Classroom Electives

CAPS offers an ever-expanding roster of face-to-face classes of interest to employees, supervisors and managers. Subject matter ranges from productivity to communication and conflict management, and may include topics on how state government works, HR compliance, planning for retirement in the state system, work-life balance and stress, and addressing violence in the workplace. Topics change with demand and availability.

Classes taught by CAPS or other state employees are most often at no charge for employees of state government.  Participants must be approved for time away from their work assignments.  Other courses taught by external experts may have a tuition fee which must be approved by the enrollees department before enrollment is official.  Some classes may have a materials cost connected to them.  These will be invoiced back to the department of the participant.

Important:  State employee's who require special accomodation for trainings to be accessible (mobility, vision, hearing, etc...) please contact marlene.poirier@vermont.gov  in a separate email after registering in order to allow sufficient time to make arrangements. 

Other government employees (non-state) may apply to attend CAPS classes and will be approved on the basis of availability. In most cases, there will be a tuition rate. To apply from outside Vermont State Government, contact our registration desk at 828-2751 or marlene.poirier@vermont.gov
