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 your license activated.

LinkedIn Learning licenses are only available for VA employees. Contractors, health professions trainees, without compensation appointees and volunteers are not eligible to activate a license at this time.

To get started, click the Activate License button. Use your VA email address to activate your account. If you have a personal LinkedIn account, you will have the option to connect it after your license has been activated.

VA’s Human Capital Services Center provides LinkedIn Learning licenses to all VA employees at no cost to the individual. A credit card is not required to activate your VA license. If you are prompted to enter credit card information while creating your account, restart the process or contact the Enterprise Service Desk (ESD) by calling 855-673-4357 or submitting a help ticket using YourIT.

Activate License

After you log in, select any skills you’re interested in learning more about. Let the learning begin!

You can access LinkedIn Learning courses in the Talent Management System (TMS) 2.0, online at or on the LinkedIn Learning mobile app.

To receive a completion in TMS 2.0, you must launch the course from TMS 2.0. If you begin a course directly on the LinkedIn Learning website or app a completion will not be recorded in TMS 2.0.

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 this page.

How do I use LinkedIn Learning?

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