New Employee

(This includes a former employee who returns to House employment after a gap of more than 90 consecutive calendar days, as well as interns who are paid for more than 60 days.)

Note: Both new employees and existing employees will be taking the same 117th Congress Ethics Training 2021 course for CY 2021.

  • ALL new employees must complete training within the first 60 days of House employment.
  • Due to the current health crisis, all new employees may complete the 117th Congress Ethics Training 2021 online. 
  • New employees with access to the House network may access online training through the Congressional Staff Academy
  • New employees without access to the House network may watch an online video to satisfy the New Employee Ethics Training requirement.  To do so, please email ethics.training@mail.house.gov to be given access. 

Note: Detailees, fellows, unpaid interns, or any individuals who are employed by the House and paid for less than 60 days are not required to attend ethics training in 2021.  The Ethics Committee nonetheless encourages these individuals to complete ethics training, so they become familiar with the House ethics rules while working in a House office or for a House Committee.
