[ARCHIVED] All Hands Training Day offers efficient path to provide 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. 10, Columbus Day, county offices will be closed to the public as staff participates in this training. County offices will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, Oct. 11. Law enforcement 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 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 Columbus 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:

1. Americans with Disabilities Act
2. Ethics (AB 1234)
3. Discrimination/Sexual Harassment (AB 1825)
4. Workplace Safety
5. Defensive Driving

Elective Training:
1. Active shooter
2. Continuity of Government/Continuity of Operations
