Request for Training Funds

James Madison University encourages and supports the professional development of its employees. Funds are available for AP Faculty, classified staff and wage employees, after their probationary period, for participation in job-related professional development opportunities as well as job-related training materials including the following:

Conferences Workshops Seminars Certification Manuals Books
Certification Programs Webinars Training DVDs Workbooks Other Reading Materials

JMU will not pay for workshops taken to meet minimum requirements of an employee's present job, for a certification that is part of a program of study that will qualify the employee for a new trade or business, or for travel and lodging expenses associated with the training.  Additionally, Training Funds may not be used to pay for conference/event fees associated with presenting responsibilities.  Training Funds may only be used to support job related employee learning activities.  For more information concerning Training and Development Funds, please see Policy 1403.

To request Training Funds:

  • Complete the Request for Training Funds form and PRINT OUT THE FORM; obtain the required signatures and send the original document to the Talent Development Department (MSC 5808) for approval. 
  • Once approved, and the event has been attended, the participant(s) submits a receipt for the registration fee along with the Learning Summary in order to receive the departmental reimbursement.
