Student Required Training


(August 14, 2020)

Dear Students,

Today I reach out with an update on our new COVID-19 training for all students. For those who have completed the training, thank you! You may disregard the rest of this message.

As we prepare for the start of the Fall 2020 semester, all students are required to take an online COVID-19 Training Course and complete a self-certification form. You are enrolled in a no-fee online mandatory COVID-19 training course that also includes a self-certification process, housed in our learning management system, Blackboard Learn.

Who must take this training? This training is required for all students regardless if you are taking face-to-face or virtual classes.

By when must I complete the training? This online COVID-19 training is live for Fall 2020. Access is blocked to your Blackboard academic courses until the COVID-19 training is complete. In an effort to ensure you can start the semester as planned you should complete the training as soon as possible to comply with the training requirement before you return to campus.

What if do not complete the training prior to classes beginning? If the training is not completed, you will not be able to access to your courses in Blackboard. In a change from last weeks’ notice, at this time you will not be dropped from your classes; rather you will be prevented from accessing any information in your Blackboard academic courses until the training is complete.

How do I access this COVID-19 training? Training is accessible from tablets and desktop computers.

  • Log into JNET (, and select the Blackboard Learn icon in the upper right corner of the JNET landing page.
  • Once you are in Blackboard Learn, select “Courses” in the left menu bar.
  • Select the COVID-19 course and review the purpose and instructions on the landing page. To complete the course,
    • Step 1: View and acknowledge the Student COVID-19 Training Quiz by acknowledging each slide within the PDF (23 slides).
    • Step 2: Next, read and acknowledge all six question in the “COVID-19 Student Protocol and Certification Quiz”.
  • If you wish to verify completion of the training, navigate to “My Grades” on the left menu in the Blackboard COVID-19 course. If you have a score of 83 points, your training is complete.
  • You will not receive a certificate of completion, but your completion is noted in the system.

Please ensure that you are monitoring your health daily, and if you have symptoms that could be COVID-19 related, stay home and seek medical care as needed. Javelinas care, protect and help. If you have any questions, please contact me at
