Introduction

We are excited to announce the 2016-2017 training schedule being offered by the grantees of the Training Program for Federal TRIO Programs!

The Training Program for Federal TRIO Programs (Training Program) is designed to assist TRIO personnel in improving the operation and success of the TRIO projects. Whether you are new to the staff of a project funded under the Federal TRIO Programs or have been involved with a TRIO project for many years, there may be a training session that can assist you in doing your job more effectively. We encourage you to look at the information provided here and to share it with your colleagues.

In order to assist you in determining which training would work best for you, we have organized the training schedule by "priority." The priorities for training were legislated by Congress and determined by the Department of Education (Department) to be the most appropriate in meeting the needs of TRIO personnel. The Department awarded grants to organizations and institutions of higher education to conduct the training sessions. These organizations and institutions have developed training that is appropriate for all levels of personnel and for personnel working in every TRIO program. We are hopeful that you will find a priority training that will suit you and your colleagues.

To register for the trainings, please use the links provided for the registration and/or contact the person listed for the organization or institution conducting that training. The Department of Education cannot register participants for the trainings. We have listed the registration links beside each training and contact information for each Training Program grant. Each organization and institution conducting the training has a Web site where you will find additional information on the individual training session.

Four important things to remember:

  1. The trainings listed are being paid for with Federal TRIO Programs' resources.
  2. You may only register for one training per priority; this includes on-line training.
  3. It is imperative that if you register for training that you actually attend the training or give ample notification that you will not be there. We will ask for a list of no-shows from the training organizations and these no-shows will risk not being able to attend another TRIO-sponsored training event.
  4. Priority #6 is for NEW DIRECTORS with less than two years’ experience. If you believe you have an exception to this requirement, please confer with the contacts listed.

The schedule outlines the contacts and registration information.
