Once a student has gone though the materials, they need to complete the quiz of 10 questions with a passing grade of 80%. The results go into the Gradebook. UDDS information is also being fed into the Gradebook for reporting purposes.
The quiz and certificate are not supported via mobile devices or from a laptop connected via a cellular network. For best results, please complete via a desktop with an Ethernet connection.

Trainees' Pre-Course Questions
Question or issue
"I've already completed the UW-Health HIPAA training. Do I need to complete this training again?"
Yes, you need to complete the UW-Madison HIPAA training every year.
"I am a UW-Madison employee and want to take the HIPAA training, but am not enrolled."
To request enrollment in the training, contact the most appropriate HIPAA Privacy Coordinator at compliance.wisc.edu/hipaa so they may enroll you in the training.
"Someone other than my manager is telling me to complete the training."
You were identified by a HIPAA Privacy Coordinator as someone who needs to complete the UW-Madison HIPAA Training. If you think this is incorrect, contact the most appropriate HIPAA Privacy Coordinator at compliance.wisc.edu/hipaa.
"I am not a UW-Madison employee and do not have a UW-Madison NetID - but need to complete the training. What should I do?"
A public-facing online HIPAA training course will be available at compliance.wisc.edu/hipaa/training. You should complete that training; at the end of the training you will be prompted to complete a verification step that will send proof of completion of the training to your preferred email address.

"I completed the course content, but I get an error when I try to access the quiz."
After you have reached the end the course content, completely close out of your browser.
Your completion will not register until you have closed the browsing session, and you will not be able to access the quiz until your completion registers in Canvas.
If you reenter the course content, you will be asked if you want to resume where you left off. Make sure to say yes. Saying no will erase your completion data.
"I have passed the quiz. Where can I verify my completion of the course?"
After you complete the HIPAA Training Course, you can verify your completion directly in Canvas. Go to canvas.wisc.edu/grades. On a monthly basis, course completion data will also be forwarded to Learning and Talent Development for inclusion in training transcripts - but that will be a manual process and will not reflect completion status as timely as the Canvas Gradebook.
"I need help saving/reprinting my certificate."
There is no "certificate" with this training course.
Individuals can verify completion directly in Canvas as soon as they complete the training.
If someone says they need "proof" of their completion they can print the information available to them directly in Canvas.
