The OIT Technology Training Team is dedicated to the creation and deployment of agile, purpose-driven training in support of both enterprise wide initiatives and operations management. We provide information technology (IT) training and consulting services for the entire American University community, with a primary focus on serving AU's staff members.

We offer training in a variety of formats ranging from online training modules, and virtual instructor led training to practical hands-on, skills based workshops, and customized training courses on enterprise-wide software for departments, committees, and work groups.

Our Technical Training Team is comprised of three, full-time dedicated knowledge providers who design, administer, and deliver the technical training curriculum. We manage our training program to align with AU's strategic plan and goals, and strive to foster professional development in a supportive learning environment.
