Planning for Success

Planning for Success, the Sonoma County Employee Training Program, provides employees with opportunities to develop or enhance the competencies required to succeed at every level of employment within the County: foundational, supervisorial, managerial, and executive-level staff.  You may want to work towards a certificate to enhance your skills to prepare you for the next step in your County career or you can take just a few classes.  

Whether you are interested in obtaining a certificate to enhance your skill set to prepare you for the next step in your County career or you prefer to take just a few classes, the Sonoma County Employee Training Program has you set up for success!

We will be adding courses throughout the year.  Be on the look-out for email fliers announcing new classes, additional dates for current courses, and other exciting program enhancements as well as late notice, “space still available” announcements for existing classes in which there are still seats available. 

Registration for Classes

Registration is subject only to class availability and your division and department approval requirements.  A few courses have prerequisites and some are limited to registration by specific staff levels but, overall you can take any class at any time.

There are no fees for attending County training classes.  

All class registration is through SCORS (Sonoma County On-line Registration System). If you have questions about SCORS or accessing your account in SCORS, please review the FAQs in Appendix A of this catalog.
