ProFeds partners with federal agency training and HR departments to meet OPM's Financial Literacy Initiative

Since federal agencies have the responsibility to provide
pre-retirement training to their employees, ProFeds has created two ways to make certain everyone has access to top-notch training that is challenging, thought-provoking and engaging.

Read on to see how ProFeds can help you bring this lively training to your employees...

The Two Training Methods


  • The agency selects workshop date exclusively for their employees.
  • In-person training is held at a venue determined by the agency
  • Under contract through GSA Schedule terms and pricing


  • We have pre-scheduled workshops open to all federal employees within the local area
  • In-person training is held at an off-site venue in the local community
  • Employees attend at no cost at an off-site venue
