Zoom Training Strongly Encouraged for PDS Participants
PDS strongly encourages participants to take a 30-minute course, Tips and Tricks for Zoom, prior to attending a virtual live instructor-led course. PDS offers the class twice a month on the first Thursday from 1-1:30 p.m. and the third Monday from 9-9:30 a.m. It is designed for those taking PDS virtual courses or anyone interested in learning the functions of Zoom. Please email PDS@iowa.gov to reserve your space. 

Virtual PDS Instructor-Led Courses
Many of our classroom courses have been updated to be delivered in an online live format. The courses will run as scheduled and the normal cancellation policy of a 14 day notice applies. Performance & Development Solutions limits the class size to 18 participants on a first-come, first-served basis. For classes with more than 18 people enrolled, new dates will be added and we will work with participants to reschedule as needed. See the latest course listings at https://das.iowa.gov/node/8685.

Our on-demand courses can be completed at any time. Many of these courses are policy related and may be required training. See these class listings at On Demand Course Options.
