Matthew Fleharty posted a topic in Contracting WorkforceI'm drafting some thoughts/recommendations on improving training for the contracting workforce and I'd like to solicit input from those of you who frequent these forums. Specifically, I'd like to know what each of you think are the "breakdown activities" for our workforce. "Breakdown activities" are defined as those "tasks that differentiate high and low performers." The term comes from an article in Harvard Business Review that I read last month - for those of you interested in the complete article, you can read it here: To Better Train Workers, Figure Out Where They Struggle. Thanks in advance for any input!
This may be a question for my specific organization, but I'll see if any of you will be able to answer. I'm converting to a full-time Contract Specialist position in a couple of weeks. I started as a co-op in mid-June of 2011. Here are my questions: 1) Am I allowed to take DAWIA training immediately (i.e.: CON-090)? I thought I had recieved information stating that you must be an 1102 for at least 1 year before starting the DAWIA training. 2) Would there be value in taking CON-090 as soon as I can (to help with learning the position)? 3) (and this is the main question...) Are you required to sign a contract that says if you don't complete the program, you will be required to reimburse the government for tuition? In other words, if I sign on as a full-time 1102 and then decide mid-way through the 3-year training program that I wanted to switch to a non-1102 position, would I be required to pay tuition back? Thanks for your help!
