HRD Class Schedule

Your Growth is Our Mission

The mission of HR Development (HRD) is to deliver high-quality service in content, instruction, technology and operational support to employee learners (full-time, part-time and temporary employees). Our vision is to connect Auburn people with their future by providing talent development experiences to support their growth.

HRD courses are designed with working adults in mind. These classes can help you:

  • Gain tools to do your job better,

  • Build your resume, and

  • Grow personally and professionally.

We've Gone Virtual

For the summer semester, HRD courses will be offered virtually. Access the Zoom link for your course from one of four areas:

  • Receiving the course calendar invite

  • Receiving the "Course Enrollment Verification" email notification (calendar invite attachment)

  • Receiving the "Course Reminder Message" email notification

  • Selecting your course from the training calendar in Fast-Train

Additional Details

  • If the Zoom link is not available in any of these four areas, you will receive it from your course facilitator prior to class. 

  • Contact autrain@auburn.edu if you need a phone-in number for your course.

  • You may receive material and handouts from autrain@auburn.edu or your course facilitator .

  • Zoom instructions and Zoom etiquette are available online.
