Frequently Asked Questions about HR Training
How do I register for classes?
Go to https://www.dallascounty.org/TrainingSchedule/. Follow the Online prompts to view the schedule and enroll. You can download detailed instructions for the automated enrollment system from the login screen.
Can I enroll in classes just by e-mailing Traininghr@dallascounty.org or email@example.com?
No. The only way to enroll is through the Online Training Enrollment System.
Can someone else enroll for me, or can my supervisor enroll me?
No. You need to set up your own training system account and enroll personally so the system can communicate with you directly about your class enrollments and automatically maintain a record of all the classes you complete.
An e-mail address is required to enroll. What if I don’t have an e-mail address?
Ask your supervisor to request an e-mail account for you so you can use it to enroll in training and receive messages directly from the training system about your classes.
What if I forget my OTES password?
There’s a link on the OTES login screen for that. Click on “I forgot my password”, follow directions, and the system will e-mail your password to you.
How can I cancel out of a class I am enrolled in?
From Reports at the top of the "Class Lookup" screen, select the appropriate report, either "Enrolled Classes", or "Stand-by Classes". Check the box in front of the class you want to cancel. Then click on "Cancel" at the bottom of the screen. You’ll immediately see an online message acknowledging your cancellation, and you’ll also receive an e-mail message.
Do I need management approval to enroll in a class?
You should always consult with your supervisor about training enrollment. Some departments have a standard process for supervisory approval of classes, and some do not. Ask your supervisor what the process is for your work group.
How do I know which classes are included in the required Management Development program?
A new Management program is in development and will be released October 2014.
Where are Human Resources classes held?
Human Resource sponsored classes are held at the Records Building, training room 634.
Can the HR Training Room in the Records Building be reserved by other departments?
