TrainingTo support the UCF Financials’ training requirements, Financials Support Services developed a comprehensive training program that includes both online courses (available through Webcourses@UCF) and instructor-led training courses.
Financials training is required before a user is granted access to the UCF Financials system. The online courses, which are prerequisites for accessing the Financials system and for the instructor-led training courses, are available to a broad group of employees. These employees perform such tasks as viewing budgets, preparing requisitions, and checking the status of purchase orders. For employees who use the Financials system more intensively, instructor-led courses are available. Every six months FSS publishes a new schedule of upcoming instructor-led courses.
Additional course offerings, in both online and instructor-led varieties, will be developed in response to future upgrades and additions to the UCF Financials system.
