It shows, through guided simulations, how to establish an account, use the dashboard, and manage action requests/work. vPC-GR provides the ANG and AFR online services for submitting personnel action requests, coordinating requests, and managing cases.

The eLT is available via the Advanced Distributed Learning Service (ADLS) website (https://golearn.csd.disa.mil). View it by going to the "Course List" page, where it's found under the "Miscellaneous" category.
