The Federal Virtual Training Environment (FedVTE)
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) partnered with DOD and the Department of State (DOS) to create FedVTE, a virtual training environment with over 30,000 active users.
The Federal Virtual Training Environment (FedVTE) is an online training center that provides Federal cybersecurity and IT professionals with hands-on labs and training courses. The environment is accessible from any Internet-enabled computer and is free to users and their organizations. FedVTE is based on a proven Department of Defense (DOD) technology used to supplement defense service training.
The FedVTE content library includes more than 800 hours of training, 150 demos, and 3,000+ pieces of content. Users practice what they’ve learned in a “sandbox” network in more than 100 hands-on labs. An audio and video recording of each pre-recorded classroom course is synchronized with a transcript and the instructor slides. If users pause or exit, FedVTE will bookmark their place. Additional features include the ablitly to:
• fast forward and rewind pre-recorded classroom courses;
• highlight text and take notes on transcripts and slides; and
• view and print training certificates and progress reports.
