Reminder: AAMVA’s Learning Management System Is Available


12/05/2022

Gain Commercial Driver's License Information System (CDLIS), State-to-State (S2S) Verification Service, Problem Driver Pointer System (PDPS), National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS), and mobile driver license (mDL) knowledge with AAMVA’s Learning Management System (LMS), a web-based on-demand training application. This great learning experience allows members and contractors (with approval) to take on-demand training any time and on any device. 

Currently, there are a total of 74 on-demand training courses available for CDLIS IT, CDLIS Reports, SPEXS WebUI, S2S IT, PDPS IT, NMVTIS IT and mDL as well as four certified learning paths for CDLIS 101 basics, CDLIS 201 intermediate, CDLIS 301 upper intermediate, and 401 advanced. Certifications are available and ready for download once learning paths have been completed. For a list of the on-demand training courses and learning paths available, please visit AAMVA’s technology systems training page.

As a reminder, the best use of the LMS is to take the learning paths and pass them, which leads to certification. On-demand courses are more suited for perusing the training material if you are not interested in certification.

AAMVA has a pre-recorded webinar on the LMS, including how to browse through and enroll in new courses. AAMVA also has a pre-recorded webinar on the learning paths and a PowerPoint presentation. To access AAMVA’s LMS, log in to aamva.org, then go to MY AAMVA and select the ‘Access IT Training Portal’.
