Where can I find information on Suitability Adjudication Determination Training?

The Office of Personnel Management’s Federal Investigative Services is currently developing and offering, on a pilot basis, a course entitled the Fundamentals of Suitability Review and Adjudication


This course is directed toward Federal employees from Executive Branch agencies who perform work as suitability adjudicators or have a suitability screening and adjudication review type function.  The purpose of this course is to equip suitability adjudicators with the necessary tools and knowledge of the suitability review and adjudication processes outlined in title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, part 731 and the Suitability Processing Handbook, thereby enabling them to evaluate and adjudicate a person's suitability for Federal employment.  Attendees must be Federal employees who have been issued a copy of the Suitability Processing Handbook by the designated agency official. 


Another option for suitability adjudication training is the USDA Graduate School’s Suitability Adjudication Course.  Information concerning this course can be found at this website:   OPM originally developed this course and has approved its content.  This course is open only to Federal employees, and the individual must also have a copy of OPM's Suitability Processing Handbook to attend the class.
