Two Options to Register:

Sponsored Classes
Leadership Intensives classes have been coordinated and scheduled with regions and headquarters offices to prepare for fiscal year 2018 classes. To enroll in a sponsored class, listed below, employees must talk to their supervisor and request training through DOI Learn. All training requests in DOI Learn will be wait listed until approved by the sponsoring regional/headquarters office.

Open Enrollment Classes
