The process involves the instructor, HR Learning & Talent Development (LTD), and the employee. There are three phases:

  1. Instructor requests a new course using the online Course Setup form (link below).  LTD will create the course in GEMS.
  2. Instructor requests session(s) be created using the Course Session Setup form (link below). LTD will create the sessions.
  3. Employees enroll; Instructor conducts training; LTD closes session.
