Training now allows self-enrollment

An improved registration system for OnePurdue training has brought with it better security and other enhancements, said Mary Ann Ferkis, the student systems training lead.

Faculty and staff members now can register themselves online for all instructor-led and self-paced training courses instead of needing a training coordinator to enroll them.

The new self-registration process (used for Banner and other OnePurdue systems training) also now includes more comprehensive reporting features.

The impetus for the change was the University’s move toward LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) login authentication. Purdue has been implementing LDAP (basically a set of rules and Internet standards used to access information) at West Lafayette over the past few years.

“Bringing the training registration process in line with that technology allows us to use the same higher level of security as the rest of the campus,” Ferkis said. “Enrolling yourself in Banner training is easy, too.”

To register:

1.Go to registration login page: (A link to detailed registration instructions is on this screen.)

2. Log in with your Purdue Career Account username and password.

3. Click on the Student Systems link in the three options at left. (Almost all courses are online and self-paced, so no dates or times are shown for these.) If you already are enrolled in any courses, they will appear under Current Enrollments.

4. Choose a category from the list on the next screen.

a. If you have never had any training in the new student systems, you first will need to learn some basics about Banner navigation and viewing student data. Click on the BASIC Skills link. Everyone should take BANNAV 100, 150 and SOV 100. Depending on your role, you also need to complete either ENRLSV 210 or STUVW 210. (BANNAV 150 is currently under development.)

b. If you’ve already taken these introductory prerequisites, select a different category (e.g., Admissions, Bursar, Financial Aid) on the previous screen.

“We think the faculty and staff will find this self-registration system much easier and more accessible,” Ferkis said.
