Skillsoft is more than just compliance training.

Skillsoft hosts thousands of online courses including required training, custom courses, instructor-led training (ILT) registrations, as well as online books and videos covering the latest professional topics.

There are two courses required for all faculty and staff on all campuses, Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct (System and CU Boulder, CU Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus, and CU Colorado Springs) and Information Security Awareness. Other training may be required depending on your role or department. Check the CU Training Matrix for more information.
