Frequently Asked Questions Training

Is there any requirement that says when an employee attends training, they are obligated to participate in the entire training unless they have cleared it with their supervisor?

There is no regulatory requirement that says an employee is obligated to participate in the entire training.  However, 5 CFR 410.405 states, “the head of an agency shall establish such procedures as he or she considers necessary to protect the Government’s interest when employees fail to complete, or to successfully complete, training for which the agency pays the expenses”.  It is up to the agency to develop and communicate such policies and procedures to employees before the training event.
