Training Required by SMU for Student Workers

Training Requirements for Student Workers

Are you hiring student workers in the summer months?

Did you know that student workers (both undergraduate and graduate) are required to complete two training tutorials upon employment?

The following tutorials are automatically assigned after student workers begin their first day of employment and their records are complete in my.SMU:

  • Data Security and Privacy (1 year refresh requirement)
  • SMU Program for the Protection of Minors:  Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse; per SMU Policy 7.26 (2 year “refresh” requirement)

Students are notified via email to their SMU email account that the training has been assigned.  The email contains a link to access the training with SMU’s single sign on (SSO).  Email reminders are sent every two weeks until the training is completed.

Students should complete these training assignments as soon as possible after beginning employment and  should be paid for the time required to complete the training.

If you supervise student workers, please ensure they are aware of the training requirement and that they have completed the training in a timely manner.
