An employee assigned to training during normal duties is considered on
duty for the period of the training and no charge is made to leave.
Even though the employee pays for the training, no charge is made
to leave if the training is authorized to meet a performance improvement
need. Employees may pay for their own training, because training law
allows agencies and employees to share the costs of authorized training
