TEXAS TRAIN Registration

Non HHSC employees:

Instructions for accessing TEXAS TRAIN are on the login screen. Make sure you are on the TEXAS TRAIN website, not the CDC TRAIN site. Use your agency email account (not a personal email account) as your user ID.  When you create your account, select “Texas User Group” for State Portal under the GROUPS tab.


HHSC enterprise employees:

The system automatically creates an account for you when you are hired. Your email address is your user ID.

You must login before searching for a course. If you search for a course and try to register without logging in, you will get an error message. 

If you have taken the online security course, you already have a login.

If you can’t remember your login, and the “Forgot your login/password” takes longer than 15 minutes to send you a link, DON’T CREATE ANOTHER ACCOUNT.  Mary VanWisse can assist you to find your login or reset your password.  



  1. Please make sure you have turned off pop up blockers.
  2. If you experience technical difficulty, check the “system requirements” under the help menu on the home page. If you do not see a Help tab on the home page, select “CLASSIC TRAIN” from the upper right-hand side of the screen.
  3. Use one of the recommended system requirements.
