Getting Started with the Training Program


To get the full benefit from our training, participates must register for the classes that are specially designed for their employee classification. We are available to answer questions concerning training dates, classes, and provide and/or forward training registration forms from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

County employees wishing to register for training classes should contact their immediate supervisor before signing up.

Outside agencies wishing to register employees should contact Pamela R. Ambles at (770) 477-3239.


To maximize training opportunities for employees awaiting a training seat, we request cancellation notice as soon as possible for those employees that will not be attending as registered.


Our training will normally begin promptly and end in accordance with established schedule. We suggest arriving at the training site at least ten minutes in advance. Once at the site, ensure that your name is annotated on the training sign-in-sheet. Also, arriving early will allow you to look through the materials in advance and give you a few minutes to relax and get ready for a terrific learning experience. We will provide a break during the training so you'll have the opportunity to keep in touch with the office and/or make any personal calls without missing a moment of your training.


We do not provide a meal, but we will allow you a lunch break. The instructor will inform you of the time you are to break and the time to return. Many of our participants use the time to get to know other attendees better, talk about what they've learned, and network over a sandwich.


Most of our training is conducted at the Human Resources Training Center. There are other times when training will be conducted on the site of the requesting department. The County provides free parking for employees attending training held on county facilities.

New Employee Orientation Training

Orientation begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. You will be released for an hour break for lunch at 12:00 noon.
