As many current Baldrige examiners are planning schedules and budgets for the upcoming year, please note that in 2014 the Baldrige Program will offer three weeks of Baldrige examiner training in Gaithersburg, Maryland, with a fourth week of Baldrige examiner training to be hosted in California by the California Council for Excellence (CCE) in conjunction with its state examiner training. The training in California will replicate the training in Gaithersburg. CCE examiners who participate will remain state examiners. The dates and tuition (where applicable), are as follows:

Wednesday (for all examiners), May 14, through Friday, May 16, 2014

Location: Southern California (venue TBD)

Tuition: $500 (to be paid to the California program). In addition, national examiners attending this training will pay for their travel, hotel, and other associated costs (as do participants in Gaithersburg).

 

The 2014 Baldrige Examiner Application will open on November 26 and close on January 9.

*Training for the new Baldrige national examiners will take place in Gaithersburg only during Weeks 1, 2, and 3.

**Week 4's training in California will be a "mirror" of Gaithersburg's Weeks 1, 2, and 3 training. Therefore, the Baldrige Program is planning for proportionate numbers of return, senior, and alumni examiners to enroll in Week 4 to ensure the same training experience in both sites.
