Employees who register for classes April-September 2010 still will register for CES courses at the Civilian Human Resources Training Application System (CHRTAS) Web site at https://www.atrrs.army.mil/channels/chrtas.

However, effective Nov. 18, they noticed a change when registering for courses with distributed Learning and resident phases. Those courses are the Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced courses.

Instead of reserving a seat in the class and completing the distributed learning (DL) prior to attendance, employees must complete the distributed Learning phase of the course prior to reserving a seat in the resident portion. Those enrolled in the third and fourth quarter classes will have 365 days to complete DL versus the prior 180 days. Following completion of the DL portion that must be documented in CHRTAS, students can then apply for resident portion of the course.

Individuals applying for the resident course only will be able to see classes 60 days out or greater, and the last class shown will be within 365 days from the DL completion date. Students with already approved reservations for resident courses will follow the linked registration process. They will not need to reapply for the DL course.

CES provides a foundation of quality education and professional development crucial for advancement and successful job performance as Army civilians make career choices.

CES also includes the Foundation Course, Continuing Education for Senior Leaders (CESL), Action Officers Development Course Supervisors (AODC), Supervisors Development Course (SDC), and Managers Development Course (MDC). The Foundation Course, AODC, SDC, and MDC are entirely distributed earning classes. The Basic Course is offered at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and the Intermediate and Advanced Courses and CESL are offered at Fort Belvoir, Va. Upcoming classes include:

Basic Course: Jan. 25- Feb. 5, with an application deadline of Nov. 26; Feb. 22-March 5, with an application deadline of Dec. 24; March 15-26, with an application deadline of Jan. 14; April 12-23, with an application deadline of Feb. 11; and May 3-14, with an application deadline of March 4.

Intermediate Course: Feb. 8-26, with an application deadline of Dec. 1; March 8-26, with an application deadline of Jan. 7; April 5-23, with an application deadline of Feb. 4; and May 10-28, with an application deadline of March 11.

Advanced Course: The remaining classes are Feb. 1-26, with an application deadline of Dec. 3; May 3-28, with an application deadline of March 4; and Aug. 9-Sept. 3, with an application deadline of June 10.

CESL: The remaining classes are Jan. 25-29, with an application deadline of Nov. 26; April 26-30, with an application deadline of Feb. 25; and Aug 2-6, with an application deadline of June 3.
