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.
