To view/download a completed training, select “My Profile” on the top right of the page. A drop-down list will appear, and you’ll want to select “Learning Transcript”. All training initiated within WSU’s Training website, in process or completed, will be shown. Choose the training course desired, click on the icon under “Actions”, and select print. A copy of the certificate will pop up. Click on the print icon in the top right corner to print the certificate. Please note that by changing the print destination to “Save as PDF” a digital copy of the certificate can be downloaded. The downloaded certificate can then be attached to an email. The entire learning transcript can also be printed (or saved to PDF for a digital copy) if that is preferred.

To note, the training required for all WSU employees, per SPPM 2.18, is included in the Voiland College mandatory training.

Supervisors can verify their worker’s training either by looking at completed training certificates, provided by their employees via paper or digital formats, or via reports their unit’s administrators are able to access within the WSU’s Training System, also known as SkillSoft HRS Learning Management Portal.
