Training Plan Template

Creating a training plan is a critical part of planning ahead and reaching your professional goals. These materials can help you get started on a long-term training plan.

All employees should have a 1-3 year training plan that outlines their professional development goals and how they plan to get there. Some training events are only offered every 2-3 years, so keeping a long-range plan is also critical to keep you on track and not miss an opportunity.

We recommend employees budget about 40 hours of continuing education hours in a 3 year period. That keeps it manageable, while also keeping you relevant in your area of expertise.

The following training template was designed to help you get started. Work with a mentor, manager, or on your own to outline those modules, courses, training events, conferences, webinars, and meetings that will help advance your knowledge.

This Training Plan Template will be updated often as course requirements and numbers change. Check in every 1-3 years as you create your annual and 3-year training plans.

Be sure to get your District manager and/or supervisor to sign on to your training plan to ensure you are properly supported. Your professional development is a benefit to all!
