Training & Development

CPS HR offers a comprehensive range of career development courses for both organizations and individuals. The CPS HR experts can even assess your current training plan and recommend a strategy to improve your team’s success in the public sector.

CPS HR has been delivering training since 2004 to those who work in public sector organizations, including federal, state and local agencies, boards, commissions and non-profits. Our curriculum is specifically designed for public sector employees. With more than 150 soft skills courses, CPS HR supports employee development by providing:

  • A professional learning environment
  • Practical materials
  • Experienced instructors
  • Interactive and applied learning experiences
  • Nationwide training

Courses focus on the skills, knowledge and competencies employees need to succeed in today’s public-sector workplace. In addition to the individual open enrollment classes that we offer at CPS HR facilities, we can deliver:

  • Customized or off-the-shelf classes at your workplace. This option provides for greater cost-savings and convenience for employees.
  • Hosted training (an “open enrollment”) at your site.
  • Virtual training. This is a great option for geographically distributed staff.

Career development is a continuous path, not a series of isolated moments. That’s why CPS HR has developed its courses as milestones along that path, so that you and your team members can stay focused on the strategic big picture of your careers.



Do your supervisors have all the skills necessary to be successful in today’s workplace? Supervisors today have to be in command of a wide array of knowledge, skills and competencies to lead their teams and drive organizational excellence. Our supervisory training programs help supervisors succeed at the personal, team and organizational level.

According to Gallup research, supervisors/managers account for up to 70% of variance in employee engagement. Supervisors/managers are most effective when they can create an environment where employees feel motivated to do their best.
