Education and Training at Your Finger Tips

Categories: The Insider

When our members agreed at our 2015 National convention that more training and education was a priority for this union, we knew it would only make us stronger. Now, we are proud to introduce new ways to access information and connect with one another:   

AFGE Learn

It’s a one-stop shop for training at AFGE. Any member – including local officers and stewards – will be able to log in to the online portal using their MyAFGE user ID and password. From there, you can access: 

  • Online courses 
  • Assessments 
  • Handbooks and manuals 
  • Much more 


Stewards Training

Get what you need to represent our members effectively, online and at your own pace!   

We've created a short online module series that takes you through what you need to know about  being a steward. It's the foundation for much of the work you'll be doing as a problem solver, an organizer, and an activist.  You are the voice of the workers and we are counting on you to make AFGE Big Enough to Win!  

The Mentorship Institute

The AFGE Mentorship Institute will launch its first cohort of mentors and mentees in early 2017.  

  • Mentors and mentees will apply and complete a profile to be matched with one another 
  • They will have the opportunity to meet and collaborate with GoToTraining 
  • They will be expected to attend a conference with their partner on a regular basis
