Upcoming Skillsoft Maintenance Downtime



On Saturday, October 19th 2019, Skillsoft will be conducting maintenance activities. As a result, all Skillsoft hosted services will be inaccessible during this maintenance event. Every effort is being made to minimize the duration of those activities, and our expectation is that the impact will not exceed 12 hours commencing at 7:00 AM Eastern. It is our hope that the impact will be less in duration, however, in the interest of setting conservative expectations, up to 12 hours should be anticipated.

  •  Sunday, 1-3 p.m. ET
