Career Development
Resources for employees to chart successful civilian careers.

Employee Development

Assessment tools for employees and supervisors can help identify employees’ potential and assess their ability to become successful leaders. These tools can identify strengths and weaknesses and guide employees through developmental activities to progressively increase leadership potential. We encourage you to take advantage of these and other assessment tools to help you as you chart your career path.

Career Planning

The Individual Development Plan (IDP) helps employees and supervisors plan and chart progress in career development. The IDP serves as a blueprint to help you identify career objectives and assess what you need to do to progress. An IDP helps an employee and supervisor create a system of checks and balances, it improves morale, and it increases job and organizational performance. The IDP is a living document that you update, revise, and adjust as you gain experience. It also helps you adjust your career path as your developmental needs change. Your IDP is tailored to your learning objectives and competencies; it includes milestones you set to help guide you in your career development choices.

Local training announcements are sent out as training is scheduled.

Note: When requesting classes, each employee is responsible for obtaining supervisory approval prior to registering for any training.
