OTED’s Learning Managment System
||OTED offers continuous learning with a combination of online courses and classroom training. We offer continuing education units (CEUs). FDA/ORA collaborates with its stakeholders and external organizations to develop suggested curricula to meet the training needs of our regulatory partners.
Our vision is for OTED to serve you as a source of training, as well as, a provider of certification.
OTED Online Courses
OTED online courses are competency-based with mastery quizzes contained within each module. Once you have completed a course, you can print a Certification of Completion for your records.
These courses are made possible as a result of our a partnership between FDA and a private learning development company, UL EduNeering, Inc.
OTED currently uses two Learning Management Systems (LMS) for its training programs: ComplianceWire LMS and the ORA LearnED Training System that replaced the Pathlore legacy LMS for delivering online and classroom trainings. Learn more about the ORA LearnEd Training System.
State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Partners may access both LMS systems which contain online content and prerequisites. Each require a separate username and password. However, you can access both once you have an account in the ORA LearnED Training System.
