The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is pleased to announce that our University Technology Training Center (UTTC) courses, formerly offered for a fee, will now be available to current faculty, staff, and students at no charge.

Professional development opportunities such as this can help to build skills and create efficiencies affecting academic and professional success and advancement for the individual and the University community as whole.

Please note: UTTC's resources are limited. You are encouraged to register only for courses you are committed to attending. If there is a change in your schedule, a cancellation notice is required 48 hours prior to the start of the course so that the seat may be filled with someone on the waiting list.
In addition, departments, colleges, and other campus organizations may arrange custom training for current University of Minnesota students, faculty, and staff at no charge.
UTTC can customize any of our current short course offerings to meet the specific needs of your group. Or, we can partner with you to co-deliver training.
