: .Training Classified as Non-Government
SWashington, D. C. 20415
July 3, 1980
Heads of Departments and Independent Establishments:



1. The training law authorizes the President (in 5 U.S.C. 4102(b)) to grant exceptions,
S:/ in the public interest, to provisions of that law. The President delegated this
authority to the Office of Personnel Management by Executive Order 11348.

: 2. The Office of Personnel Management is exercising its exception authority in
simplifying the processing of instances of training which have both Government and
f non-Government elements. Training having both Government and non-Government elements
is, under certain conditions spelled out in an amendment to the training regulations
(Attachment 1) and in an amendment to the Federal Personnel Manual chapter on
Straining (Attachment 2), exempted from the constraints in paragraph 3 of this letter.

3. For training covered by the exceptions set forth in the Attachments to this letter,
agencies will no longer be required to: (1) process waivers for employees with less
than one year continuous service (5 U.S.C. 4106(a)(2)); (2) record time in
non-Government training toward the restriction of not more than one year of
non-Government training in ten years of service (5 U.S.C. 4106(a)(3)); (3) monitor
the total time employees spend in non-Government training to be sure that it does not
exceed 1 percent of personnel (5 U.S.C. 4106(a)(1)); and (4) execute continued
service agreements (5 U.S.C. 4108(a)).

4. The agency will still be required to (1) determine the need to utilize a
non-Government facility; (2) meet the requirements for selecting a non-Government
facility; (3) ascertain the suitability of the non-Government facility; (4) report
the cost of non-Government training; and (5) determine the availability of other
qualified employees before training an employee in a non-Government facility.

5. The reporting requirements for the Central Personnel Data File are not changed in any
'-, way by these exceptions for training which has both Government and non-Government
elements.

(The following section is added to part 410.)


410.510 Exceptions to the constraints on the usage of non-Government
training.

When training meets two of the following conditions, then the agency is
excepted from counting the time spent in such training toward the
constraints in 5 U.S.C. 4106(a)(1), 5 U.S.C. 4106(a)(2) and 5 U.S.C.
4106(a)(3) and from the requirement in 5 U.S.C. 4108(a):

(a) Conducted by civilian or military personnel of the Government acting
in their official capacities; or

(b) Held on property owned or substantially controlled by (rented by or
loaned to) the Government; or

CHAPTER 410. TRAINING




(The following section is added to chapter 410.)


5-4. LIMITATIONS AND WAIVERS

5-4.d. Exceptions to the limitations.

(1) When training meets two of the following conditions then the agency
is excepted from counting the time spent in such training towards the con-
straints in 5 U.S.C. 4106(a)(1), (2) and (3):

(a) Conducted by civilian or military personnel of the Government acting
in their official capacities; or

(b) Held on property owned or substantially controlled by (rented by or
loaned to) the Government; or

(c) Controlled by the Government in terms of general level, coverage,
content and requirements for participation.


(2) In the case where one element is Government, one is non-Government
and the third is split, then each section of a course must be classified
separately and subject to the relevant limitations. For example, the
Government controls a 40 hour course given at a University and 20 hours of
lectures are given by university personnel. Those 20 hours must be
counted as non-Government training subject to all regulations and
conditions of the law.

(3) Each phase of a multi-phase training program should be classified
separately if both Government and non-Government facilities are used in
the program and subject to the relevant limitations. For example, if an
internship program involves training in a Government agency during the day
and training at a non-Federal school at night, each of those distinct
phases of the program should be classified separately. Similarly, if a
3-year training program for a group of engineers includes as one of its
phases an academic year of full-time attendance at a non-Federal school,
that phase should be classified separately. On the other hand if a
3-month training program is a unit program with no separate phases, the
program should be classified as a unit.
