Government Closure or Delay

Guidelines to follow

The NIH Training Center makes every effort to deliver classes as scheduled throughout a variety of weather conditions. In some cases, however, we must close or delay classes in accordance with advisories affecting our offices. In case of any delay or closure of an open enrollment class, students will be notified by email prior to the class's start time.

Our class policy follows the NIH Operating Status per OPM’s guidance. NIHTC encourages all class participants to monitor their NIH e-mail for NIHTC notices, as well as the NIH and OPM Operating Status websites for necessary information.
