The Users' Office receives regularly questions about the responsibility of Team Leaders, the role they are expected to fulfil as well as details of the administrative actions they are required to provide for their team members. To assist the Team Leaders and their Deputies, the Users' Office has developed answers to these questions in the form of an e-training based on its experience over the past years. This e-course has the same look and feel as other online courses at CERN and is available in SIR after having signed in.
Team Leaders and Deputy Team Leaders are invited to take this e-course. It is followed by a short test and the result will be recorded to enable the role as a Team Leader or Deputy Team Leader together with the nomination form.
Passing the course and the small test will become mandatory as of 1st of September 2017. After that date, Team Leaders or Deputy Team Leaders who have not passed the test will not be authorized to sign documents related to the contract registration or extension of their team members. At the same date, the role of Team Leader or Deputy Team Leader will be discontinued for those who do not have a contract as Associated Member of the Personnel at CERN.
