Central Verification System (CVS) New User Training Now Available

Federal agency security officers and human resources personnel can now sign up for new Central Verification System (CVS) user training. This training was created with the new CVS users in mind. Beginning in June of 2010, OPM-FIS's Agency Training and Oversight will be holding two day courses in Arlington, Virginia on a weekly basis until the end of September 2010. This course is designed to teach the novice CVS user:

  • how to navigate through the CVS application;
  • how to use the system in compliance with Federal rules and regulations;
  • why correct CVS usage is important to the reciprocity of security and suitability determinations;
  • how to use the CVS guidance and training documents provided by OPM; and
  • how to report and maintain clearance, polygraph, and HSPD-12 data.
