Social media modules are offered to staff as part of HR’s People Matter series.

It’s recommended all staff who are using social media in their jobs take social media training.

Each of the courses aligns with at least one of these four outcomes:

  • Validate social media policy and procedure
  • Identify ways to use social media to listen and engage with the community
  • Use and evaluate social media tools
  • Plan and execute a successful social media strategy

Refer to the Staff Training Course Catalogue for course dates and to register.

Targeted, group training for your team or department can also be delivered by request.
