OPM Training is a division of the Office of Personnel Management that provides a centralized, statewide program to meet the professional development needs of all state departments and employees. The focus of OPM Training is to improve job performance and professional satisfaction through a curriculum of programs and courses designed to enhance skills and knowledge which will benefit both staff members and state departments.
Registering for Courses
The EASE Learning tile is no longer available; however, employees may access OPM training courses and materials through learn.arkansas.gov.
All courses are held at the Riverdale Conference and Training Center.
Riverdale Conference and Training Center
Rooms for training events and meetings are available by reservation. The Riverdale Conference and Training Center is located in the Department of Commerce, One Commerce Way, Building 4, Little Rock, AR. Reservations may be made by calling 501-682-1846.
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 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
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 OPM Training Manager. Special training programs must be courses offered in the regular course catalog, unless otherwise approved by the OPM Training Manager.
