The Vehicle Titles and Registration Division (VTR) is excited to announce the transition to a new eLearning platform called TalentLMS in July 2021. The current platform, Articulate Online, will be discontinued by the vendor later this year, so VTR is migrating all content and accounts to TalentLMS. TalentLMS was chosen after extensive research and testing, with the goal to provide a quality product that meets user needs for required training and is mobile friendly.
There will be no changes to the course content or required training. This change will primarily affect the look and feel of the user experience. To familiarize stakeholders with the new platform, VTR will create a training module for learners and will also host a webinar for reporting administrators, both of which will be available closer to the July transition date.
The process to request eLearning accounts will not change. County tax assessor-collectors should continue to submit requests for account additions and deletions using the current eLearning User Account Form.
