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
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
