Employee Training and Development

Every career should foster professional and personal growth and satisfaction. Lamar University offers employee training and development opportunities to help you excel in your current position, prepare for advancement, and access new career options.

We are excited for all newly hired employees to have their mandatory training assigned through Training Nest and look forward to all Lamar University employees completing their mandatory training on the new system beginning Fall 2021.

One of the amazing features of Training Nest is the ability to add department specific training that can be assigned and tracked within the system.  If your department has training that you are interested in adding, please fill out the brief infomational sheet and someone from the Training Nest team will reach out.


To access Training Nest, visit LUConnect, select Faculty/Staff and look for the Training Nest icon. This introduction video will provide an overview of Lamar's training management system and allow you to see all that Training Nest has to offer.
