Required Training

Free Digital Learning Resources

The following are free recorded digital sessions we are gathering to support your effectiveness, performance success, learning, and well-being during these challenging pandemic times. In addition, upcoming free digital resources are regularly being added to the Learning and Development Calendar.

How do I cancel a course I have already signed up for?

Please email us at landd@uoguelph.ca or call extension 56800 to cancel a course.

Is there a penalty for cancelling?

For non technical programs, a non-attendance fee or a cancellation fee will apply for sessions that are not attended or cancellations received with less than two business days notice prior to the session. For technical programs the full registration fee will be charged for sessions that are not attended or for cancellations received with less than five business days notice prior to the session when we are not able to fill your spot.

Is there a cost for these programs?

There are fees associated with some of our technical programs as they are offered on a cost-recovery basis due to the necessity to engage professional technology instructors.

How can I find out which courses I registered to participate in?

You will have received a confirmation email for each program for which you have registered. Please be sure to enter all Learning & Development dates in your calendar. A reminder notice will be emailed to you before each program begins. You can also email landd@uoguelph.ca to ask us for a list of the programs for which you have registered.

Do I have to sign up for the whole series of programs or can I just sign up for one?

Some programs require your participation in all sessions and others allow you to register for a single session. Please see the program description on the event calendar for more information.

Who is eligible for learning and development opportunities?
