Mandatory Trainings for Pittsgrove Twp. Employees
The New Jersey Department of Education requires annual training on topics for all school employees. To comply with this regulation, the Pittsgrove Township School District has contracted with Global Compliance Network (GCN), an internet-based training program. After independently completing a training, an electronic record of that goes to an online database to verify the employee’s work. After all training programs have been completed, staff members can print a single page certificate that verifies the employees completion of the programs.
