New resource for Army civilian training, leader development

To improve access to information and increase participation in Army Civilian training and leader development opportunities, the Army G-3/5/7 Training Directorate’s Civilian Training and Leader Development Division launched a one-stop website consolidating information about career program occupational and functional training, competitive professional development and leader development opportunities, as well as application procedures and course registration links.

The site, www.civiliantraining.army.mil, serves as an integrated resource for civilian employees, supervisors and Army leaders interested in learning more about the training and opportunities available to the Army Civilian Corps. Since several Army organizations administer the various leader development courses, developmental assignments and training, Army civilians and supervisors have in the past had to visit several different sites to find out about mandatory training and professional development opportunities.

“We wanted to provide civilians and supervisors a comprehensive site to help them more easily navigate the myriad opportunities in Army civilian training and leader development,” said Vicki Brown, chief, Civilian Training and Leader Development Division. “It’s our goal to ensure all civilians know about the available training — often at little or no cost to their units — and take advantage of the training that fits into their individual career goals and supports their organization outcomes.”

The new website includes course descriptions, prerequisites and registration links for Army Civilian Education System courses, Supervisor Development Course requirements, Competitive Professional Development and Academic Degree Training, advanced opportunities like Senior Service College, Army Congressional Fellowship Program and the Defense Senior Leadership Development Program, as well as career management tools like Army Career Tracker.

The Civilian Training and Leader Development Catalog, when fully deployed on the site, will be the official resource for information on centrally managed civilian training, professional and leader development training opportunities, replacing the information currently found in the Army Civilian Training, Education and Development System catalog.
