An official website of the United States government

Dot gov

The .gov means it’s official.
Federal government websites often end in .gov or .mil. Before sharing sensitive information, make sure you’re on a federal government site.


The site is secure.
The https:// ensures that you are connecting to the official website and that any information you provide is encrypted and transmitted securely.

Onboarding schedule

This series of onboarding classes is designed to explain how we work and introduce you to organizational best practices. Some of these trainings take place in #TTS-classes, some are self-guided, and others are live (hangouts-based).

Most of these trainings are optional (with the exception of the Tech Portfolio class, which is required since it has critical legal, regulatory, and policy implications for your work). For the optional ones, if you have a conflicting team meeting or another commitment, prioritize that first! You can easily read a class chat log later.

About the schedule

This is a typical onboarding schedule, but the timing may shift based on when you’re hired and federal holidays, etc. Check out the TTS Classes Schedule in Google Calendar for exact times.

Week 1

In your first week, you’ll learn about the different parts of our organization, the tools that we use, the best sources for finding information, how to track your time, how to travel, and the most important legal and security requirements for working in the federal government as part of TTS.

Note: The titles below are linked to our handbook pages for each subject. Description links offer a more detailed look at what you’ll learn in each session.





This is a required course that includes a confirmation survey

Week 2

In your second week, you’ll learn about privacy best practices, how to get more involved, the culture of our org, and how we build websites.
