CATTS to change stripes
The computer-based training system used by the university, UMA, and the
medical center will get an update to enhance security and make it
easier to use.
The Computerized Annual Training and Tracking System (CATTS), a
mainstay program for annually updating and testing employee knowledge,
tracking employee competencies, to include classroom training and
maintaining licenses/certifications, will get a new web face when
version 5 is activated Aug. 1.
The changes shouldn’t cause any downtime, said Latonia Allen,
information resource consultant with the medical center’s Human
Resources. Allen said the new version’s drop-down navigation menus will
make it easier for employees to find their assigned lessons.
Version 5 will improve security for administrative users. This update
will also present a revised login screen and a new learners’ homepage
with added features.

their annual, mandatory online training sessions. CATTS modules provide
information and test employees’ knowledge on designated topics. Modules
and/or lessons are based on the employee’s role in the organization,
but some topics are mandatory for all employees. The system is also a
means of tracking employees’ competencies, licensure/certification
expiration dates, training to include both internal and external
