    Seeking Design Advice


    I am planning to build a training database for my team at work and would like to get design advice before I start.

    What I am trying to do:.

    I want to have a list of processes that are assigned to specific departments.

    I want a form for employee training and what processes they need to be trained against.

    So when an employee is added to the database and they are added to a department, I want a list to generate with all the processes to be trained for that specific department.

    How would I go about doing this?

    Should i set up a table for processes which are linked to a department. Then when I select the department for an employee to processes list.

    How would I get this to work?

    I do not need a step by step, just a point of direction to take.

    Thank you.

    Assuming that a process can be required by more than one department, I'm thinking a departments table, a processes table, and a many-to-many junction table with fields for department ID and process ID (and typically it's own autonumber primary key).
