Compliance Training 

FIT employees are required to take online compliance-related trainings based on an employees responsibilities or office functions.

The aim of these trainings is to provide FIT employees with a good review of our compliance principles and an in-depth introduction to laws and regulations that impact the way we do business.  As part of the online training, employees will experience an interactive test to help solidify their understanding of the laws and regulations, as well as FIT's policies so that they are equipped to conduct business in compliance with the law and FIT's policies.

For additional information, please contact Griselda Gonzalez, Director of Policy & Compliance.

FIT offers two affirmative action training sessions on-line:
1.    Preventing Sexual Harassment
2.    Preventing Employment Discrimination

Both sessions take about 60 to 90 minutes each to complete, and both are very user-friendly.  You can complete them in intervals; if you need to leave the program before you have finished, you can bookmark your location by pressing Ctrl+D (Cmd+D for Macintosh).

As you know, federal guidelines require that all government employees participate in these sessions once a year.  Please complete each training session by the last day of your anniversary date-of-hire month (e.g. If your hire date is November 15th, you would complete the training by November 30th).
