EEOC Announces 2014 Federal Training Courses

Programs Include OPM Joint Training: EEO and HR for Managers & Supervisors

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) today announced the online posting of its 2014 Federal Training Course schedule, available at www.eeotraining.eeoc.gov at https://secure.kinsail.com/results.asp?p=eeoc&pt=store&GroupID=29207

The EEOC offers a variety of training programs geared specifically to federal employees.  The interactive training is ideal for federal supervisors and workers, EEO counselors and investigators, agency representatives and attorneys, as well as anyone else interested in EEO issues and practices affecting the federal workplace. 

Course offerings meet training requirements for EEO counselors and investigators as outlined in Management Directive (MD) 110.  Other courses are tailored to meet the needs of federal managers, those responsible for conducting MD-715 barrier analyses, and drafters of final agency decisions. 

"Proactive prevention is the best medicine to stop discrimination before it starts," said Carlton Hadden, director of the EEOC's Office of Federal Operations.  "Education and training on EEO is an effective and modest investment in preventing workplace disputes."

The 2014 course schedule includes:

  • EEO and HR for Managers & Supervisors (joint EEOC/OPM program)
  • Barrier Analysis
  • Basics of MD-715
  • Disability Program Management (basic and advanced)
  • Drafting Final Agency Decisions
  • EEO Laws Refresher
  • Counselor and Investigator Refresher
  • New Counselor and New Investigator

The EEOC enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination in the public and private sectors.  Further information is available on EEOC's website at www.eeoc.gov.
