Got Questions? 
     Don’t quite understand? 
          Is a topic a little fuzzy?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then PPC Procedures and Development (P&D) is here to help!  P&D is now offering On-Demand training to anyone who would like structured training on any Direct Access, HR, Admin, or Pay related topic.  This is great for any member(s) and/or their shop that want more training but may not necessarily have the time to commit to conducting their own. 

Virtual sessions are available for anyone and everyone (not just Yeomen) upon request and can be customized to meet your needs. Sessions will be presented live via TEAMS. In the past, P&D has provided specialized training to units on topics such as:
