, specific computer skills will be required to fully utilize the system. Training will be provided in the use of the Integrated System, however, certain computer skills will be required before attending the Integrated System training.

An Integrated Systems Project evaluation indicates that 90% of the employees who will use the new system already have the basic computer skills they need to qualify for the Integrated System training.

The table below lists the computer skills required, and, if needed, how to obtain them before attending the Integrated System training.

Please see Desktop Requirements for information about hardware and software.


Overview, navigation, and responsibility- and application-specific training will be offered to all University employees affected by each implementation phase just prior to "Go Live." Once training begins in the Integrated System for the current phase, this site will provide you with dates, locations, instructions, and topics.
