Welcome All Learners
DMNA has successfully migrated to the Statewide Learning Management System (SLMS).
Statewide Learning Management System (SLMS) is the first enterprise-wide, web-based platform for use by New York State agencies to manage and deliver training. SLMS is being implemented in five phases and is expected to have all agencies on board by 2013.
State employees benefit from a single sign-on, access to statewide training catalogs, and a centralized employee training record that follows them if they move to other state agencies. Additionally, it provides the means for the agencies that train over 600,000 external learners, to schedule and deliver training to that population as well.
Features for Learners
Learning History - Records of the training you have taken for your job with NYS will be located in one convenient place, and are available to you even if you move to another agency. You can print certificates of completion directly from SLMS.
Searching or Browsing the Catalog - Searching and browsing the catalog are valuable tools that you will use often. You can click the Enroll button on training that is available to you to enroll directly from SLMS.
Supplemental Learning - You can add work-related courses or workshops that you took outside of SLMS. These can be added right into your learning history, with your manager's approval.
Request a Class - Perhaps you have searched the catalog in SLMS and you just cannot find the subject matter or delivery method you need. You can request that a class be scheduled.
Features for Managers
Approve Team Members - From the manager self-service pages, you will be able to approve or deny your team member's training requests, and their requests for supplemental learning.
Viewing Team Learning - The Team Learning page displays all of your team's learning including the title and type of learning as well as the status.
This will allow you to see if they have completed mandated or required training.
Learning Plans - Learning Plans play a key role in your ability, as a manager, to help shape your team member's professional development plans. By taking advantage of online classes and other learning opportunities offered through SLMS, you can assign targeted learning to help your employees obtain learning at the right time and place. As a manager, you can add items to, or delete items from, a team member's existing Learning Plan or create a new Learning Plan.

To all Agency SFS Users:
As part of the BSC's partnership with DMNA to provide the best customer service possible, a series of online training videos has been developed to help walk employees through common SFS processes. The videos are short (only about 5-10 minutes each) and are meant for use by both DMNA's finance staff and other employees who use SFS for their work, such as travelers. The attached announcement includes the website to access the training videos and an overview of the current video offerings.
