Do you have a course to share with HR University?

Many Federal Agencies do a terrific job creating web or classroom based  courses to train staff and managers. We want to increase the number of Government owned courses on HRU so we can diversify our catalog offerings and share the wealth of  knowledge that exists across all Federal Agencies. Please have your Agency Learning Officers or other designated staff contact Traci DiMartini at so we can work with you to share your courses on HRU!

Does your Agency know about HR University?

We are happy to come to your Agency lunch and learns, workshops or other training sessions to demo HR University to your staff.   You provide the audience and we will do the rest!

Attention: These Announcements May Contain Action Items and/or Deadlines. PLEASE READ!!
