      You should already have it updated. Print out your certificates and take them to your S1.

    hello Megan,
    I was wondering did you complete the entire Microsoft Series or did you stop once you reached your goal?

      I finished the whole Microsoft series, but you don’t have to to get the points. Each little “folder” is one whole course. As long as you finish those, you get the points for each of those.

      The only way I’ve ever known to do it is check what they were before and then after…

    You might want to put out to at least the Army National Guard soldiers there is a Army Regulation states that the ARNG will NOT accept any online course unless it Army correspondence Courses through AIPD. I just submit over 180 hours of Skillport and guess what!! NO retirement points.

    What does the proficiency mode do as far as points?

    • Megan H

      The proficiency mode is almost equivalent to CLEP out of a course. You take the course tests without having to sit through the course or even play the “next, next, next” game.

    So just by taking the course test, it covers for the rest of the course, or do I still have to do the sub-courses as well to get the full credit?

      There is a course test for each of the “sub-courses”. As long as you are getting the “complete” message at the top right after the test, it is going to count for promotion points.

    the 80 hours from SSD1 don’t go toward you maxing out your ACCP hours?

      Not anymore Samuel.

    Does anyone know of any courses that still can do this? The only one I have found is Adobe Reader 6.0.

      Most of the Microsoft courses that say 2003 or 2007 still do. An easy way to know if this system will work for the class is just click on the class title. It will pull up a page that tells you about the course. If it tells the course time in minutes (ex: 280 min) then you can use this cheat system. If it is stated in hours those are the updated cheat-free classes.

    So if i shotgunned a ton of these classes in one go, and I go to print out my ATTRS certificate and show S-1 all that I have completed, and about 40 hours at a time is completed in space of one day, will they look at me funny? Personal experience with S-1′s attention to detail on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

      I have never seen them pay that much attention to detail. Most of the time it is a lower enlisted person putting the information in. They don’t care. Also, for the Skillport courses, you typically don’t have to do anything with S-1. The hours automatically populate on your ERB and then a day or so later they show up on your PPW.

    I am having a problem with the hours populating on my ERB. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Are there certain correspondence courses that are worth points? I was told that specific courses weren’t worth any points but I’m not sure how true that is.

      As long as they are listed in ALMS, Skillport or ATRRS; you should be fine.

    Has anyone created a list of JKO or CLEP courses and how many points they got for them?

    • Megan H

      The CLEP courses are worth the same promotion points as credit hours. Most are 3.

    I’m still confused. If I take the tests of all the sub categories with the blue screen next to them, pass the tests and get a green bullet, do I have to take the test prep at the end that doesn’t have a blue screen next to it in order to get the points? Or just do the ones with the blue screen to the left of the name, and not worry about the test prep at the end of each category?

    I have recently got back into my skillport and was wondering do I have to go thru each sub course or can I just take a test and move on to the next
