Beginning with a high-level overview of regulatory requirements (e.g., EO 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, VEVRAA) and enforcement, this training will provide the foundation for understanding AA/EEO compliance for federal contractors.

Overview of the Affirmative Action Program (AAP)
- Identifying Risk Areas
- Following-up on Risk Areas
