Training Opportunities and OASIS Access
Equipment Inventory offers training, as well as informational videos, regarding equipment policies at the University of Washington. All training is available online 24/7.
Please Note: You can only access OASIS on computers directly connected to the UW network. If you remote in to a computer on campus, you can access OASIS. If you use VPN to connect to the UW network, you will not be able to access OASIS.
OASIS Training and Access
To access OASIS, you need to complete the following two training programs, as well as an access permission form signed by your manager.
This course covers basic UW equipment policies, and passing this class is a prerequisite for taking the OASIS training. When you have successfully passed this training, you will be sent an access permission form, and be invited to sign up for the OASIS training.
The General Inventory Procedures training is also recommended for all inventory contacts, even those not needing OASIS access.
OASIS training is now offered online. If you would like to sign up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. General Inventory Procedures is a pre-requisite for this training. This course is required to gain full access to OASIS for your department.

We also offer a very limited "read only" access that doesn't require any formal OASIS training. Pros and cons of this type of access are detailed on the Read Only OASIS Access page. To gain this "read only" access, please complete and submit the following form: Read-only OASIS Access Form.
This video course is optional for inventory contacts though it is strongly encouraged for anyone who will be performing a physical inventory. It covers inventory regulations, steps to complete your inventory, and various tips and tricks for making the inventory process easier.
