Training Descriptions

Webinars (30 minutes - Monthly)

One of our analysts presents on an information collection related topic on a monthly basis. These webinars vary by month and usually focus on what is most relevant at the time. We also take into account what our Action Officers and Information Management Control Officers are asking for and what is pertinent to them. Webinar times can be found in the Newsletter or on this website under “OIM Training Classes.”
