In-depth Trainings

In-depth trainings are a great way to dig in to complex, job-specific tasks. Courses listed on this page are arranged by employee category and are all completed using Canvas.

These trainings are self-paced and most allow you to pause at certain points and continue at a later time so you don't need to complete the course in one sitting. You can also revisit content in these courses even after you’ve completed them.

Additional Resources

ctcLink Reference Center

SBCTC hosts a detailed PeopleSoft reference called the ctcLink Reference Center. This is a great resource for detailed instructions on how a particular aspect of ctcLink will work.

Data Services & Coding Manual

SBCTC’s Data Services team has a website focused on how important data will get reported out of ctcLink. They also maintain a Student and Course Coding Manual that describes how specific types of students and types of courses are coded in both PeopleSoft and the legacy SMS system.

Global Design Adoption Courses

The Global Design Adoption (GDA) courses are self-paced Canvas courses that will introduce faculty and staff to how common processes like registration, billing, and admissions have been set up in PeopleSoft. There are 27 courses that cover all three pillars of PeopleSoft (Campus Solutions, Finance, and Human Capital Management). The courses are available to whoever wants the knowledge; however, staff and faculty will be required to take specific courses that pertain to their current job responsibilities. View the courses and sign up.

Glossary

One of the best steps you can take is to begin learning the language of PeopleSoft. The state board’s training team has a helpful online glossary, which is a good way to start learning the terms.
