Evaluator Training

Wednesday, October 5, 2016
From: 
MARK W. LAMBERT Associate Director

On April 11, 2017, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management will begin the first of four evaluator training courses in FY17.  The three-day training course is intended for agency employees who participate in human resources evaluations associated with the Strengthening Agency Accountability initiative.  The training focuses on the Human Capital Assessment and Accountability Framework and all three phases of the evaluation process (e.g., pre-onsite, onsite, and post-onsite), and includes real-world practical exercises.  

Here is information for the April training course:

 

When: 

 

April 11 - 13, 2017

8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. each day

Where:

Theodore Roosevelt Building

U.S. Office of Personnel Management

1900 E Street, NW, Rm. 1425A

Washington, DC  20415

If your agency would like to send staff to the April session, please RSVP to Tim Heath at (202) 674-3990 or timothy.heath@opm.gov by close of business March 10, 2017.  Each attendee should complete the attached Individual Assessment Form, which will help our facilitators better prepare for the course. 

Space is limited to 25 participants per course.  The remaining three sessions will be offered on June 6-8, 2017; August 22-24, 2017; and September 19-21, 2017.  Your staff may register for any of these sessions with Mr. Heath at any time.  In addition, if you are interested in an onsite session specifically for your agency (a minimum of 20 participants), please contact Mr. Heath.

We look forward to your agency’s participation in this important training.
