Learning & Development Training
Human Resource Management (AHR)
Self-development includes those activities in which individuals take personal
responsibility for their own learning. These include:
This training can be college courses, lectures, conferences,
short courses, etc. The agency is supportive of employee's self-development
efforts and will accommodate employee's work schedules for educational
endeavors when operationally possible. Additionally, when the agency budget
permits, employees may be able to apply for tuition reimbursement for job
related programs. Consult with your local training officer. (See FAPM
College Credit for Life Experience. Many colleges give college credit
to adults for their life experience. Credit is based on an evaluation of
your life experiences. Credits can also be earned by taking college course
equivalency examinations. Your local college or university can give you
information on such programs.
College Credit for FAA Training. Over 200 FAA courses have
been evaluated by the American Council on Education. Your local college
or university will tell whether they accept ACE credit recommendations.
This booklet also offers information on degree programs which combine independent
study, credit recommendations, course equivalency examinations, and other
individually tailored self-paced methods to earning a degree.
Participation in Professional Organizations
Professional organizations afford an opportunity for the exchange of practical
information with colleagues in and outside the government. Interaction
with others sharing occupational and/or avocational interests can contribute
to professional growth. (See FAPM

Quality Circles, etc., provides experience in problem solving, data gathering,
group dynamics, team work, and communications.
