Education & Training

The role of the University Compliance and Ethics Program at FIU is to proactively raise awareness of compliance issues through education and training in order to ensure that compliance is central to the institution’s culture and fabric.

Florida International University offers compliance education and training in a decentralized fashion. Many areas are tasked with the responsibility of offering compliance-related training.

You may request a training session for your unit or department by contacting the unit noted below. Registration for many of these training opportunities is offered through the Division of Human Resources, Talent Management & Development (“TMD”) web site at: professionaldevelopment.fiu.edu.

In order to facilitate training for FIU faculty and staff, please see the list of compliance-related training courses below.
