Types of Training

   Workshops at FPPC

These two hour workshops are held in our FPPC office in Sacramento. Experienced staff will provide training and guidance in a speaker format, and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and network with others in their profession. 

   Workshops at Other Locations

Upon request, the External Affairs and Education Division at the FPPC will coordinate in-person workshops throughout the year at public agencies around the state. These workshops are customized to meet your agency's needs and generally last two hours. Workshops can be presented to your staff, or to a larger, public audience.

The FPPC tries to full all requests, but there may be times throughout the year where we are restricted by staffing and resource constraints. Please note: Travel expense reimbursements may be requested to facilitate the workshop.

If you would like to request a workshop, please complete the Workshop Request Form and e-mail it to seminars@fppc.ca.gov.

   Webinars: Live and Recorded

The FPPC webinars are condensed versions of our workshops that you can watch at any time, or at a scheduled time during the day. The webinars are available online only--in person attendance is not required.

Each webinar lasts approximately 45 minutes. Our live webinars are interactive--you can ask questions and get answers in real-time. Registration is required. Pre-recorded webinars are available at any time, and you can watch them at your convenience. Printable slides are available to use as a reference tool.

Webinars provide information for candidates and treasurers, campaign filing officers, state agency Form 700 filing officers, and local agency conflict of interest code reviewers. New webinars are added on a rolling basis; please continue to check the website for more information.

   Agency Outreach Training

Political Reform Consultants from the External Affairs and Education Division are available to conduct one-on-one training at public agencies throughout the state. These outreach opportunities are tailored for a small audience; any offical with a filing officer responsibility should attend. To request an outreach meeting, please contact seminars@fppc.ca.gov.
