Workday Financials Training

All training is role-based. If you have requested a Workday Finance role, you will be assigned the training for that role and will be able to find it in the “Required for You” section of Workday Learning. If you do not see it or if you want to complete the training prior to or when you submit a request for a role, you may search for the training for the role as listed below and enroll.

Requesting Finance Security Roles

To request access to a Workday Finance Security Role, log in to Workday  and choose System Access Requests.  Not sure what training is required or recommended?  Check out our Security Roles & Training list. 

You’ll also be able to access help right at the point where you're working in the system through Workday Digital Assist (WDA).
