“NPS Fundamentals is a genuine investment in our agency's most valuable resource - its employees! I strongly advocate every eligible [new] NPS employee attend this crucial, foundational training…”
Director Jon Jarvis


NPS Fundamentals fosters a workforce committed to achieving the NPS mission and promoting an inclusive culture by bringing together employees from across the service for a shared learning experience that serves as a springboard for knowledge of NPS operations, employee empowerment, social learning, and professional and personal growth.

We use a blended learning format which combines classroom, field, and online learning activities to provide foundational learning opportunities for new NPS employees. 

You can find specific information on the program on the Common Learning Portal or at our NPS Fundamentals Site.
