Government Employees Training Act (GETA)

The training law (5 USC 4100 aka Government Employees Training
Act - GETA) contains the following broad definition of training:



Training means the process of providing for and making available to an employee, and placing or enrolling the employee in, a planned, prepared, and coordinated program, course, curriculum, subject, system, or routine of instruction or education, in scientific, professional, technical, mechanical, trade, clerical, fiscal, administrative, or other fields which will improve individual and organizational performance and assist in achieving the agency's mission and performance goals.


The function of development relies on a system which measures the gap between the requirements of jobs and the capabilities of the people who perform the work. Development is interwoven throughout and supports all Human Resource Management life cycle functions.
