Mandatory Training

CNM is also committed to ensuring that all employees complete mandatory training in accordance with the requirements of their position, demonstrating ethical employment practice.

Mandatory training is defined as training that is deemed essential for the safe and efficient functioning of the organization and the safety, wellbeing and effectiveness of individual members of faculty and staff. 

Please print these instructions or follow the directions you received during your Human Resources orientation to register for all mandatory trainings.

Mandatory trainings include:

  • Accurately Approving Employee Time Sheets (AET) is a mandatory training requirement for any employee at CNM responsible for approving timesheets in myCNM.
  • Bloodborne Pathogens (BBP)
    • BBP training is only required of Operation and Security staff and Health, Wellness and Public Safety faculty and staff.  BBP training is required annually.
  • CNM Campus Safety and Emergency Response
  • Hazard Communication Standard
  • Information Security
  • Preventing Discrimination and Sexual Violence: Title IX and the SaVE Act
  • Unlawful Harassment Prevention for Higher Education Staff
  • NSC Defensive Driving Course 9th Edition
    • Due to the high costs for Defensive Driving training and certificates, a request for a Defensive Driving code must be accompanied with an email from your supervisor, indicating that you are required to drive a CNM vehicle to complete your job duties.
    • Defensive Driving codes that aren’t used within five days will be assigned to another employee.
    • The training must be completed once every three years if you use CNM vehicles.

Supervisors use the Tracking Mandatory Training form to verify completion of trainings. Once complete, this form should be forwarded to HR to be kept in your employee’s file.
