IPS Training Facilities

In April 2016, the Institute for Public Service (IPS) embarked on a strategic planning process that took them through three planning retreats and four listening sessions across the state. The results of these meetings shaped the new strategic plan that will guide IPS and its agencies into the future.

One of the major goals, “IPS Will Deliver Best-in-Class Customer-Focused Education and Technical Assistance”, specifically addresses the education and training delivered by the institute. As a result, a micro-goal was developed in support of this major goal, that goal is: “Have a state-of-the-art education facility in each grand division of the state by 2020.”

Working in support of this goal, IPS has invested effort and resources in establishing a state-of-the-art training facility located in Middle Tennessee, specifically in Nashville at the same location as our Center for Industrial Services at 193 Polk Avenue.

The IPS Training Suite at Polk Center features two large meeting rooms that can be separated by air walls, three breakout rooms, a larger conference room, a multipurpose room and full-service kitchen. The Polk Avenue Center has ample free parking available.

The IPS Training Facilities in Nashville (shown above) can accommodate meetings/trainings anywhere from 5 people to 70 people in a single room or up to 140 people sharing the same information for content a larger group.

In our Cookeville location (shown below), up to 40 people can be accommodated very comfortably.
