Get started with LinkedIn Learning

Now that you've seen some of the great benefits of LinkedIn Learning and how it can help you develop both personally and professionally, let's get you're license activated.

The LinkedIn Learning license is only available for VA Employees (Contractors, HPTs, WOCs, Volunteers are not included). To get started, click the Activate License button below. You will need to activate your license using your VA email address.

Activate License

When you first log in, you can connect your account with your personal LinkedIn account if you choose. After you log in, select any skills you’re interested in learning more about. Then let the learning begin!

You’ll have access to courses in the Talent Management System (TMS), online at, or on the LinkedIn Learning mobile app. If you want to receive a completion in TMS, you must launch the course from TMS. Completions directly on LinkedIn Learning website or the mobile app will not be recorded in TMS.

Having troubles activating your license? Contact the Enterprise Service Desk (ESD) by calling 855-673-4357 or submitting a help ticket using YourIT.

Step-by-Step activation videos are also available on the right hand side of this webpage.

How Do I Use LinkedIn Learning?

To make the most of your LinkedIn Learning account after you have activated your license, we recommend that you take the course How to Use LinkedIn Learning. This course will teach you many of the features available to you with your LinkedIn Learning account.
