SkillPort is the online learning portal for SkillSoft training and on-the-job support tools. In order to access the training content, SkillPort requires a user license. Licenses are valid from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30 each year, and once a license is assigned, the employee occupies the license for this period. The license cannot be reassigned to another employee.

You can preview the SkillPort site via a limited access link at http://sc.skillport.com. The username is Testuser and the password is usclearning.
