Career Planning and the IDP

The purpose of this course is to help you in your career planning.

The Service has a continuous learning policy (Service Manual 231 FW 1) which states that "Supervisors/managers will provide all permanent full-time employees appropriate continuous learning opportunities, with a minimum goal of 40 hours annually."

The use of an effective Individualized Development Plan is one of the primary tools you can use to help ensure your career plan is met.

This course will help you create a good working IDP.
