State of Iowa Performance & Development Solutions (PDS) presents informative seminars and programs for State employees at all levels, including those who are new to State Government, supervisory staff, executive management, and professional/technical staff.

Some classes will have a fee for attendance, while many courses are included at no additional cost as part of your agency’s training utility fee. Browse through the website and read details on our Training Courses webpage.

Enrollment is easy! You’ll need to complete the course registration form and include the appropriate approval signatures. Once completed, return the form to your departmental Training Liaison. Contact information for Training Liaisons may be found here or, if your organization does not have a Training Liaison, you may submit your registration form directly to PDS@iowa.gov.
