AFGE LEAD Training is a part of the new standardized, tiered curriculum for all AFGE training. The LEAD Curriculum model combines online learning tools and technology with traditional classroom training so that AFGE can reach more members and equip them for union leadership in the 21st century. The tiered courses start at the most basic level, progress to advanced level at the National LEAD trainings and culminate in a third tier of leadership training for mentors and instructors.
The National LEAD Training Conference is federation wide training hosted by AFGE National. Members who have completed the Level 1 prerequisite can enroll in Level 2 advanced courses. These courses are intensive and designed to develop core competencies in leadership, mentoring, strategic planning, team building, and communication.
