Minimum enrollment for BHR software training courses in Pierre is three. Minimum enrollment for BHR Professional Development courses is ten. Decisions to close courses due to low enrollment are made at least one week prior to the class, so enroll early!

Effective October 1, 2002, BHR ceased contracting with specific training sites to provide computer training classes for state employees outside of Pierre. Employees who need software training are able to attend training at any available training center, with the approval of their supervisor.

Please Note: Non-state employees will be charged a fee to attend Bureau of Human Resources supervisory training courses. For all other courses you will pay the same fee you see on the class webpage. Please contact BHR Training at 773.3461 if you have any questions.
Employees can cancel their training registration by emailing BHR Training Registration or by calling 605.773.3461.

The agency director will receive a list of no-shows and the fees billed on a monthly basis.
