Course Objectives and Faculty

Course Objectives: 

According to the Instructions to Federal Agencies for EEO Management Directive-715, "Barrier identification and elimination is the process by which federal agencies uncover, examine and remove barriers to equal participation at all levels of the workforce."  The instructions define a barrier as "an agency policy, principle or practice that limits or tends to limit employment opportunities for members of a particular sex, race or ethnic background or based on an individual's disability status."  Barrier removal is vital to achieving the common goal of making the federal government a model employer.

The PDTI Barrier Analysis course will assist participants in conducting the analytical work necessary to achieve the goal of equal opportunity in the federal sector by creating a barrier-free work environment where qualified applicants and employees may compete at all levels.
