If you prefer you can access the training program through the followng link: http://training.newmedialearning.com/psh/coastalbendc/index.htm The user friendly course requires approximately 60-90 minutes to complete. The Personnel Services Office staff recommends that you set aside the time in its entirety so you can complete the course in one sitting. Upon completion of the reading section you will be required to take a 15 question mastery test. In order to pass the test, you must score 80 or higher. If your score is lower than 80, you will need to retake the test. You will be prompted to print a certificate of completion and we ask that you submit a copy of the certificate to the Personnel Services Office. The certificate will be placed in your personnel file. Please note, an e-mail will be sent to the HR office with the person’s name, date of completion, and score so a comparison can be made with the certificate that has been submitted. Sexual harassment of employees or students at Coastal Bend College is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Sexual harassment is defined as any unwelcome sexual advance, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal, physical or suggestive conduct of a sexual nature when:
*Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly as a term or condition of an individual's employment, advancement, or academic advancement; and/ or *Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as a basis for employment decisions or academic decisions affecting such individual; and/or *Such conduct has the effect of substantially interfering with an individual's work or academic performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or demeaning employment or educational environment.
