Training

SPA is pleased to offer customized individual and team training. Please contact us at (865) 974-2591 or spa@utk.edu to learn more about our training and certification programs.

Beginning January 2016, the SPA Certification courses will no longer be offered in Blount Hall.  The training will be offered through Employee and Organizational Development (EOD).  Jay Taylor, SPA Compliance Officer, will present these courses; however, you will need to register through the EOD training link at http://uthr.admin.utk.edu/TandD/Management_Supervision.shtml.

A tentative schedule has been developed for all 12 of the modules required for the SPA Certification.
