Welcome to the OPM Federal Training and Development Wiki

Training and development are one of the most critical areas to the success of an organization and their workforce. Providing training for employees not only helps them develop their skills and knowledge, but it is also motivational and a building block to organizational success. In order to facilitate agencies training and development programs, OPM developed this wiki for Federal Government training and development practitioners to learn, share relevant information, and collaborate.


The wiki is open to everyone to view and search for content. Only Federal Government employees may post content tools, resources and best practices directly onto the wiki. All users are encouraged to provide comments relevant to the page topic thus making the wiki a “living” and ever-evolving resource.  You may also comment and or ask questions via the disuss tab on this page. Please use the Wiki Quick Reference Guide ( WIKI_quick_reference_guide_Oct 2010 .pdf )for assistance in accessing the wiki.

Topics on each wiki page are organized into these categories:

Solve Problems (How can I utilize this in my agency?)

Stay Current (What are other organizations doing in this area?)

Find Opportunities
(What training or other opportunities are available in this area?)

Discover Helpful Tools and Resources
(What other tools and resources are available to me?)
