I cannot login with my user ID and password. Am I doing something incorrect?
Are there any restrictions to registering?
- Our courses are open and free to all staff at UWaterloo, including temporary/contract employees.
- Space is a limitation, though, as our class sizes are limited. Due to the limited course availability, it is highly recommended that you register early.
- Employees of the Affiliated and Federated Institutions of Waterloo are subject to a departmental attendance fee of $50.
- Casual employees and student employees, typically, cannot enroll in OHD courses.
I deleted my e-mail confirmation. How can I tell what I am registered in?
- You can view your enrollment status in myHRinfo. Simply select Training summary in the Learning and Development menu to review completed and enrolled courses.
How do I remove myself from a course?
- Simply reply to your original registration confirmation informing us that you cannot attend. If you do not have this e-mail any further, please contact email@example.com with your course information to cancel your registration. You will receive a cancelation notice via e-mail.
- Cancellation policy: We require 72 hours notice for cancellation (with the exception of family emergencies, illness, inclement weather). A departmental charge of $50 will be invoiced if you cancel less than 72 hours prior to a course, or do not show up for a class for which you are registered. If you cannot make it to a session, please give at least 72 hours notice to avoid this charge.
- NOTE: Unable to attend due to being ill automatically waives this fee. Please advise us if this is the case.
Why does my supervisor also receive a copy of my registration?
- Your supervisor receives a copy of your registration to ensure they are aware of Organizational & Human Development's (OHD's) policies and procedures regarding training, such as the departmental charge of $50 if you cancel less than 72 hours prior to a course, or do not show up for a class for which you are registered. If you cannot make it to a session, please give at least 72 hours notice to avoid this charge.
- Note: Family emergencies, illness, or inclement weather override this policy. Simply let us know if you cannot make or missed a course due to these reasons.
A copy of my e-mail confirmation go to someone who isn't my supervisor. How can this error be fixed?
- Sounds like the "report's to" info hasn't been correctly entered/updated in MyHRinfo. Notifications are automated and based on this information. This issue could be be a variety of reasons: Positions are sometimes authorized by higher levels in an department, and it is taking those people as the reporting structure (higher managers and directors, instead of a person's supervisor). As well, if the reporting structure has not been properly reported to HR, then it defaults to the department head or higher manager. Or, a new employee hasn’t been listed as the supervisor. At times, this might be a delay based on time to update the profiles.
- As such this is a HR matter. I would suggest that you and/or your manager contact your Human Resources Parnters to have this information updated. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and your department.
I am working here on a temporary contract, am I eligible to take the OHD training courses? Is there a cost?
- Yes, you may attended. There is no cost for temporary/contact employees to attend OHD's regular programs and workshops.
- Exceptions include our Leadership Development program where specific criteria apply.
Can a member of the Affiliated and Federated Institutions of Waterloo attend training courses? What is the cost?
- Yes, you may attend. Please note: Employees of the Affiliated and Federated Institutions of Waterloo are subject to a $50.00 departmental charge for each session you would like to attend.
- We will issue an invoice within 30 days after confirmed course completion.
Where can I find more information on the University of Waterloo's policy on training and development?
- This specific information can be found on the University's Policies, Procedures & Guidelines website under Policy 18, listed under Training and Development.
I have to leave my workshop early. Do I need to attend the whole session?
- Yes, we do require all our attendees to stay for the duration of the workshops to obtain credit. We appreciate that people are busy. If you cannot attend the entire course we ask that you excuse yourself from registration prior to the start of the course. Please review our policies on canceling and how to remove yourself from a course.
