If the employee’s supervisor does not approve the training, the supervisor can choose not to modify the employee’s work schedule to accommodate the coursework.
Please see OPM’s website regarding scheduling and approving Annual Leave: http://www.opm.gov/OCA/LEAVE/HTML/ANNUAL.asp
You will find that supervisors are ultimately responsible for the overall planning, coordination, and approving of their employees' annual leave so that the agency's mission and employees' needs are met. A supervisor has the right to approve or deny any request for leave.
For more information on work schedules, go to pp. 30-32 in the Training Policy Handbook.
