When your state completes the online “UNITY:  State Personnel Directory Data Request” and you the ICJO-Coordinator are ready to get your state started, contact Joe Johnson at jjohnson@juvenilecompact.org.   Joe Johnson will provide you an email to send out to your state agents so they can get access to the https://www.ICJ.TalentLMS.com   on-demand learning system.

Is UNITY browser-agnostic?

Yes; users can access UNITY through Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari. 

What data will be used in the UNITY Training Site?

In order to protect juvenile confidentiality, data will not be migrated from JIDS to the Training Site. Each state will enter data for cases based on scenarios provided.

What information do state IT Departments need to ensure our state can access UNITY?

The National Office will disseminate a letter to UNITY Coordinators in October 2020 detailing specific system requirements and any security-related concerns, such as the UNITY IP address to add to your state's safe list.  

What is the difference between the UNITY Training Site and TalentLMS?

The UNITY Training Site is an interactive virtual environment where learners can test new skills without impacting the live site. It will be available 24/7 beginning at least one month prior to "go live." Talent LMS is a platform to provide guidance and tutorials on how to use the UNITY system. There is no set time limit and advance reservations are not required on either.

What role will I use in the UNITY Training Site?

JPOs, JPSs, and ICJOs will log into the UNITY Training Site using their own specific role.

Where can I find support for UNITY?

When a user is logged in to UNITY, they can access the Online Support Request form link located in the "Help" section which is at the bottom of nearly every screen:
