CSUSM is committed to pursuing its academic mission in compliance with established federal, state, and local rules, regulations, policies and procedures. By ensuring compliance, not only does our institution become a safer place to work and learn, but we also lower the risk of being financial penalized, including loss of funding for important research opportunities.
Many of the university's compliance trainings are required for all employees, while some are dependent upon an employee's responsibility and access.

The CSU requires that faculty, staff, and student employees take certain courses to comply with state and university requirements that are driven by federal law, state law or CSU policy. A majority of these courses will be automatically assigned and are required at various intervals listed above.
For further information regarding these laws and policies that make these courses required, we encourage you to learn more by visiting the Chancellor's Office website CSYOU Compliance Training for CSU Employees.
Some courses feature a “RESUME” feature. Once the training has started again, simply select “RESUME” to pick up where you left off.
Some courses have a navigation panel that you can use to jump forward or back as needed. Note the name of the last sections you completed and, when you reopen the training, click on the section directly following that.
For other courses, your only option is to click forward through the pages or videos.
All completed activities are available via the transcript tile on the dashboard.
In your transcripts, click the certificate icon next to your training course in order to print your certificate of completion.
Change the drop-down option near the top of the window from “Date Range” to “ALL” to see all completed activities.
If you recently completed the training, please allow at least 30-60 minutes for your completion data to be processed and displayed in your transcript.
