Regional Office Training -- Scheduled Courses and Training Slides

Basic Statutory Training

The Basic Statutory Training course covers the following subject matters:  meeting (including formal discussion, Weingarten and bypass); duty to bargain (including de minimis and "covered by"); interference and discrimination; scope of bargaining; information requests under the Statute; timeliness; and 7116(d).  In five of the regions the course is one day; in San Francisco, the course is presented over two days (duty to bargain, scope of bargaining and information requests are presented the second day); in Denver and Boston, registrations are for a two-day course.  To view the powerpoint slides for the Basic Statutory Training course, click on the links at the bottom of this page.

Advanced Statutory Training

The Advanced Statutory Training course is designed for those individuals who have knowledge of the principles covered in the Basic Statutory course.  The course builds upon the knowledge gained in the first course and provides the student with an opportunity to develop a more in-depth knowledge of collective bargaining and related topics.  The class format relies principally upon hypotheticals and interactive exercises.

Other Training Modules

Regions sometimes design particular training modules to meet the needs of the parties.  When this occurs, the chart below will describe the training session offered by the Region.
