(a) The department shall devise plans for, and cooperate with appointing powers in the conduct of, supervisor and career executive assignment employee training programs so that the quality of leadership services rendered by persons in those positions may be continually improved and succession planning supported.

(b) Upon the initial appointment of an employee to a designated supervisory position, the employee shall be provided a minimum of 80 hours of training, as prescribed by the department. The training shall address the role of the supervisor, techniques of supervision, planning, organizing, staffing, performance standards, performance appraisals, discipline, labor relations, equal employment opportunity principles, and affirmative action for persons with disabilities. Every supervisor shall have access to a copy of each bargaining agreement covering the employees he or she supervises.

(c) The required hours of supervisory training shall be successfully completed within the term of the probationary period or within six months of the employee’s initial appointment, unless it is demonstrated that to do so creates additional costs or that the training cannot be completed during this time period due to limited availability of training courses. Upon completion of the initial appointment training, supervisory employees shall be provided biannually a minimum of 20 hours of leadership training and development, as prescribed by the department.

(d) Upon the initial appointment of an employee to a management position, the employee shall be provided a minimum of 40 hours of leadership training and development, as prescribed by the department, within 12 months of appointment.
