Citywide Training & Development

Citywide Learning & Development (L&D) is the central source of training within New York City government for managerial, clerical, professional and technical employees. Through our Citywide Training Center (CTC), L&D offers agencies a full curriculum of open enrollment courses, workshops and seminars to meet the training and development needs of City employees at all levels. L&D faculty and consultants are drawn from government, universities, and the private sector. These trainers bring a wealth of experience to their courses, helping address employees’ skill attainment and agency issues and situations. Many programs and courses are delivered at the CTC facility, and the majority of L&D’s programs can be customized to meet agency-specific objectives. Additionally, L&D houses the Citywide IT Training Program which provides access to over 200 high-quality technical training courses and 60 certifications from industry leaders. As well, our Organizational and Executive Development programs help City managers and leaders fine-tune their current skills and enhance their knowledge through cohort programs, networking opportunities, and best practices discussions.

NOTE: The Citywide Training Center is closed for in-person instructor-led classes. Computer-based training and live-webinars continue to be available. For information, please contact us at
