Attention all DOI employees! The Annual Ethics Training online course is now open on DOI Talent and is also offered LIVE in person or via Zoom Webinar. This year’s online course is an innovative 3-episode radio drama, As the Ethics World Turns! You only need to complete one course – either the online course or the live course – to fulfill this important ethics requirement.
Federal law mandates that DOI employees who file an annual financial disclosure report complete Annual Ethics Training. In addition, certain other employees may be required to complete Annual Ethics Training because of their duties and responsibilities. All DOI employees are welcome to complete Annual Ethics Training, but please note that employees of certain DOI Bureaus or Offices may have to complete alternate or supplemental training to meet their mandatory ethics training requirements. Please consult with your Deputy Ethics Counselor if you have any questions about whether As the Ethics World Turns will meet your annual ethics training requirement.
As the Ethics World Turns is now active on DOI Talent, and you may complete the course when it is most convenient for you!
To access the online course, follow these instructions:
If you prefer, you can attend the LIVE version of As the Ethics World Turns, which will be offered in-person in the John Muir Room of the Main Interior Building (MIB), and via Zoom Webinar for remote attendees. The LIVE training course will be held at 2:00 p.m. ET on the following dates:
No prior registration is required if you decide to attend the LIVE training in person. Just come to the John Muir Room in the MIB, sign in, and your attendance will be recorded.
