Indiana State Personnel Department

SPD > Training Opportunities State Employee Training

The State Personnel Department offers a variety of training courses throughout the year to supplement agency specific training. In compliance with state and federal legal requirements, we partner with Business and Legal Reports (BLR) to offer authoritative content and practical, easy-to-use tools. All of the BLR trainings are computer based and easily launched through PeopleSoft ELM.

You can review the course catalogs by logging directly into ELM  and follow this path: ELM Training/Main Menu/Self Service/Browse Catalog or by viewing our current computer based catalog or instructor-led training library. These BLR courses are available through June 30, 2016. You must complete these trainings before the deadline since access to the trainings will be removed at that time.
