Training Central Account Information

Lightbulb

Training Central is available to all NMSU employees (including student and temporary employees) and affiliates. Retirees or students not employed by NMSU must request access to the site. 

 

If you think you have an active account but can’t login, please review the following: 

  1. You are a temporary employee (including student worker, graduate assistant, and adjunct faculty) and currently not under contract with NMSU. Your account is most likely deactivated and will be automatically reactivated when your contract begins. Temporary faculty between semesters will still have access to Training Central unless they do not return for the subsequent term. 
  2. You entered your NMSU email in the Username field. Your username is your email without the “@nmsu.edu” at the end (e.g. Aggie1888). 
  3. The Caps Lock key is on when entering your password. Your password is case-sensitive. 
  4. You previously saved your password and need to clear your browser cache. Here are some resources that can help you with clearing your cache:

Employees and Affiliates

A Training Central account is automatically created within 48 hours after your first day of work, contract, or affiliation (may take longer if the hiring/affiliation paperwork has not been entered into Banner HR or Human Resource Services is experiencing high-hire times). An active myNMSU account is also required to log into the system.

Affiliates: In order to participate in NMSU-sponsored activities or work in NMSU facilities, you must work with your NMSU contact to complete all required affiliation paperwork. 

Note: If it’s been more than 48 hours since your first day of work and you are still unable to log in, talk to your hiring manager and verify your employment information is in Banner. Email trainingcentral@nmsu.edu if you are active in Banner and unable to log into Training Central.
