The County of Humboldt will again use an upcoming holiday to provide vital training for employees on subjects like the Americans with Disabilities Act, ethics, discrimination and sexual harassment among other topics. On Monday, Oct. 11, Indigenous Peoples’ Day, county offices will be closed to the public as staff participates in this virtual training. This is the sixth straight year of the mandatory training day as county offices will resume normal business hours the following day on Tuesday, Oct. 12. Law enforcement, emergency operations, including the ongoing COVID-19 response, and other critical services will not be affected by this closure.
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.
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
- COVID-19 Training
- FEMA Incident Command Training
- Diversity. Equity, and Inclusion
- Mentorship & Career Development
- Microsoft Excel Training
- Microsoft Office Training
- Stress and Wellness Management
- Community Resiliency Model training
- Management and Leadership Development
