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.

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.

Depending on the choice of remote services, number of remote connections, and course length, additional costs to your IC will be incurred beyond the regular course registration tuition. 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.

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

To request remote participation: Please seek approval from your supervisor and then contact us at least 12 business days prior to the course in which you are interested in for details. Remote participants must also register via open enrollment.
