Planning and Accountability - Training

Training & Development are important in building knowledge, skills, and competencies for the workforce. The Planning & Accountability team provides Training for the Components, Functional Communities, and HR Specialists. We work collaboratively with the customers, develops course curriculum and conduct training workshops.

World Wide Human Resources Training Event (WWHRTE)

DoD originally established the Worldwide Human Resources Conference to allow DoD enterprise HR leaders the opportunity to gather annually and share and learn about best practices, plans, programs, and initiatives. DCPAS took a strategic pause from hosting the conference in 2011 and reestablished it in 2016 as a biennial training event, now referred to as the Worldwide Human Resources Training Event (WWHRTE) in Southbridge, MA. The WWHRTE is a symposium-style training program delivered by subject matter experts across many traditional and emerging HR fields. Additionally, the event facilitates critical interpersonal networking, which promotes informal learning.

Workforce Data Training

Planning and Accountability Directorate staff have created a "Workforce Analytics 101" training package:

  • Strategic Workforce Planning
  • Requirements (Force Structure Development / Manpower Process)
  • DoD Workforce Data
  • Demographics & Demographic Trend Analysis
  • Gains & Losses (Trends and Analysis)
  • Incentives(Trends and Analysis)
  • Forecasting

Exercise sets for Demographics, Gains & Losses, Incentives, and Forecasting provide attendees the opportunity to apply what they've learned in each class. A robust and comprehensive Capstone Exercise replicates the analysis processes used in actual Strategic Workforce Planning activities.

We developed this training package in response to our customers' first learning priority and we’ve delivered it to our Functional Community and Component customers and to Department of Army Career Program professionals. The training package is scalable. The Planning and Accountability staff will provide this training at your location or here at the Mark Center in Alexandria, VA on request.

The training materials are located at MilSuite:
