Assigning Certifications to Employees

One of the most cumbersome aspects of labor management is keeping track of all your employees’ on-boarding, like W2s, training certificates, and drug screens. If you’re using TimeForge Human Resources, that’s one less thing you’ve got to worry about. You can take all of those documents that are cluttering the desk in your office and store them digitally on TimeForge.

In some industries, training certificates can be mandatory. For instance, you shouldn’t have a lifeguard on duty who doesn’t have a valid first aide certification. With TimeForge, you can not only keep all of this information in the same safe, convienent, and easy-to-use place, you can also enforce these training certificates when you create an employee schedule. In other words, if an employee doesn’t have a valid certification, they can’t be scheduled.

Adding work and training certificates is easy, and here is how it’s done.

Navigate to the “Employees” page.

  • Log in
  • Hover over the “Employees” tab
  • Click “Employees.”

Locate the employee who needs a training certificate.

Locate the employee to whom you would like to assign certifications and click the blue “Edit” link on the right side of the employee’s row.

Click on the “Human Resources” tab.

Locate the “Certification” box.

After clicking on the “Human Resources” tab, scroll down and locate the box titled “Certification.

Choose the type of certification you would like to apply to the employee.

Click on the “Certification Type” drop down menu and choose the appropriate certification.

Note: Certifications must be set up at the Corporate Level.

Fill in the remaining information.

After choosing the appropriate certification to apply to your employee, fill out other necessary information such as the date the certification was received, the date it expires, the date it should be renewed, and the score and any notes (if applicable).

If you click on the document icon outlined in red, you can upload a copy of the work or training certificate and store it in TimeForge. This way, you can always access and have proof of the training certificate.
