Effective Training Location Leaders (000134)


The job of a training location leader is critical to the development of a strong NRCS workforce.  Employees in these positions must be technically sound and possess the additional skills for training and developing new employees.

The Effective Training Location Leaders training program is a multi-part program.  Your servicing administrative office will provide any classroom training associated with this web portion or any supplemental activities. 

This Web portion is designed to provide a uniform foundation for the classroom training.  It is understood that each state or administrative unit in NRCS may have specific requirements and instructions for training location leaders.

This Web portion provides only an introduction to the important issues associated with being a training location leader.  It is not a complete training program if used alone.


Upon completion of the Web portion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to become an effective training location leader.

Upon completion of the classroom portion (depending on the design) of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Describe and meet any state specific requirements for training location leaders

  • Correctly complete all state specific administrative forms and activities associated with facilitating the development of trainees
