After your professional training needs are approved, complete the course provider’s registration form (for downloadable forms by our most popular external course providers, see column on right). Have your supervisor sign it and then send it (preferably scanned) to Dept. 3.5 at email@example.com. Registrations must be submitted at least four weeks prior to the course date (unless the course provider specifies a different deadline). For seminars offered by the NRW Ministry of Interior, the registration period ends six weeks prior to the course. We will forward all necessary information to the Staff Council, take care of the payment modalities and register you with your desired course provider.
We cannot guarantee that your registration will be processed in time if you submit it shortly before the deadline!
If you register for a seminar offered by an external provider without consulting with the Personnel Development department first, there is no guarantee that the cost of the course will be covered by the University. In other words, you may be liable for the resulting expenses!
Course registrations are binding!
Your registration in external courses is binding. Therefore, we ask you to double check with your supervisor in advance as to whether you actually have the time to participate on the respective date and then firmly schedule the meeting in your time planner.
Most external providers charge steep fees for short-term cancellations.
If you have to cancel at short notice due to illness, please let us know as soon as possible (preferably via email at firstname.lastname@example.org). It does not suffice to simply notify the provider of your inability to attend.
