Training For Managers and Supervisors

As Supervisors and Managers working for the State of North Carolina, we are expected to lead our employees and our teams toward optimum performance.  Many of the skills we need to accomplish this task can be learned and you have access to many of these programs!  The Talent Management Division offers multiple courses to aide in your growth and development as a Supervisor and Manager.

We encourage you to review this information and identify which courses will provide some guidance, practice and experience for the varied situations you encounter in your role.  Often these course compliment existing courses your agency or university offers.  Please remember to make sure to discuss your training plan with your manager as well as your training director to ensure you are aware of every learning and development opportunity that could help make you successful.

Mandatory Training

Please be aware that this list of mandated training programs may not reflect training required by all occupations, jobs, positions, agencies or universities. This list reflects general mandated training requirements that affect all state agencies and universities, based on statutes and state policies. The availability of the courses listed below are through the Office of State Human Resources. However, your agency may have in-house training available to you that satisfies the requirements. Please check with your agency's training department.

If you are required to attend training, or if your agency or university requires training that is not on this list, it does not mean the training is unimportant or unnecessary. It may be training specific to the agency’s or university’s needs.

This is a guide to help agencies and universities determine if their employees are receiving the training required by statutes and state policies.

Please keep in mind that this may not be an inclusive list.
