Subject: Skillsoft Online Library of Courses Available in DOI LEARN
I am pleased to announce that the Department’s DOI LEARN Program Office in conjunction with the DOI Chief Learning Officer have obtained an enterprise license for Skillsoft's full courseware plus legal compliance libraries for Fiscal Year 2013. This enterprise license is effective from October 1, 2012, to September 30, 2013, at no cost to you. This one-year pilot is an effort to provide low-cost opportunities for training for all DOI employees. New Federal hires in Fiscal Year 2013 will automatically be assigned a Skillsoft license when their DOI LEARN accounts are created. As of October 1st, all DOI Federal employees have access to these new course offerings in DOI LEARN.
A variety of Skillsoft courses meet the annual 4-hour EEO and Diversity requirement for managers and supervisors. The Department’s DOI LEARN Program Manager has added a new tab in DOI LEARN at the "My Home" screen titled “EEO & Ethics Courses.”
The Role Based Security Training (RBST) website is being updated with information on related courses, and can be viewed at http://internal.usgs.gov/gio/security/security_training_rbst.html Contract personnel identified as having RBST requirements will also have access to SkillSoft licenses once their DOI LEARN profiles have been adjusted.
For additional information on the vast selection of online courses available via Skillsoft including frequently asked questions go to http://www.doi.gov/doilearn/skillsoft_info.cfm.
I encourage you to maximize the use of this valuable resource!
