Career Development

The Department of Energy (DOE) offers a variety of learning and development programs to address employee needs throughout the continuum of knowledge and experience from entry-level employees to senior executives. The Office of Learning and Workforce Development can help you find the program that serves your needs.

These programs represent a major commitment by the DOE in an employee's career development. Most DOE organizational elements have a coordinator for these programs to ensure that applicants are given a fair opportunity to participate based on merit principles. The participants need to work with the program coordinators to complete the programs in a satisfactory manner, and that resources are available, especially where programs span more than one fiscal year. In addition, many of the career development programs require a Continued Service Agreement, where a participant agrees to work for the Department for a specified period after completing the training program. Use the links provided below for detailed information about each program.

NOTE: An agency can require an employee to sign a Continued Service Agreement for any and all courses funded by the Government.
