Learning Management System (LMS) at NIH - Support
The Learning Management System (LMS), also known as the HHS Learning Portal, is a system used to manage training needs across the entire Department of Health and Human Services. This system has the capability to register employees for training classes, create learner transcripts, develop competency assessments and customized learning plans. All NIH staff with a record in the NIH Enterprise Directory (NED) and have an NIH Active Directory account will automatically be given access to start tracking trainings and setting professional developmental goals. The LMS system houses over 3,000 free online training courses, as well as Books 24x7, which is a valuable online information resource. For more information on how to access the free online training and Books 24x7, please visit the FREE Skillsoft Online Training web page. Please also visit the NIH Training Center Website in order to access the NIH Training Center course catalog and policies to learn more about the great courses NIH offers NIH staff.
