Sounds wrong Sarge. I would never ask for my staffs password and my administrator wouldn’t ask for mine. I would report this to HR or IT. You are the only one who needs access, to it. The training system should be able to send reports to your supervisor of trainings completed or trainings that are due. Absolutely no need for them to have access.

In fact as far as I’m aware, with my employer and many others. You are asked to not share passwords with anyone.

I’m sure your system has a way to reset passwords if needed, that is how these things work usually.

Sounds like your LT is being a bit of a micromanager.

I would just tell them that you will handle the security of your own password, a threat of a disciplinary action is just that a threat. I would ask them to have HR present if they wish to discuss further actions.

This is way i didn't asked my Officers their passwords. I told the LT, that i informed them of the request and that they would get with them. I didn't want to have the passwords. I felt it wasn't none of my business and they are responsible for it themselves. I will hold on to mine. I have all my passwords(written down) locked in a safe at home plus stored in my head. If i should forget, a call home to the wife will do. Sarge

I put in for two weeks of PTO. So far, not approved. I'm taking bets to how long it will be before they are signed off. One way or the other i will get my PTO. No reason other then being hateful. And yes, the darn phone will be off when not on duty. Once bitten, twice shy.

A wise man (quite a bit younger than I) once consoled me about a similar micro-managing supervisor. He said, "I've seen this before with guys like this. They all leave eventually."
I took that and ran with it. I stopped bad mouthing to others about him, but instead talked him up to anyone involved with promotions, which helped him get to his next job far far away. I'd says things like, "I can't believe he hasn't been promoted already."

Even if it's just the password for the cbt I'd be hesitant. All they need to do is fail some training in "your name" and there goes your job.

I had a similar situation. Worked at a fortune 100 company. Had someone directly above me who wanted my password for the computer I used. I politely refused. They got the person above them to demand my password , I refused again. That person got the boss above them , I refused again. HR got involved , I refused again. Then I was called into the office with a very high level manager and asked for my password , I refused again.

I explained to them that my password is my 'electronic signature ' , I am responsible for it. Most importantly I own it. Not the company , it is my property and not the company's. I told them that if they wanted the person directly above me to access the computer , issue them a password. I also suggested that the very high manager wanted this person to use the computer , he could loan his password to the person who wanted it but my password was not being loaned out period. I stood my ground. A lot of my coworkers thought I was going to get fired.

End of the story , I stood my ground. The password is my property. They issued this other person a password.

Trust me. They know when you log on, where you go how long you’ve been there and what you posted when you where there. Depending on how many employees the employer has, an algorithm with set parameters flags excessive visits. Any training or information only programs will have a “blanket” password. This password can be changed by the user, but shouldn’t be. To reset to the intended password after it has been changed by the employee would be the only need to request the password used by the employee.

That and if they are getting ready to furlough employees and need access to their computers to reprogram for future use. There’s normally a condition for getting the requested logon info like attaching cooperation to severance packages and paychecks.
