Now that Purdue staff are beginning to take the first OnePurdue training courses, the Training Team has begun fielding many questions from the University community. To help communicate this information to as many as possible, a page of frequently asked questions about training has been set up on the OnePurdue Web site here: http://www.purdue.edu/onepurdue/faq/training_questions.shtml. Here are a few of the most common ones:
Q: Who should I contact for help with OnePurdue training questions?
A: Supervisors and employees should contact their area’s OnePurdue training coordinator. A roster of them can be found on the OnePurdue Training page.
Training coordinators should send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (765) 49-46000.
Q: How were OnePurdue training course assignments determined?
A: The OnePurdue Training Team matched a combination of OnePurdue roles and department numbers to course content in order to identify the participants for each course. Please refer to a document titled “Course Selection Matrix” for more details. It can be found on the OnePurdue Training page.
Q: Where can I find the OnePurdue Course Catalog?
A: The current working version is published on OnePurdue’s Training page.
Q: How long will I have to complete their online training courses? Will I be expected to finish them within a particular amount of time?
A: The first overview courses will be prerequisites to the later hands-on classes, so people will need to finish them prior to attending the more detailed instructor-led and online classes. Of course, everyone will need to complete all their training prior to receiving access to the new OnePurdue systems.
Q: What if I have a question about role assignments?
A: The OnePurdue Financial Management and Human Resources Advisory Committees worked with the project team to assign current University positions to new OnePurdue/SAP roles. Advisory committee members closely coordinated this effort with Purdue leaders and managers in the affected areas. These were an initial role assignments, based on what is known about the OnePurdue systems today. It was made to enable fundamental business functions and system security needs. Any changes in role assignments must be coordinated through the appropriate advisory committee — either finance or human resources — and communicated to the OnePurdue Training Team.
Anyone who needs help with role assignments should inform their supervisor, who can take the question to the appropriate human resource or finance support channels, often your departmental business office. If you are unsure where to take your question, contact your area's OnePurdue training coordinator, who will help direct you to the HR or financial support. (Lists of training coordinators can be found on the OnePurdue Training page). Providing the following information will be helpful: your department, position title, name of the person assigned to the training or role in question, supervisor's name and the training or role to be addressed.
Q: How can I find out more about the specific courses?
A: The most up-to-date information about OnePurdue training courses — including what is currently available — will always be on the Training page of the project’s Web site. This page is updated often, so check back daily for new information.
