Kronos Web-Based Training (WBT) for Payroll Managers and Timekeepers will be available to campus on Tuesday, February 18 via the UCSB Learning Center

Key objectives include:

  • Provide training on basic Kronos elements, system configuration, and payroll processes.
  • Create modular training material that is easy to support based on business needs.
  • Make training available on-demand.
  • Ensure training compliance accountability.

We have created three web-based courses that provide a comprehensive view of Kronos configuration, actions, and processes that campus Payroll Managers and Timekeepers will need to know in order to fulfill their role within the application. Through a combination of slides, videos, interactions, and quizzes, each course outlines and demonstrates key activities and configuration within the Kronos application. A summary of each course is listed below:
