The ACTEDS Training Catalog

General Administration and Management (CP-51)


Authorized expenses for CP 51 training will be funded by ACTEDS resources. Rental cars are not an authorized expense. This does not prohibit commands from funding rental cars. Commands will not be reimbursed for salaries and personal benefits for training participants or costs incurred through temporary backfill of the vacated position.

To be eligible for ACTEDS funding training employees must be a Department of the Army civilian for 3 years, assigned to a permanent position and have a fully successful performance rating.

ACTEDS funding is in accordance with ACTEDS funding strategy and funds are always subject to availability set forth by HQDA, G 3/5/7.

Careerists and supervisors are encouraged to propose competitive development opportunities for consideration.

Civilian Education System (CES)

The Civilian Education System (CES) is the foundation of the Army's leader development program for all Army Civilians, providing progressive and sequential education courses throughout their careers. CES is centrally funded by HQDA G-37/Training Directorate for most permanent Army Civilians, including but not limited to general schedule (GS), non-appropriated fund (NAF), local national (LN) and wage grade (WG) employees. CES leadership courses, or designated equivalent courses, are required for all Army Civilians. Employees should include attendance at the CES course for which they are eligible in their Individual Development Plans (IDP).

Employees are eligible to attend the CES course that is targeted at their grade level. GS-01 through GS-09 employees are eligible to attend the CES Basic Course; GS-10 through GS-12 employees are eligible to attend the CES Intermediate Course; and GS-13 through GS-15 employees are eligible to attend the CES Advanced Course. NOTE: All Army Civilians who were hired after 30 September 2006 are required to take the Foundation Course prior to enrolling in either of the CES courses.

More information on CES courses, as well as instructions on how to enroll can be found on the Civilian Training and Leader Development website at
