It will help PIOs identify critical audiences, both internal and external. The primary audience for this training is individuals who have public information responsibilities as their main job or as an auxiliary function at the federal, state, local, tribal or territorial level of government and in the private and nongovernmental sectors. This is the second course in the Public Information Training Series.
