All current and new faculty, staff, and student employees are required to take annual training on a range of  topics based on employment status, work environment, and/or job responsibilities.  Specific training assignments will be communicated to the employee via email from UA LMS or by their supervisor.

Effective January 1, 2020 mandatory compliance training for all UA employees moved to a calendar year cycle. All employees are required to complete their annual training during a 60-day window, regardless of when they were required to complete training in prior years.


UA LMS is the learning management system used to provide required compliance training to University employees and guests. Faculty, staff, and student employees will be notified of required training through their supervisors and by email notification sent to the employees’ myBama (or Crimson) email address. New hires will be assigned the required training and receive the email notification within two weeks of their hire date once they’ve been added to the payroll system.
