Skillsoft Online Training (CBT)

Skillsoft Online Computer-Based Training (CBT) is a self-paced, interactive training system. Skillsoft Online Training lets users set goals and work at their own pace. Course completion times vary by the subject.

Go to the Skillsoft Online Training (CBT) website and enter your eRaider username and password to use the system. Click on "Course Catalog" near the top center of the homepage to browse the catalog. You can also use the "Search-and-Learn" feature to search using keywords, titles, or course IDs.
