LER On-Demand Virtual Trainings via milBook

The Office of Labor and Employee Relations (LER) presents trainings in support of our ongoing effort to bring relevant and reliable developmental opportunities to our customers.  Our live training sessions are recorded and made available on milBook.  This platform is a part of milSuite, which provides a collection of social business tools for Department of Defense (DoD) personnel.  Users access the milBook site with a Common Access Card (CAC) to watch recorded training videos on their government laptop anytime and anywhere, meaning users can take control of their own learning at a time and place that suits them.  Please, visit our milBook page to take advantage of these training opportunities:
