Website Editor Training

Divisions, centers, institutes, and business units are strongly encouraged to designate authorized website editors to handle routine content update requests for their faculty and staff.  

The Chair's Office conducts trainings approximately once or twice per month.  Pre-registration is required for all trainings through an online reservation form. 

Units that have not finished the initial migration process from the old Pitt Pediatrics website to the new template should not register any editors for training until this work is completed.

Pitt Network Account Requirement

All personnel registering for training and seeking to serve as a website editor must have a University of Pittsburgh network account. 

  • Current Pitt faculty, staff, and students may use their existing credentials.  No special steps are required for access.
  • UPMC and University of Pittsburgh Physicians (UPP) personnel who do not have a sponsored Pitt network account must request one prior to completing the registration form and attending a training.  UPMC and UPP personnel that already have a Pitt network account for Pitt Worx, Concur, PantherExpress, and other Pitt services can use the same account for website training and editing purposes.

Training Options

Available training session options will automatically populate on the registration form.  All training dates, times, locations, and seating capacities are subject to change.

Virtual trainings are held via Microsoft Teams.  In-person trainings are conducted at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in Lawrenceville unless otherwise noted.  Seats for trainings are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. 

There is no virtual attendance option for in-person meetings.  All faculty and staff that register for an in-person meeting must physically attend.  Personnel that prefer a virtual meeting must select a virtual meeting option on the registration form.
