RESPONSIBILITIES OF AGENCY CPTP COORDINATORS
The Comprehensive Public Training Program has a network of over 300 coordinators in state agencies. These coordinators play a vital role in the program. They serve as two-way communicators responsible for getting information about the training program to the appropriate people in their agencies and for passing information back to the CPTP about specific training needs of their agencies.
In order to function effectively, the coordinator performs the following activities:
1. Participates in the development of the agency's plan for using the CPTP and fully understands how the CPTP fits into the agency's overall training strategy.
2. Understands the CPTP curriculum and the agency's training plan in order to counsel employees on classes appropriate for their current positions.
3. Reviews training needs of the agency. CPTP staff are available to assist the agency in prioritizing their training needs.
4. Publicizes the training courses offered by CPTP in the agency through written correspondence, meetings with managers, and face-to-face contacts.
5. Assists in the development of internal procedures for making special training requests, initiates contact with the CPTP concerning these requests, participates in discussions concerning the content of special classes, and makes arrangements for presentations of these classes.
6. Attends CPTP Coordinators' meetings, distributes the schedule of open classes, answers inquiries about classes and attendance eligibility, and processes registrations.
7. Participates in the development of internal procedures for approving applications for classes and signs applications to indicate that internal procedures have been followed.
8. Keeps CPTP training records for the agency.
