Who should attend a training class?

University personnel with budget oversight and individuals who complete and process purchase requisitions should attend Oracle training.

Why attend training?

Financial information for departments, grants and restricted gifts is obtained directly from the Oracle application, on a real-time basis. Access to Oracle applications will only be granted after the individuals attend the appropriate training class(es).
