DHHS Training

Making sure that you are adequately trained to do your job is a priority here at DHHS. If you need certain courses during your probationary period to master your job, those courses are usually taught by qualified division or institution trainers. Your supervisor will let you know what mandatory courses will be scheduled for you. You may be required to participate in mandatory training to achieve specific skill levels during your trainee or probationary period. Employees who do not successfully complete these courses may be terminated during their probationary period.

Other general skills, computer classes and supervisory or management courses are offered through other resources. Your supervisor or division/institution may offer you a variety of different training options. This may be working with another more experienced employee or working through a training manual. Our department also offers a number of online courses that you can take from a desktop or home computer. Your supervisor will also review any developmental areas you will need to work on as a part of your annual Workplan.
