    Attached is a pdf file for the updated 5-12-00022 Training Opportunities Slipsheet.     The general slipsheet refers customers to gsa.gov/csd to find their local CSD.  (A minimal stock will be available at CMLS after January 25th).  This is a low-resolution pdf and CSDs can easily email and/or print on a laser printer.
