Which supervisory training course/program is right for me?

Main Content

The FEMA Career Development and Training Branch and FEMA Leader Development Council are working together to ensure all agency supervisors and managers meet their developmental obligations and have a quality learning experience.  This partnership is providing multiple opportunities for you to participate in that focus on building proficiency in competencies you need to successfully lead your organization.  As a FEMA supervisor or manager, you are obligated to meet statutory, department and agency requirements for training. 

The following information is provided to help you determine the appropriate course/program for you:

For all individuals hired or promoted into a supervisory role in FY12 and beyond:  You will be assigned to Fundamentals of Leadership, a one-year program that begins with an interactive orientation and includes Leadership Essentials, a 40-hour course, and Foundations of Leadership, a series of one-hour activities over the course of a year.  The program includes an initial baseline assessment and 360-assessment at the end of your first year.

For all individuals hired or promoted prior to FY12 who are located in the National Capital Region:  You are required to complete the HR for Supervisors course.  This will count towards your continual learning obligation.  Please contact Dynia Beaty at dynia.beaty@dhs.gov for a list of available dates and enrollment requirements.  The available courses will also be advertised in the FEMA Weekly Bulletin.
For all individuals located outside of the National Capital Region:  You are required to complete only the Leadership Essentials course within the Fundamentals of Leadership Program.  This will satisfy the continual learning obligation and the HR for Supervisors obligation.

For information on HR for Supervisors, please contact:  Dynia Beaty, 202-212-2084 or dynia.beaty@dhs.gov.

For information on the Fundamentals of Leadership Program, or the Leadership Essentials course, please email ldc@fema.dhs.gov.
