Training Opportunities

Welcome to the Florida Department of Environmental Protections Human Resource and Development Training page, our one stop shop for all your training needs. Here you will be able to view and register for classroom and online training facilitated through the Division of Administrative Services.

 We are pleased to announce the roll out of our new Learning Management System, Sumtotal’s Maestro (quick fact-means teacher in Italian & Spanish), which will replace our old training site, Skillport. The Maestro LMS was developed by Sumtotal, a subsidiary Skillsoft eLearning Systems, and offers a rich and comprehensive user portal that provides access to both instructor led and online (asynchronous) training.  *Online content is provided by Skillsoft and hosted on Maestro, Sumtotal's Learning Management System (LMS).

Users will still be able to take all the online training courses that were available via Skillport, including the Books 24x7 content, and additionally, they will be able to register for both online (webinar) and in-class instructor led trainings. 

During our transition phase, we ask that if you cannot find a course you would like to take listed in Maestro, that you please let us know and we will be glad to add it for you. Please fill out the following course request information and submit it to training@dep.state.fl.us.
