Required Training Courses

These training courses must be completed by all faculty and staff, and by any student who is hired as an employee (GSR, GSI, Reader, Tutor, etc.) at least once before coming to campus. A certificate will be issued upon completion. 

Daily Symptom Screener

Everyone must complete the Daily Symptom Screener every day that you will be coming to campus.

Simply say "no" to the CalNet choice when prompted, and then enter your information.  if you have any issues with the Daily Symptom screener, please contact Laura Slakey (mso@stat.berkeley.edu).
