    To whom it may concern:

    I have been having some problems accessing my foundation course on the ALMS system. I’ve been calling the above number and noone ever answers. I’ve waited 30 mins one time and they still didn’t answer the phone. How can I get help with this? What kind of operation are you all running, where I can’t get any assistance. I need to complete this course or my job will be on the line. PLEASE HELP!!!!

    Thank you,

    Leslie Banks

    I am unable to get into ALMS through my AKO account. What do I need to do to add ALMS portal to my AKO?

    Re: Leslie Banks
    I understand how you feel. I consistently have issues with the ALMS in that it logs me out during attempts to access courseware, or during actively taking a test. I also have to wait considerable lengths of time to get through, and the few times I do manage to get a person on the line, they can’t do anything to fix the software aside from adding more possible attempts to the class.

    I don’t know what kind of operation it is, but none of the online FAQs (e.g. online help ticket replies) seem to help, and it seems like there’s maybe 3 people working the phone line at any given time.

    I’ve heard that using the firefox browser helps with the experience, but as the Army does not allow open-source software to be used on govt computers, I’ve not been able to confirm this.

    Re: Larry Secrest
    I’ve always found the ALMS portal under the “My Training” tab, if that helps.

    I found it very helpful to write to the ALMS help desk. They answered my e-mail within 24 hours and solved the issues that were going on with the website. Although it did take me a long time to find the help desk information on the website.
