The PAT Council is committed to assisting with the Professional Development of PATs. As part of its service mission, the Council coordinates use of an annual fund provided [by Human Resources]for PAT Professional Development; with the goal of providing development opportunities. When appropriate, this training and development will be made available to other KSC employees.
The Council’s primary method of providing this is through a Professional Development Day, held during May, and through other Council led training opportunities. At the same time, the Council recognizes that some groups of PATs may need training which is more specific to their responsibilities. The following guidelines are presented so that PATs may request funding for specific training opportunities.
