UT Policy HR0128 strongly encouraging every employee at the University of Tennessee to complete a minimum of 32 hours of job and career-related training per calendar year. HRO128 applies to all regular employees, however, the number of training hours for part-time employees may be prorated.
Training should relate to your present position or enhance your skills for future job growth. With supervisor's approval, classes both within and outside the university, conferences, and seminars will count toward your 32 hours.
Employees will notify their supervisor that they intend to submit an external training for credit through K@TE (pronounced "Kate"), the University of Tennessee’s new learning management system. Training credits in K@TE are automatically transferred into IRIS, which is the official record of training for University employees.
