TRAINING CENTER MANAGEMENT

In order to maintain an effective work force, the standardization of federal agency employee training is essential. Many departments and agencies maintain large catalogs of courses, which are offered on multiple occasions each year around the country. These courses may also be available to partners in state and local governments, other federal agencies, and stakeholder entities. Maintenance of training materials, class logistics, staffing arrangements, and related records management, is a complex responsibility. To ensure the efficient operation of such services, many agencies maintain specialized training centers which contract with outsourced management companies.
