Beginner PayServ Training

Beginner PayServ is a one-day training session held periodically at the Office of the State Comptroller in Albany. Participants gain hands-on PayServ experience working with fictitious payroll data in our training database. Some of the topics covered during the Beginner PayServ class include: entering a new hire, entering a pay rate change, and entering a position change.

To attend an upcoming session, email the Payroll Training mailbox and provide your name, agency, contact information, and preferred training date. The following will be the last training classes available until after the PayServ 9.2 upgrade goes live:
