View All Programs

From training classes and workshops, to career development programs, management and team development programs, and certificate programs, the Workplace Learning & Development team provides the resources to achieve your personal and professional goals.

Most of the courses have a capacity of 20 participants and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Participation is on a voluntary basis, with supervisory approval.

Employees should discuss any training plans and dates with their supervisor to ensure there is adequate coverage. To the extent that it is possible and practical, supervisors are encouraged to allow their staff to participate in professional development opportunities.
