Mandatory Supervisory Courses

With the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, effective immediately the Office of Employee Development open-enrollment classes are canceled and the remaining Class 17 sessions of the Nevada Certified Public Manager Program are postponed until further notice in the interest of employees’ health and welfare. 


The Mandatory Supervisory Courses (MSC) offer the State of Nevada supervisors and managers the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills in regards to the laws (NRS), regulations (NAC), State Administrative Manual (SAM), procedures and forms that govern the classified service employee administrative processes.

    These courses can be used to satisfy the mandatory training requirements as listed in NRS 284.338 and NAC 284.498(1). These courses are presented in either an online format or in the classroom, depending on the specific course and the section that owns it.

      NAC 284.498(3) requires these supervisory/managerial classes to be refreshed / completed every 3 years. The required courses are listed below and can also be found in NEATS or the regulation cited previously.

        Supervisors and managers are encouraged to become acquainted with the course descriptions by reviewing them on NEATS (Nevada Employee Action and Timekeeping System). Among the many features of NEATS is the ability to not only preview and enroll in classes, but to also review and print your training transcripts as you need those records.
