Professional Development Program (PDP)
The PDP provides two years of entry level career development that consists of on-the-job training, diverse development assignments, geographic and occupational mobility, and participation at the Professional Development Academy.
The PDP program is for college graduates with a bachelor's degree or higher to serve in a variety of occupations, with Business, Financial Management, Civil Engineering, Planning, and Environment currently among the top disciplines for the FHWA.
Qualifications assessment will be made by Human Resources.
The FCIP appointment will expire at the end of the two-year internship period. Interns who successfully complete their internship and meet all citizenship, suitability, qualification, and performance requirements may be noncompetitively converted to a career or career conditional appointment. Note: "Career" status applies to individuals who serve a 3-year probationary period under the competitive service - the PDP program will only satisfy 2 years. Note: This language content will be revised shortly.
