Am I required to take training?
Training is delegated to the agencies (5 U.S.C. 4103(a)). Each agency is responsible for developing its own programs. You should check with your agency to obtain information on training your agency specifically requires for SES members. Agencies are required to develop learning programs and opportunities for the continued development of their executives.
All Federal employees are required to take a set of Federal Mandatory training courses including IT Security Awareness, No Fear Act, and EEO training. Executives are required to take Ethics Awareness training as well. Check with your Executive Resources office for a schedule of these mandatory courses at your agency.
