Foundational Skills-Required Training

Foundational Skill Training for Employees

The foundational skills trainings are required of all UC Berkeley employees, no matter what your role. Some are completed on a recurring basis and others are completed only once.  The content of these courses supports our workplace community values and ensures legal compliance. For those who participate in the Achieve Together performance program, anyone not current with their foundational skills training requirements will receive a "Needs Attention" rating for the Achievement Criteria of Job Mastery in their spring Achieve Together check-in.

All foundational skills-required training can be accessed through the UC Learning Centerby searching for the course title or code. We also have included direct links for each course listed here. You can learn more about how to use the UCLC on our UC Learning Center (LMS) page.

Check on your completion of any courses in the UC Learning Center by going to your Required Training, then checking that the “Assignment Status” is listed as “Acquired.” Here’s how to check on the Assignment Status and Start your courses that are due.

Managers can log into the manager dashboard in the UC Learning Center to view their employees’ completion status. If you’re having trouble navigating the dashboard, please refer to this step-by-step guide on how to access your employees’ completions online or via PDF.
