The Defense Civilian Personnel Advisory Service (DCPAS) Unemployment Compensation (UC) training program was designed to provide the foundation that Unemployment Compensation Program Administrators (UCPAs) need to appropriately administer the UC program and safeguard Department of Defense funds. This training program is conducted virtually and contains information and exercises that will reinforce UCPAs knowledge and understanding of the UC program.

Currently the UC Basics course is available for registration. Additional UC Basics courses may be added depending on demand. Coming soon to the schedule will be UC DIUCS training. These courses are designed specifically for UCPAs and are presented by DCPAS UC specialists.
