List of Agency Resources

The Federal Chief Learning Officers Council, in partnership with OPM, has developed a wiki page where agencies may share resources, materials, and courses. These materials are available for download below. 

Before downloading any course source code or taking the course through the wiki, you should determine whether these courses already are offered through your agency's LMSs. If so, you should access the course through your agency's LMS to document the training within your agency. We also provide EHRI fields with each course. Please make sure you capture the correct EHRI data fields. 

Courses on this wiki page are 508 compliant, according to the agency that developed it. Please adhere to your agency's 508 compliance procedures when downloading any course source code.

Human Capital Essentials & Human Capital Advanced
HC Essentials was designed for all first-time supervisors and supervisors new to the Department of Education. The course is available in two formats – Adobe Flash and a 508 compliant version in HTML for employees with special needs.  HC Essentials provides the new supervisor with a foundation on human resource policies and processes and should be taken within the first year of an appointment to a new supervisory position.  The training is divided into eleven (11) modules that offer supervisors an opportunity to update their knowledge of human resource issues and get answers to the "real world" questions seasoned supervisors face.

Human Capital Advanced: Beyond the Basics is a follow-up course that builds upon the key elements provided in HC Essentials. This online course provides a managerial training update, which is required every three years as mandated by Federal regulations. The training is divided into six (6) modules that provide supervisors with additional training on actions, options, and strategies for managing employees at the Department of Education.

The Federal Collaborative e-Learning Laboratory

The Federal Collaborative e-Learning Laboratory (Fed-CEL) is a trail blazing online community of instructional designers, graphic designers, Web developers, and subject matter experts from across the Federal Government. Through sharing time and resources and working collaboratively, the Fed-CEL will:

  • Explore and implement best practices in online training and instructional design
  • Use the latest technology to create cutting edge training
  • Produce collaboratively-built online course content
  • Become a clearinghouse for mandatory training
  • Develop a community of practice for ISD and design in the Federal Government.

The establishment of the Fed-CEL will reduce course and content development costs across the Federal sector through pooling of resources and the establishment of a clearinghouse for common mandated training. The community will also improve overall ISD and e-learning knowledge by allowing for knowledge sharing, evaluation and discussion of best practices. This in turn will foster innovation in e-learning development as members experiment and build on each other's work.

If you would like to join our community or have questions about Fed-CEL, please contact 
Ross Allan.

Grants Management
The Grants Management Training Agency Guide aims to ensure that Federal employees have the skills and training necessary to effectively and efficiently manage more than $300 billion in grants that the Federal Government awards annually.

This guide informs Federal agencies of best practices for training grants managers, and informs Federal employees of the knowledge and skills needed to progress in the field of grants management. The guide also identifies, defines, categorizes, and ranks various competencies -- the skills and knowledge that agencies seek in their grants managers. The result is a tool that agencies can use to bring their own practices into line with those of the Federal community at large. 

This tool is likewise a resource for Federal employees to identify training courses that would benefit them in their current careers or help them obtain the skills and knowledge needed to enter into a new career in the field of grants management.
