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..
