About FDA

Total number of attendees who completed the training events in the month

Dictionary: FDA recognizes that in order to stay current with rapidly evolving science and health information, it must institute a strong training culture across the agency. This measure tracks total training attendance throughout the fiscal year. If an individual attends multiple training events/courses in a single month, the individual is counted more than once in order to deliver a depiction of overall training attendance. Training events are categorized by technical, management/leadership, professional development or administrative training events, and are determined by the audience they serve (e.g., a scientist attending a writing skills course would be grouped under professional development while a writer attending a writing skills course would be grouped under technical).

Number of employees who completed the professional/technical development training events during the month

The total number of individuals attending professional development and technical training events/courses in a month is included in this measure. Professional development training is defined as events/courses that focus on attaining skills and knowledge for personal development and career advancement (e.g., communication, computer applications, certifications/licenses, etc.). Technical training is defined as curricula that focus on refreshing and improving specialized skills that FDA personnel need in order to maintain a current workforce. The definition of “technical” varies with job function; FDA has a workforce with groups specializing in highly specific disciplines (i.e. toxicology, policy, engineering, etc.).
