About Us

The Institute at GPO first opened in September of 1989 with the mission of providing informational seminars to the printing and publishing professions within the Federal Government on topics related to printing and electronic publishing policies, processes and terminology.

Today, the Institute at GPO continues to offer educational opportunities for Federal publishing and printing professionals with courses that reflect the changing face of agency needs to communicate effectively with a broad range of audiences using a variety of channels. Classes incorporate a variety of learning experiences including presentations, demonstrations, case studies, discussions, and hands-on exercises. Our faculty is drawn from recognized experts in their respective fields.

We can help you:

  • develop training for your staff in Federal sector publishing and printing best practices
  • increase your knowledge about emerging digital technologies that impact the planning, processes, and budgets for publishing, printing, and information dissemination
  • improve your skills in areas unique to Federal agency publishing needs
  • learn about the latest product and service offerings from GPO

The Institute primarily offers sessions at GPO Headquarters in Washington DC, but also offers on-site and customized training in agency locations by special arrangement as well as webcasts.

Periodically check our schedule throughout the year as our dynamic curriculum is updated to ensure that course offerings keep pace with the changing technologies and practices being introduced into the Federal sector.
