Monthly Ethics Training Reporting Obligations

You are required to submit training information EVERY month – even if no training was conducted during the reporting period.  In a case where no training was conducted, enter the number of active employees at your agency and enter the number zero ‘0’ in the applicable fields.

Required Aggregate Training Information

  • Number of employees– For each reporting period (i.e., January 2024) enter the number of active employees at your agency. Active employees include those individuals who are on your agency payroll.  Do not include those employees who have left state service.
  • Number of live CETC sessions conducted – Enter the number of live CETC sessions your agency conducted – this figure includes both instructor-led and remote live CETC sessions.
  • Number of employees who Completed Live CETC – Enter the total number of employees that completed a live CETC in the applicable reporting period.  DO NOT include those that were enrolled and did not attend.
  • Number of employees who completed the On-Demand CETC - either in the Statewide Learning Management System or other LMS.
  • Combined Total (Live CETC and On-Demand CETC) – This information is automatically calculated in the Training Application by adding the total number of employees that completed the live CETC to the total number of employees that completed the on-demand CETC. 

Reporting Due Dates
