Sexual Harassment Prevention for Supervisors and Academics (AB1825-compliant) is available both online and in person. California law (AB1825), which went into effect in 2005, requires employers to provide all supervisors at least two hours of mandatory training in sexual harassment prevention every two years. The most recent online course, launched in September 2007 by the Office of the President, provides individualized links to those required to complete the course. Individual department-level instructor-led courses can also be scheduled by contacting the OEOD at 949-824-5594. The Sexual Harassment Officer also offers general training sessions open to all UCI supervisors and academics. Registration for these sessions is available through UC Learning Center.
