What is PDWS?
Professional Development and Workshop Services (PDWS) main training focus is Microsoft applications and Colleague (formerly known as Datatel) and its related systems. The majority of training is delivered online (web-based), however some instructor-led training may be offered subject to institutional needs.
PDWS provides other training topics, located on the menu in the Other Self-Paced Modules and Other Training tabs.
We are currently in the process of moving to a new registration system. Our new system is called Canvas Catalog and is hosted through the Canvas system. This new system will track all of your PDWS-hosted professional development (self-paced modules and face-to-face training) and list it on a transcript.
We are in the process of moving self-paced modules and face-to-face offerings into Catalog. If you do not see a training listed in this website, please check Catalog to register there.

HCC Departments may request customized training or special training (not included in the PDWS website). PDWS will make every effort to accommodate these requests, subject to the availability of funds and training resources. All training requests must be approved by the employee’s supervisor. Employees are encouraged to discuss training needs with their supervisor. For additional information click on the Other Training tab on the left menu.
