Plain language training for federal agencies
We schedule in-person classes on a first-come, first-serve basis, depending on trainer availability. We believe that in-person training is the best method and do not offer webinars or virtual classes. Please request training at least 3-6 months in advance. You must have a .gov or .mil email address to register.
If you are outside the DC metro area, do not request training unless you have your agency's approval to cover all related travel expenses for a trainer. We can offer fewer than 10 classes outside the DC metro area and will not consider any request that does not include a statement to that effect.
We do not have the resources to respond to requests that do not meet our basic requirements for requesting a class. If you are a contractor or if you are interested in a class for yourself (and not for your agency), our website includes other training resources that may meet your needs.
