A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Big Southern Butte is one of two domes rising from a sea of basalt near the center of the eastern Snake River Plain in Idaho. The butte is one of the largest volcanic domes in the world, but at 300,000 years old it is also one of the youngest. Hikers who trek to the 7,550-foot high summit are rewarded with spectacular panoramic views. Photo by Devin Englestead, BLM Upper Snake Wildlife Biologist.
First light at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. Established in November 22, 1939, the refuge has provided a critical stopover and wintering spot for thousands of sandhill cranes, geese and other waterfowl for 75 years. Bosque del Apache's sandhill crane population has multiplied from 18 birds in the 1840s to more than 20,000 birds today. Photo by Kim Hang Dessoliers (www.sharetheexperience.org).
Before you can begin to telework, and before you sign a telework agreement, both the employee and supervisor are required by law to complete telework-specific training. This training is free and takes about 30 minutes. In addition, DOI policy requires that you complete the annual Federal Information Systems Security Awareness (FISSA) training prior to signing an agreement. Once you complete the telework-specific training, you do not have to repeat the training again. You must complete FISSA training annually.
All the necessary training classes are available through DOI Learn. Once you log into DOI Learn, search the catalog for “telework”. The mandatory courses are titled “Telework 101 for Employee” and “Telework 101 for Supervisors.” Please take the appropriate course. Other courses on telework are available on DOI Learn and you may wish to take these elective courses, but you are not required to do so.
