The FUNdamentals on ctcLink Training website

A couple weeks ago, we shared the ctcLink Student Center video, available on the ctcLink training site. Today, we’d like to point out another feature on the ctcLink Training website: FUNdamentals!

Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and other users at the FirstLink colleges (Tacoma and Spokane) are being encouraged to review the Fundamentals Training in their subject area as a prerequisite to any/all training activities. For everyone else, if you are curious about how the PeopleSoft software looks and works, Fundamentals is a good place to start. You’ll get a better understanding of the software, how to navigate, how to use the Help feature and the Search pages and much more.

So, if you are from TCC, SFCC or SCC and you haven’t already gone through the self-paced online Fundamentals, you know what to do! If you are from one of the other colleges or SBCTC and you won’t be using the new system for quite some time, but you’re curious about ctcLink and you just can’t wait, check out the ctcLink Training site and  click on one of the Fundamentals modules links at left. CS stands for Campus Solutions (Student/Academic), HCM is Human Capital Management (HR/Payroll) and FIN is for Finance. You can start there, or, even a step back as is suggested on the ctcLink Training homepage:

The web-based training provided on this site has been developed using Oracle’s User Productivity Kit (UPK). Although it is a very intuitive tool, new users will benefit from reviewing How to Use the UPK. Once you have a basic understanding of how to work with the UPK, you should next engage the Fundamentals course for your pillar (either CS, HCM, or FIN). If you aren’t sure which Fundamentals Course is for you, go with HCM.
