Learning and Professional Development (LPD) programs are designed to enhance a variety of employee skills at all levels of experience and meet different learning styles. Professional development opportunities and courses for bargaining unit and exempt employees range from classroom training to on-demand, online courses.
As always, there is no cost for state employees to participate in these training opportunities. We encourage you to work with your supervisor to determine the best courses for your work.
