Cancellation 

Cancellations may be made up until the day of the class, but if attendance is not canceled, the Department will be held responsible for full payment of registration fees. 

Classes may be rescheduled due to low numbers of enrollees or inclement weather. The Governor’s Inclement Weather Policy is followed by TSS OPM Training on any class days affected by inclement weather. If a class is canceled due to low enrollment or inclement weather, enrollees will be enrolled for the next scheduled class or a later date if more convenient. No additional fees will be charged.

Special Training Programs

TSS OPM Training encourages all employees to participate in regularly scheduled classes. However, a Department/Division may request a particular program be scheduled for only the employees of that specific Department/Division, provided that the request meets a specific need that cannot be met using the regular course schedule or is necessary because of specific personnel issues related to the Department/Division.

All special training programs must be approved by the TSS OPM Training Manager. Special training programs must be courses offered in the regular course catalog, unless otherwise approved by the TSS OPM Training Manager.
