Streamlining Access to Training Content for Federal Employees

Streamlining Access to Training Content for Federal Employees

For the past ten years, nearly all the federal agencies have licensed Skillsoft’s training content that support the federal acquisition workforce with opportunities to participate in continuous learning activities through their agency Learning Management Systems (LMS).

Recently, Skillsoft collaborated with the Federal Acquisition Institute (FAI) to identify and review continuous learning opportunities which align with the FAC-P/PM competencies to assist the federal acquisition workforce in meeting their continuous learning point (CLP) requirements.

What the changes mean for HR and L&D

More than 85 Skillsoft Leadership and Business Skills courses are currently available and aligned with the Federal Acquisition Certification for Program and Project Management (FAC-P/PM) core competencies. As a result of mapping the Skillsoft courses to the P/PM performance outcomes, agency ACM’s may more readily accept these courses in order for employees to use them for continuous learning points (CLPs). We also expect that over the next year, a further 50 additional courses will be made available for Contracting Officers, Contracting Officer Representatives and program and project managers to maintain their certifications and enhance critical skill sets.

By improving access to leadership and project management training across critical acquisition roles government-wide, FAI and Skillsoft are empowering federal acquisition professionals to obtain the critical skills and competencies necessary to advance their careers.
