Department Training Liaisons FAQ

PDS Performance & Development Solutions

Q1: What are some effective ways to promote training?
A1: Marketing messages, such as monthly newsletters and information on upcoming seminars, are frequently sent to Training Liaisons by PDS. It is important to forward on these training opportunities to all staff members and management teams.

Q2: How do I enroll employees in PDS training courses?
A2: Employees must enroll for classes through the State's Learning Management System (LMS) and obtain the appropriate approvals. Training Liaisons will have the ability to assist employees in registering for classes through the LMS.

Q3: How do I cancel employees from PDS training courses?
A3: Please send an email notice to PDS@iowa.gov when you need to cancel an employee from a course. Due to financial commitments made by PDS in order to run courses, PDS is unable to allow Training Liaisons to cancel employees directly from IITS. For more information on canceling employees, please see the PDS Course Cancellation Policy.

Q4: What is the Learning Management System (LMS)?
A4: It is a statewide system designed to track course enrollments and cancellations, and helps generate billings. All Training Liaisons should have access to the State's LMS. If you do not currently have access, please contact PDS pds@iowa.gov
