(c) The in-service training and educational programs may be made available to other public officials and employees and to other participants, provided such participation does not have the effect of denying access to the program to any classified state employee.

(d) The establishment of training through these rules does not preclude an agency from developing or implementing agency specific training for its individual needs.

25.2 Mandatory Training

(a) The Director shall establish mandatory training for employees who occupy or are appointed to designated supervisory, managerial, or administrative jobs.
