Building proctor training is required for all CSU building proctors and assistant building proctors, though any CSU employees are welcome to attend any of the sessions, in the interest of campus and personal preparedness.

Tier Trainings for Proctors

These trainings are led by Bob Chaffee and professionals from a variety of departments at CSU. Our team recommends taking the three tiers in order when possible.

Training Materials

Tier 1

Instructor: Bob Chaffee (lead instructor), campus experts from CSU police, facilities, and health and safety departments.
Contact Hours: 3-4 hours, depending on discussion
Frequency: 3-4 times/year

Who should attend: All building proctors who have not previously attended the training, as well as experienced proctors who would like a refresher. Please consider inviting other in your department who may be interested in daily operations.

Course description: You have the keys and the manual… now what? Learn the basic responsibilities and authority of building proctors. This introductory course will provide you with a review of the duties and common issues faced by every building proctor.

Topics include:

  • Building safety
  • Typical maintenance issues
  • Information sharing
  • Question and answer time with several instructors

Case studies and lots of interaction will make this information immediately useful.

Bring your Building Proctor Manual (pdf) to class for reference.

Which Tiers are Required?

Tier 1 and Tier 2 are required of all building proctors and assistant proctors.

Tier 3 is optional, but strongly recommended.

Proctor Manuals and Workbooks

Tier 1: Bring a copy of the Building Proctor Manual to class.

Tier 2: Bring your copy of the Building Proctor Manual, and bring a copy of the Student Learning Guide.

Tier 2

Instructor: Bob Chaffee (lead instructor), with campus experts from health and safety, CSU police, and additional departments.
Contact Hours: 4
Frequency: 3-4 times/year
Prerequisite: Completion of Tier 1 training is recommended, but not required

Who should attend: All building proctors and assistant building proctors who have completed Tier 1 training. Please invite other members of your department who are not proctors, as the skills taught here apply to life beyond work. Attendance at Tier 1 is not required of non-proctors.

Course description: This is the second of three modules designed to train proctors and assistant proctors in emergency preparation and response concepts related to their buildings. Further, the University Plan will be discussed and reviewed so proctors know “where they fit” in the overall plan, portions of which are including in the Student Learning Guide.

This preparation includes simple medical emergencies to more major emergencies such as fire or utility outages, culminating in developing and/or updating a plan for your work site or area. All proctors and assistant proctors should attend this module and may attend additional modules as their job duties indicate.

Please print and review the Student Leader Guide prior to coming to class, where it will be used as a reference and completed.

Tier 3

Instructor: Bob Chaffee (lead instructor), with campus experts from health and safety departments.
Contact Hours: 3
Frequency: Once annually
Prerequisites: Tiers 1 and 2 are recommended before completing Tier 3

Who should attend: All building proctors who have not previously attended the training, as well as experienced proctors who would like a refresher. Open to all CSU faculty and staff.

Course description:

This advanced session for proctors will cover services, expertise, and resources available to proctors in routine or emergency situations. Topics include:

  • Emergency communications
  • Energy conservation
  • Fire safety and evacuation
  • Right to know regulations related to hazardous materials
  • Workplace ergonomics
