We’re On the Move!

The NIH Training Center (NIHTC) is moving the Rockledge facility to Three White Flint North in Rockville. We’re excited about our new home, which is adjacent to the White Flint Metro Station! Having our facility in a well-connected area of Rockville means you can enjoy a top-quality training class and a wide range of walkable lunch options. Our newly designed training space will also feature the latest in audio-visual technology to enhance your learning experience -- whether you are an on-site or remote learner. You’ll be able to reach us by shuttle, metro, and car. Note - the NIHTC second location on campus in Natcher (Building 45) remains unchanged.

Once construction accelerates on the new NIHTC at White Flint, we’ll share more updates here. We will offer FAQs based on what YOU, our customers, would like to know. If you have any questions, please submit them to: NIHTrainingCenter@nih.gov. Rest assured if you are taking a class with us around this transition, you’ll receive ample guidance on where to go and how to get there -- as usual.

Shuttle - Coming Soon...
