Agency Group Training

The Travel Training branch will conduct any class it offers to a group formed by an agency at the agency's site of choice. Students may come from their own organization or join other federal, state, or local government agencies to fill a class.

GSA will also customize any course for an organization or develop a new course to meet an agency's special requirements.

Note: Courses listed under the regularly scheduled Instructor-Led Training (ILT) can be offered as a Group Special. Courses can be customized to tailor the agency's specific training needs. Contact the Travel Training Branch for more information!
