Supervisor Training 

Human Resources’ six module Supervisor Training Series has been streamlined and will be offered again in 2015. It is expected that all supervisors at Michigan Tech complete the now three part series. If you have previously completed one or more of these sessions, you will not need to retake the session. All supervisors will receive an individual letter from Human resources in December 2014 regarding which session(s) they need to complete. 

If you are not a supervisor, but are interested in attending one of the sessions, you are welcome to register and attend.
