Orientation and Training

It is required that all instructors be trained prior to using the equipment in class. After receiving confirmation of room assignment, fill out the training request form to arrange an appointment for your training. Please call at least two days before your scheduled class. Please make arrangements for any TA's who will assist your setups to attend this training. The electronic classrooms contain delicate and expensive equipment that must be treated with care to maintain the reliability required of a classroom. See the Instructor Guidelines for complete information.
