Mandatory COVID-19 Awareness Training for Employees

We would like to remind employees that they must complete the COVID-19 Awareness Training for Humber Employees before they physically return to campus, or within the first two weeks of the start of their employment/contract, whichever comes first. The training covers the risks of COVID-19, methods of transmission, on campus safety measures, and more. 

The mandatory employee training is available on Blackboard and the general instructions for accessing the training are below. If you do not have access to Blackboard, please contact us at to make alternate arrangements. The training should take approximately one hour to complete.

If you have questions about the training or if you have concerns about health and safety, please contact your manager. Managers may send their list of new employees to to provide them with access to the training.

Employees who have taken the training previously do not have to retake the training; however, they still have access to the course if they wish to review the training.

Please note that the Return to Campus Agreement which was previously emailed to employees through the DocuSign process will no longer be sent to new employees; instead, the Agreement has been incorporated into the current version of the COVID-19 Awareness training.   

If you have any questions about the training, please contact your manager or Occupational Health and Safety at
