New Supervisor Development Program
What We Do
The New Supervisor Development Program (NSDP) is an inter-bureau course (NPS, FWS, BLM) that gives new supervisors the knowledge and skills necessary to perform their jobs during the first 12 months of their initial appointment to a permanent supervisory position. The program content focuses on the 40 hours of supervisory training outlined in OPM guidance (5CFR: 412.202). This program does not include the required 4 hours of EEO training as that must be completed independently.
