Housed in this system is most of the Trainings for Virginia State employees as well as trainings from VDEM, DHRM, DOA, etc. It contains training topics from safety to professional development to credit card procedures, and mandatory trainings just to name a few.

Classroom Training Sessions

This helps us to provide better materials as well as manage enrollment and give proper credit to attendees on their transcripts.

Online Training Sessions

As mentioned previously there are many different trainings in the VLC including online courses.  These can last anywhere from ten minutes to three hours.
