Online Learning University

The GSA Online University (OLU) is the home for mandatory trainings, as well as a repository of recommended and optional training opportunities, for GSA employees.

Online University (OLU) classes

Required classes will be assigned in OLU and pushed individually to the OLU home page of TTS employees under My Learning Assignments.

Time spent taking OLU trainings should be coded as 969 - GSA-mandated Non-Billable Work in Tock.

GSA OLU training material sometimes has trouble with certain browsers. We recommend using Citrix and Internet Explorer or, on Mac, Safari, to ensure successful course completion and documentation.
