Get Enrolled in ETD

Enterprise Learning Management (ELM), developed by Oracle/PeopleSoft, is the state’s learning management system. Enterprise Talent Development uses ELM to register, track and report on learning delivered through classroom, seminar, video or e-learning platforms. ELM is available for all agencies to use.*

When you become officially enrolled in a course, you will receive confirmations and reminders from elm.notification@state.mn.us. Typically, reminders are sent out fourteen (14) and seven (7) days before the course start date. If you do not receive an email, please first confirm that your email address is correct in self-service. Review the ELM Instructions page on how to verify/update your email address. If correct and your status is "enrolled" for the course but you have not received an email, contact ETD by calling 651-259-3646 or email etd.training@state.mn.us.

*For agency specific enrollment practices or enrollment assistance, contact your agency training coordinator from the list below. Please review our cancellation and rescheduling policies before enrolling.

2. Enroll

Next, enroll in your desired course within ELM through the Learning link of the Self-Service portal. A confirmation of pending enrollment will be sent to your state email. Additionally, an email will then be sent to your manager, supervisor or training coordinator to approve your enrollment. *Please note you will not receive any notifications from the system if your state email address is not accurate in SEMA4. Follow this guide to enter or verify your business e-mail is correct in Self-Service.


3. Approve & Confirm

Depending on your agency's enrollment practices, your manager, supervisor or training coordinator will finalize your enrollment by approving your training in ELM. When a manager or training coordinator approves training for an employee it is acknowledgement that the appropriate agency fiscal policies have been followed and completed. You will then receive an enrollment verification email from ELM. You are not enrolled in the course until your request for training has been approved by your manager, supervisor or training coordinator. All employees must have a purchase order for encumbered funds prior to enrollment. 

In order to reserve your spot, a ll (3) three steps must be completed. Please be aware that if a course has become full by the time you are approved, you will be placed on the wait list for this session. Before attending a course, verify you have received an enrollment confirmation email from ELM. If you have been placed on the wait list, you will receive an email from the system stating your position on the list.
