    Morning Session — AB 1825 Harassment Prevention & Bystander Compliance Training (AM Session)

    Cost: $125/attendee (or $100/attendee for groups of 10 or more from the same organization)

    The morning session consists of the AB 1825 legally-compliant Harassment Prevention Training that is suitable for all employees of your organization, including managers, supervisors, and

    non-supervisory personnel. In addition, this training includes an additional component on Bystander Training, as authorized by SB 1300. All attendees will receive proof of completion.

    Note for agencies that will be signing up 10 or more attendees from the same organization: To take advantage of the discounted rate of 25% off ($100/attendee), please contact us at info@CalGovHR.org to obtain a discount code, and select the "10 Or More From Same Agency" option to register all attendees in one transaction (add each attendee as "guests").

    For agencies that are signing up less than 10 attendees, you can still register all attendees in one transaction (add each attendee as "guests").

    “Train-the-Trainer” Training for HR Professionals (PM Session)

    Cost: $795/Member or $995/Non-Member (includes AM California-Compliant Harassment Prevention Training)

    The afternoon session (1 PM — 4 PM) is designed specifically for human resources professionals who meet the requirements under 2 CCR § 11024(a)(9) (see above for trainer eligibility requirements) to become a trainer to provide Harassment Prevention Training for their organization. The Train-the-Trainer session includes additional information on how to design and deliver an effective training curriculum to meet the requirements under Govt’ Code § 12950.1 and 2 CCR § 11024, tips for trainers, in-depth content review, teaching practice exercise (in group assignment), and instructors’ feedback of teaching exercise.

    In addition, all attendees will receive an “instructor’s toolkit", including: PowerPoint training set, sample EEO policy, workplace harassment prevention guide, pamphlet, and certificate of completion.

    Update: Although there is a pending SB 778 bill that would seek to clarify certain provisions of SB 1343, at the present time, SB 1343 remains current law, and employers must still comply with the training requirements and deadlines imposed by SB 1343. Therefore, while SB 778 may delay the implementation of harassment prevention training for employers who have provided the training to employees after January 1, 2018 (the proposed law is that they would not be required to provide refresher training and education until after December 31, 2020), CalGovHR is nevertheless providing this Harassment Prevention and Train-the-Trainer training to help agencies prepare for the training requirements under SB 1343.

Our Institute classes are open to all HR professionals, including those working at public agencies throughout the state of California beyond.
