How to Prepare for Delaware Compliance Training


As a valued partner with Emtrain, we want to help you meet the newly released training requirements for the State of Delaware. Pursuant to SB 360 which was signed on August 29, 2018, you will need to launch training to ALL Delaware employees (when the employer has 50 or more employees) between January 1, 2019 and ensure they complete said training by December 31, 2019.

This Guide was created to explain the action items you will need to take and offer some Best Practices to accomplish this. Please consider this Guide a general overview and know that your company may have some unique circumstances which require additional set-up or tracking.

Please note: It is recommended you turn OFF any active course tracks while setting this up. Once the DE based employees have received their assignments, the remaining course tracks can be re-activated. 

Update Employee Population

1. Update Custom Data & Date Fields to Include:

  • Employment Status (full-time, part-time, intern, temps, joint employees, apprentices, and so forth)
  • Date of Hire (to track training completion within one year) 
  • Promotion Date (to track supervisor level training completion within one year) 
  • Retrain ID

2. Assess Updated Roster Template

  • Download & edit the roster template provided in the Upload/Edit tool
  • Use the Upload/Edit tool to identify the column order with which to pull your HRIS spreadsheet

3. Update Company Roster:

  • Add Delaware employees and fill in the additional data points (Date of Hire, Retrain ID, etc)
  • Update location to be state-specific, if it is not already (from USA to DE)
  • Update Retrain ID to Odd for all DE employees

4. Upload Company Roster to Admin Dashboard
