NYS Management/Confidential Employees


Access Online Learning Certificate Programs

NYS Management/Confidential (M/C) employees may now participate in our Online Learning Certificate Programs covering everything from diversity, equity, and inclusion to business writing and organizational skills to popular computer software. 

M/C employees must have access to an Empire KnowledgeBank (EKB) license in the Statewide Learning Management System (SLMS) to participate. 

To get started, eligible employees should contact their agency training officer for information on how to obtain an EKB license. Upon receipt, M/C employees may enroll in classes under the certificate program. To do so, eligible employees should log in to SLMS and enter a keyword search, such as the SLMS code, program title, or organization name. See the list of available programs and SLMS codes in the program flyer, below, or visit the Online Learning Certificate Program page.  

The programs are self-paced and can be taken anytime and anywhere from a device with internet access. All learning occurs online in SLMS. Participants are required to successfully complete all required courses and achieve a passing grade of 70% or higher in each course by the end of the program to earn a certificate.
