Paula Varnes Fussell, Vice President for Human Resource Services

The University of Florida is committed to creating an environment where all faculty, staff, and students feel safe and respected.  To support this commitment, all UF employees are expected to complete the “Preventing Harassment” online training (course code: GET802) within 30 days of hire and every two years after the initial completion. *To assist in tracking this requirement, UF will be assigning this training to employees through myTraining, the university’s training management system.

The assignment will take place in April 2016. Faculty and staff who have never completed the online training, or have not within the last two years, will receive an email notification with a direct link to complete the course.  Those who have completed the harassment prevention training within the past two years will not receive an email, and no action will be required at the time of this assignment. On an ongoing basis, employees will receive automated email reminders to complete the training in advance of the expiration of the two-year timeframe since their last completion.

The “Preventing Harassment” online training can be accessed at any time through myUFL by navigating to My Self Service > Training and Development > myTraining and typing GET802 or Preventing Harassment in the activity search box at the top left corner of the learner “dashboard” or homepage.  To view a brief instruction guide on registering for and launching the course, please visit:  To access the course now, visit

This online training provides important guidelines and reminders for maintaining an environment that is safe and supportive for all students, faculty, and staff.  By assigning the training through myTraining, UF can help remind employees of completion deadlines and keep them notified of any updates to the training.

If you need technical assistance or have questions about the myTraining system, please contact or call (352) 392-4626.

* Please note that this is separate from the training for responsible employees required under Title IX.
