    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.

    Thank you..

    I am having the same issue “Error in Load the Intro Video: Type Error: Error #1009″
    This is happening when I access the USASMA SSD4 video. (Structured Self-Development – Level 4 (SSDIV)_Module01 (00020459)

    • perez says:

      I am having the same issue error in LoadTheIntro Video: type Error: Error #1009 does anyone know how to fix this problem

      • thomas says:

        I am also experiencing the same issue, “LoadTheIntro Video: type Error: Error #1009″ for the Structured Self-Development courses Level 1. It either gives me that message, or the course will start to load, but then it just sits there with a blank screen and says Press any key to continue, but nothing happens?
        Anyone know how to get around this?

    • Gale, C says:

      If you the error message “Error in Load the Intro Video: Type Error: Error #1009,” you DO NOT have to close the windows and reload.

      Just click on the USASMA SSD4 Hyperlink (on the 1st pop-up window behind the module window [with the words "Please keep this window open during lesson" on it] ) until the video opens (you may have to do this a few times).

      The USASMA SSD4 hyperlink is in the upper right hand corner of said window.

      Hope this wasn’t too confusing.

    • Chris M says:

      exact same thing here!!! error in LoadTheIntro Video: type Error: Error #1009

    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.

    • Cavin, W says:

      I am also having trouble with the ALMS Help Desk, no one answers the phone, the automated call responder sends you to a different mailbox that is not accepting calls. I tried calling again and dailing 0 to talk to a live person, this is also a no go. Could you put the email address on your post next time so that others may have access to it, if they answer that then it might be the only way to clear up issues.

    • sam says:

      can you please share the helpdesk information to get ALMS issues resolved? thanks.

  7. Reyes says:

    ALMS has given me problems from day one. I have been trying to complete an required class for my job. I got through each lesson but it never updates my status to “completed” nor will it update that I have taken and passed my exam at the end. I keep getting different asnwers about the problem form the help desk, when I get through (after waiting 30 minutes or more on hold). Now I am being told that ALMS is only compatible with IE 7 or 8. I currently have explorer 9. I’ve been told that I must revert to 8 inorder to complete my classes. Geee, the Army needs to catch up on the Tech side of the house!

  8. Mark says:

    This is p!ss poor. This course was designed by our Senior Leaders to build Senior Leaders and very obviously wasn’t wasn’t quality checked. I am having the same issue with the error message 1009. I am one lesson away from completion and have spent two complete days trying to access it. The help desk when I emailed the address from the inbrief .pdf sent me back a request assistance denied message. Pitiful is all I have to say. I will fulfill the requirement but this sends a clear message that this course was merely a check the block thing due to it’s many issues. Where is the LEADERSHIP!

  9. John says:

    I had same problem but i just kept trying it. Best thing to do is write help desk and call at same time. if you call the people that actually work with SSD4 they will help. call 877-276-9338. they will be open on tuesday the 17th Jan 2012

    I am having trouble accessing the ALMS website. I have an active AKO account. I clicked on self-service, My training, then clicked on the ALMS website. All it gives me is an error message. I’ve gone to TOOLS, and turned off the pop-up blocker. I’ve tried everything I could. I’ve even tried enrolling in the ALMS. Nothing works. I’ve waited on the phone for 30 mins and it just hung up on its own. Please email me asap. I’ve called before and the help desk personnel said there’s nothing they can do.

  11. Debroah says:

    Gynnifer can you provide the email address?

  12. Tristan Cajar says:

    So once again, trying to do courses on line and ALMS is timing out, on top of the 47 minutes on hold so far…no answers.

    I been having problems with trying to complete my Structured Self Development level one. I got all but one part of module 1 complete. Every time i try to launch it I keep getting a blank white screen. Can any one help?

  15. gregory elser says:

    I am having an issue with accessing my SSD1 course, Does anyone know how to access it? thank you!

  16. Jim says:

    To Whom It May Concern,

    I cannot access the below module in SSD Level IV and cannot take the exam for this portion until I can get past this module. I am getting a navigation error. The other two portions under this tab I have completed and would like to finish Phase 1 as soon as possible. I am currently showing 77% complete, but must complete this module and the exam in order to complete Phase 1.

    I have taken the training material 3 times for “Theories of Accident Prevention”; I understand the information provided. I thought that this training was suppose to enforce what you have learned. If you miss the 80% out of the 100% you have to take the test over again. Whoever generated this test had an agenda in mind; they asked the questions in such a way that they convoluted everything. Once you get your final score and miss the 80% you have no reference as to which questions you answered correctly and did not. This is not the intent of the Safety program in my opinion to make people second guess what they already have answered correctly to retake the test. It is also a colossal waste of Government taxes and resources.

    Dear Sir/Madam.
    I am in the process of the course:Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention Standing Strong Training,. I finished section 1 and section 3. I can’t access the section2: I click Launch and select Strong standing, the it stays there forever. The contents never show, just ask us to wait and wait. I have tried hundreds times. This is the reason, I finished Section 3 first.
    Hope you can help.
