ctcLink Training

Important Note!

At this time we recommend that you only take the Self Service courses that are offered. Additional trainings will be offered as we approach our launch in October/November 2021. For now stick to the Self Service courses and we will communicate when and which courses come next.

The best thing you, as an employee, can do to help ensure our smooth transition to ctcLink is to complete online training, which is available now. Courses are arranged by employee category. Review the accordion sections below for the best match to your job responsibilities, and expand the accordion. Information on how to enroll is provided.

  • Courses are self-paced. Longer courses allow you to pause at certain points (end of modules) and continue at a later time so you do not need to complete the course all in one sitting.
  • All online Canvas courses for your role need to be completed by October 15.
  • If you are unsure which course you should complete, please check with your supervisor.
  • Additional guided training will be offered online beginning in October.

Help Resources for Employees:

FYI: We've also developed a web resource section called ctcLink Help Resource to help employees complete essential tasks in ctcLink based on your role and department.

Additional Resources

ctcLink Reference Center

SBCTC hosts a detailed PeopleSoft reference called the ctcLink Reference Center. This is a great resource for detailed instructions on how a particular aspect of ctcLink will work.

Data Services and Coding Manual

SBCTC’s Data Services team has a website focused on how important data will get reported out of ctcLink. They also maintain a Student and Course Coding Manual that describes how specific types of students and types of courses are coded in both PeopleSoft and the legacy SMS system.

Global Design Adoption Courses

The Global Design Adoption (GDA) courses are self-paced Canvas courses that will introduce faculty and staff to how common processes like registration, billing, and admissions have been set up in PeopleSoft. There are 27 courses that cover all three pillars of PeopleSoft (Campus Solutions, Finance, and Human Capital Management). The courses are available to whoever wants the knowledge; however, staff and faculty will be required to take specific courses that pertain to their current job responsibilities. View the courses and sign up.

Glossary

One of the best steps you can take is to begin learning the language of PeopleSoft. The state board’s training team has a helpful online glossary, which is a good way to start learning the terms.

Below you will find trainings based on your role and department. We want to help you complete the essential tasks to help you learn how to navigate ctcLink. Look for your department name below for trainings assigned to your area.

Directions for Signing Up for a Training:

  1. Go to the ctcLink Training Registration page (opens new tab on the SBCTC website).

Important Notes: The courses are self-paced. Longer courses allow you to pause at certain points (end of modules) and continue at a later time so you do not need to complete the course all in one sitting. If you encounter any issues or don't have a Canvas account, contact eLearning. Supervisors are provided reports of which employees have completed which courses.

Employee Self-Service Tutorials and Help Resources

In October/November 2021, Bellingham Technical College will move to a new system for student and employee self-service. This new system, called ctcLink, will change the way you do all your college business. This section of the Training page was designed to help guide employees in completing some essential tasks based on your role and department. These resources will help you answer questions about performing basic tasks in ctcLink.

Click on the accordion box under the appropriate category for step-by-step instructions. Note: we will continue to add and refine information as it is developed. Check back often whenever you need help or have questions.

Employee Information

Employee Time and Leave Reporting

Manager Self-Service

  • Approve Timesheets

    Managers need to approve timesheets (aka payable time) for their classified, hourly, and student employees. Hourly and student employees are only paid for time reported through ctcLink and that their manager approves.

    Deadlines:

    Pay Period    Normal Pay Date   Timesheet Deadline
    1st to 15th of month  25th day of month  16th day of month
    16th to end of month          10th day of month               1st day of month                

    Note:

    • Timesheets for a pay period can be submitted and approved multiple times if changes need to be made.
    • HR encourages hourly and student employees to submit their time worked each day. Managers can approve time as it is submitted or weekly, and do not need to wait until the end of the pay period to approve.
