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 [email protected] (pronounced "Kate"), the University of Tennessee’s new learning management system. Training credits in [email protected] are automatically transferred into IRIS, which is the official record of training for University employees.
- How do I submit training for my record?
When a training is launched via [email protected] or you have attended a training which required you to register in [email protected], your training credit will automatically be recorded and will be transferred into your official record in IRIS without you having to do anything further.
For trainings taken outside of [email protected] or registration in [email protected] was not required, you will need to submit for External Training Credit.
- How do I access my training history?
Employees may access training history in the My IRIS Web Portal and click Employee Self-Service (ESS) tab, then click Personal Information, then click My HR 128 Training History. A new window will display your training history that has been recorded in IRIS. If you have difficulty displaying My HR128 Training History, check to make sure you do not have pop-ups blocked on your browser.
If you have questions about the content on your report, please contact Human Resources. For questions about accessing ESS or any My IRIS Web function, please contact the IRIS Helpdesk at [email protected]
