Learning Management System (LMS) at NIH - Support


The Learning Management System (LMS), also known as the HHS Learning Portal, is used across the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The system is used to track course registrations, view training history (transcripts/certificates), certifications, curricula and more.

All NIH staff with a record in the NIH Enterprise Directory (NED) and an NIH Active Directory account will automatically receive 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 (NIHTC) in order to access the course catalog, training policies, and learn more about the great course offers available for NIH staff..


Do you know the difference between LMS and HHS Access Management System (AMS)?
Think of the AMS as an umbrella and the LMS as one of the people (applications) under the umbrella.

The AMS was deployed to provide single point of authentication access to multiple applications (e.g. LMS, Yammer, eOPF) that allows the use of Network Credentials (Active Directory/regular NIH login credentials) or PIV (HSPD-12) card.

When using the following web address (URL):, access is only granted through the AMS system before launching the LMS. If one experiences difficulty, it could potentially be an AMS issue. One of the most common issues experienced by users is their AMS profile is disabled after 60 days of inactivity. Need more information about AMS? Visit the AMS Self-Help Web Portal.

All NIH staff are invited to join the conversation in the new “What’s Fresh in the LMS?” Yammer group. To join Yammer, visit
