Rein In Runaway On-line Mandatory Trainings

Every new mandatory training further saps the workforce productivity, and indiscriminately wastes more and more total effort. It is far too easy to make a training "mandatory," and too tempting by their creators to make them overly burdensome. For several years now, annual IT security training for anyone with a computer in HHS has required completion of 15 individual modules. There have been mandatory trainings in 508... more »

Training Redundancy

When an employee works for a military organization (as a reservist, for example) certain mandatory training is required and is accessed in a specific database (perhaps for that service, such as the Air Force). If that same military employee is also a federal civil servant for another organization, they will have many of the same mandatory training requirements and they will access that identical training requirement... more »
