Remote Participation

Remote Participation in On-Site Training

The NIH Training Center is pleased to accommodate off-site NIH employees for whom travel to our instructor-led classes is physically impossible or highly cost-prohibitive.

To request remote participation, gain approval from your supervisor and then contact the NIH Training Center at least 12 business days prior to the course.

NIH employees whose duty location is in the Washington Metropolitan area and do not face other extenuating circumstance are not eligible to participate in Remote Participation. They will benefit from the full interactivity of our in-person classes and maximize their learning on-site.

To accommodate remote participants not physically in the classroom, we require technical staff to support on-site remote setup so that remote participants are still able to experience the classroom setting. The cost of this support is minimal in comparison to typical travel costs and provides a cost-effective alternative for off-site NIH employees. Additional costs to your IC will be incurred beyond the regular course registration tuition.

Not every on-site training opportunity is recommended for remote participation. If you have questions, please contact the NIH Training Center at 301-496-6211 or
