What you need to know
At Sandia, all employees and contractors must take certain corporate-required training courses, usually on a one-time, annual, biannual, or triannual basis. In addition, employees and contractors in certain positions may be required to complete job-specific training.
Your corporate-required training courses are generally auto-loaded into your individual Training, Education, and Development System (TEDS) notebook.
Corporate-required training at Sandia applies to all employees and contractors. In addition, there may be job-specific required training. For more guidance on training at Sandia and what qualifies as a training activity, view the HR Solutions Training Activities article.
Corporate-required training at Sandia focuses on promoting a safe, secure, and healthy working environment for all of our personnel, in addition to facilitating compliance with regulatory training requirements and Sandia policies.
Employees and contractors may be required to complete job-specific training, which is determined by your manager at the local level. You should talk with your manager about what type of job-specific training is right for you.
You may also check with your training coordinator for information.
