Fall PAR Training Scheduled for January, Online Training also Available - 01/3/13

Instructor-led training for the Fall 2012-13 Personnel Activity Report (PAR) is open for enrollment. The class, “BPARS 200” is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. until 5:00 p.m., Thursday, January 10, in Room 1142 of Lawson Computer Science Building (LWSN).

Due to the success of the Web-based PARs training (“BPARS 100”), only one live, instructor-led session is being offered this semester. The presentation will be live-streamed via Adobe Connect for staff who are unable to attend in person.

The first half-hour of the class is geared for staff who have attended previous PARs training and focuses on important reminders and a brief summary. After a short break, the information becomes more detailed for attendees looking for a refresher and for those new to PARs.

To ensure a seat in the instructor-led class, participants must enroll; there is no separate registration for the first half hour. Attendees who plan to attend the presentation remotely via Adobe Connect also must register.

To register:

    1. Click BPARS 200—Personnel Activity Report to open the Training Registration site.
    2. Click “Add to Cart.”
    3. Click “Checkout.”
    4. Sign in with Purdue career account and password.
    5. Confirm that the registration information that displays is correct and click “Submit.”
    6. Verify that the section that displays is correct and click “Process Registration” to complete the registration.

Instructions for connecting to Adobe Connect will be emailed to attendees prior to the class.

PARs will be distributed during the session, and business managers are asked to sign for the PARs for their area. Participants who attend the training via Adobe Connect must have a business manager come to the training in LWSN 1142 to collect their PARs. PARs for regional campuses will be sent via FedEx.
