County Offices to Close Monday for Mandatory Training


The County of Humboldt will use an upcoming holiday as an opportunity to efficiently provide important training to employees on subjects like the Americans with Disabilities Act, ethics, discrimination and sexual harassment and more. On Monday, Oct. 12, Indigenous Peoples’ Day, county offices will be closed to the public as staff participates in this training. This will mark the fifth straight year of the mandatory training as county offices will resume normal business hours the following day on Tuesday, Oct. 13. Law enforcement, emergency operations, including the ongoing COVID-19 response, and other critical services will not be affected by this closure.

Even while the COVID-19 pandemic persists, there are several types of trainings that all county employees are required to undergo. However, it can be expensive and overly time-consuming to schedule enough training dates throughout the year to accommodate more than 2,000 county employees. The All Hands Training Day is an opportunity to get the majority of staff trained on one day, saving both time and public funds. In addition, county offices have historically been closed on Indigenous Peoples’ Day, and several other public agencies are closed on this day as well, including the US Post Offices as well as the Humboldt County Superior Court. By coordinating county office closures with this date the impact to members of the public should be minimal.

Below are the mandatory training sessions being planned for the All Hands Training Day:

  • Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Ethics (AB 1234)
  • Discrimination/Sexual Harassment (AB 1343 & SB 778)
  • Workplace Safety
  • Defensive Driving
  • Cyber Awareness

Elective Training:

  • Community Resilience Model (CRM)
  • Financial Literacy – Breaking Out of Poverty
  • UC Davis Anti-Racist Practice Webinar Series
  • Microsoft Excel Training
  • Microsoft Office Training
