About your Account Profile (video)

Your account profile is important because parts of it control which courses you can take. It also helps us develop better tools and make sure you get everything you need as a learner, and is a way for classmates to get to know each other.
About your Account Profile (video)

Your account profile information must be accurate to ensure that you can access the training you need. Fortunately, most of your employee information is transferred from DHS’s HR database automatically.

However, you should still check to make sure your profile details are correct whenever you log in for the first time, begin a new role, or change office locations.
