Training classes are free and open all Georgia Perimeter College employees. Employees from any campus may attend classes on any other campuses. Employees who have attended a specific course previously are welcome to attend that same course again at any time, on any campus.
We will gladly schedule training sessions specifically for departmental or other groups. A representative from the group should place a work order with the helpdesk to schedule training. A minimum of 3 participants are required. Times and dates are subject to the training personnel schedules and computer room availability (note: we can offer special training online via Wimba Classroom). If your group would like a modified version of a current training offering, we will try to accommodate that request whenever possible. Please let us know any specifics about your group's training needs as early as possible so we can develop training materials that are appropriate for your needs.
The training schedule is planned one month at a time to allow maximum flexibility and to allow us to address changes in training needs. On all campuses, the times and dates are subject to computer room availability. In general, offerings will usually rotate between the Clarkston, Decatur, Dunwoody, Alpharetta, and Newton campuses each month in order to provide a fair opportunity for participation on all campuses. This rotation is subject to computer room availability.
We also offer online instructor-led training via Wimba Classroom. Participants in our online training will receive an email when they register that includes the appropriate link and instructions for joining the session. For optimum experience we recommend a USB headset(note: OIT does not provide USB headsets to all employees-- you may need to work with your department head to purchase a headset) to fully participate in the audio portion of the training. However, you can also dial in to participate in the audio portion. There will be a 1800 number available after you enter the Wimba Classroom. Some online sessions are recorded and archived. These archived sessions may be made available to particpants or to the whole college.
We typically offer training Monday-Friday from 10a-Noon, 1p-3p, or 2p-4p. Occasionally we will offer evening classes and Saturday classes. If you have a special location, day, or time request please let us know.
It is important that participants use the online registration system to register for the desired classes. If you are unable to log into the system to register, please contact the GPC Service Desk 678-891-3460, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit http://www.gpc.edu/getmylogin to reset your password. Interested participants who are not registered may still attend a training course, but unregistered participants are not guaranteed a seat. In the event that a class fills up, seating preference will be given to registered participants (see also Class Cancellation Policy).
