VA tests online training apps

The Veterans Affairs Department will run a six-month pilot to see if its employees benefit from online training.

Through the pilot, 9,000 VA employees at 10 locations will be able to choose from nearly 300 courses offered by VCampus Corp. The Reston, Va., company plans to create two sets of programs for the department: One will allow unrestricted use and access, the second will restrict access and programs based on VA criteria.

If the pilot is successful, VA officials said they would expand the Web program to users departmentwide.

The company is also a participant in the General Services Administration's Online University.
