Washington, D.C. – Congratulations to this year’s graduates of “Leadership VA” (LVA) Course 2012!
Seventy-six LVA graduates, representing all Department of Veterans Affairs Administrations and Staff Offices, successfully completed a four week residency dedicated to improving their leadership skills.
The course included vigorous intersession work that developed and targeted the skills needed to face the many challenges facing our Federal Government during the 21st century.
In support of Secretary Eric Shinseki’s goals of transforming the VA, LVA is an enterprise-wide Leadership Development course that attracts top candidates from all areas of VA.
Graduates receive professional training that helps to build their networks, increase their leadership skills and prepare for the future.
LVA is currently celebrating its 35th year as the VA’s premier Leadership Training program.

Update to Skillsoft Courses (May 2013)
In May 2013, an update to all web-based Skillsoft courses in the TMS was deployed. A short post-course evaluation will now be required for each Skillsoft course in order to receive your certificate of completion. These evaluations will gather user feedback to shape future training.
If you did not complete the evaluation immediately following completion of the content, it will be available through your TMS To-Do list to complete later. You can find these evaluations either by changing your To-Do List view to “Show: Surveys” or by looking for the evaluation by title. Once you complete the short survey, the TMS will be updated with your certificate of completion.
You will need to restart any Skillsoft course that was not completed before May 20.
For supervisors and managers with at least 3 years of supervisory experience at VA. Intermediate level training. Develop skills to bring about VA’s mission, especially in times of budget cuts. Learn to use the VA competency model. Produce greater value for Veterans and general public.
