Core Programs

PLEASE NOTE: In order to keep our State employees safe and to adhere to the current restrictions for social distancing, ALL live Classroom training sessions have been suspended and changed to Virtual Training. ETD has converted and delivered virtual classes to support the training and development needs of all State employees. With this successful transition, we launched Supervisor and Manager Core Programs and are again providing the necessary training that was halted during the initial COVID-19 problems. If you have an interest in particular programs or classes, visit our ETD course catalog in the Course Finder, where you can explore courses we've offered in the past, our current courses, or courses we may offer in the future.and wish to receive a reminder when the class is available, If you need additional help, please contact your Training Coordinator through the ETD Training Email.
