March 31 Quarterly Harassment Prevention Education Deadline is Approaching (March 2, 2017)

March 02, 2017

Online harassment prevention education (HP - formerly Sexual Harassment Prevention Education or SHPE) course completions through Wed., Mar. 1, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. have been uploaded to the Compliance & Qualifications (CQ) system.

We are currently at 99.6% compliance campus-wide, with over 220 individuals who are due to complete an approved HP course before the quarterly deadline of Mar. 31. 

To reach full compliance by the deadline, please run the CQ report Harassment Prevention Compliance Individual Deadlines within the Quarter for your unit and strongly encourage affected employees to complete an approved course ASAP and no later than Thur., Mar. 30.  For more detailed information, see EOD’s website.

NEW UPLOAD SCHEDULEEOD will upload online course completions after 3:00 p.m. each university business day throughout the year.  Based on this schedule of uploads and CQ refreshes, completions will be visible in CQ as follows:

Additional Reminders:

  1. Please direct your employees to sign up for an online or instructor-led course through Self Service. Instructions are available on EOD’s website.
  1. The online HP course does not generate a certificate of completion.
  1. Most employees receive a preliminary confirmation email from after completing an online course.  Due to email account configuration and/or spam filters, this email may be delivered to the Junk folder instead of the Inbox.
  1. You can check whether an employee’s online course completion has been uploaded and refreshed in CQ by running one of the following reports:
    1. Brightline, Clarity & Skillsoft by Employee (in HR Training Reports)
    2. Harassment Prevention Compliance Due this Quarter (in Compliance & Qualifications)
  1. HP extension requests must be sent to EOD by a senior HR leadership representative (or associate dean for faculty) no later than Wed., Mar. 22. HP extension requests may be considered for persons on an extended leave (e.g., extended military, FMLA, or unpaid leave).


Thank you as always for your continued support and assistance.
