Mandatory Training

Mandatory Anti-Harassment Training

Employees attending training in a computer lab

We recognize that mandatory training may feel like a chore, but don’t worry! EDI provides high-quality, engaging online content through the NIH Learning Management System to assist you in meeting NIH’s mandatory training requirement.

A new online Anti-Harassment training was launched last year. There are several changes associated with this new training:

  1. The training encompasses requirements for both the Notification and Federal Employee Anti-discrimination and Retaliation (No FEAR) and Prevention of Sexual Harassment (POSH) trainings;
  2. This new Anti-Harassment training is required for NIH federal employees, trainees, fellows, and contractors;
  3. The training must be taken within 90 days of onboarding and then on an annual basis.
  4. Failure to comply with the training requirement will result in the disablement of active directory accounts until the requirement is met. Any individual whose active directory account is disabled is unable to sign into their computer or access emails.

Access the new Anti-Harassment Training


We also offer instructor-led training sessions designed for managers and supervisors as well instructor-led sessions for employees. Participation in these training sessions also satisfy the mandatory training requirement!

*Please note that individuals who have already taken the No FEAR and POSH trainings this calendar year, either via the prior online module, an instructor led class or new employee orientation (NEO), have already met the training requirement for this year. If you have any questions regarding satisfaction of the requirement, please contact your IC’s mandatory training coordinator.
