Important Information about the Online Training

  • Please keep in mind that there is a “Mastery Test” at the conclusion of each training. A score of at least 70% must be achieved in order to receive credit for the course. Should you receive a score lower than 70%, you will need to re-take the course; however, the program not allow that particular course to be re-taken for 30 calendar days.
  • It is very important that you do the following at the completion of each course:
    • Complete the course evaluation.
    • Print a certificate of completion.

    If the certificate is not printed and the evaluation is left incomplete, credit for taking the course will not be reflected in your Training History at the end of each quarter. While there is instruction that directs you to send the certificate to Human Resources, these certificates are to be kept for your own records or within your departmental records. Please do not forward certificates of completion to Human Resources.
  • The State will provide Human Resources with a quarterly report that includes the names of UNLV employees who have successfully completed each of the six (6) required courses. This report will be generated from your UNLV email address, which is why it is important that your UNLV email address be listed in your NVeLEARN profile.
  • The courses that have been completed will be added to the employee’s Training History at the end of each quarter. This means that if you successfully completed one or more of the required courses, they will not be visible in your Training History immediately. This is why you will want to keep copies of your certificates of completion for your records.
