The Cardinal team offers several training resources to instruct users on system use and best practices. Cardinal courses are offered in two formats:
  • Web based training (WBT) is available for introductory, intermediate, and some advanced courses.
  • Instructor led training (ILT) is available for advanced courses.
Other materials, such as job aids, are also available for use in conjunction with the training.

Training objectives include:
  • Building critical, system-specific skills to perform tasks in Cardinal.
  • Providing Cardinal users with hands-on opportunities to perform tasks using realistic training activities.
  • Minimizing the amount of time users spend on training and away from their daily tasks by creating modular, role-based training paths.

How to Register:


Cardinal courses are available through the Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM)'s Commonwealth of Virginia Learning Center (COVLC). The COVLC provides access to web-based training and instructor led training courses.

For Reference Only:

The WBT and ILT course materials are available on the Cardinal website.

To receive credit for WBT and ILT courses, users must enroll and complete classes through the COVLC.
