Online Classes

The Center for Achievement in Public Service offers a range of online classes through various partners.  These classes are available to all state employees, covering a broad range of topics for employee development, safety and health, and other more job specific areas.  Many of the classes are offered without charge and allow for employees to access classes from their desk.  ​You may need to use Firefox or Chrome to open online trainings.  

We are currently partnering with the following eLearning platforms:
