In addition to courses offered through the HR Learning Catalogue, the Records Management and Privacy Office offers three online courses addressing access to information, protection of privacy, and records management. These courses will be added to your employee Training Record (through Human Rights and Equity’s Training Manager platform).

You can take these courses as many times as you wish. Work through them at your own pace and then take the final quiz. Your answers and final score are not recorded; only completion of the course is recorded in your Training Record. You will receive a certificate of completion for each course.

Faculty and staff involved in research should consider taking the Foundations of Privacy in Research course available through the Vice-Principal Research office.
