DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) developed the National Training and Education Resource (NTER) to provide an open source platform for multimedia, selfpaced training courses designed to build skills in clean energy vocations at lower costs than proprietary packages. NTER offers DOE and other organizations a unified platform to provide state-of-theart training. NTER users earn certifications and demonstrate competency that translate directly into on-the-job performance. Its highly modular design allows it to be used as a stand-alone open-source toolkit or combined with proprietary third-party materials. NTER is a learning management system (LMS) and Content Management System (CMS) that streamlines the delivery of training and content to stakeholders. It was designed to leverage open source code, enabling educators to create content and students to take courses easily. DOE’s mission is to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental, and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions. DOE’s intent has been to transfer stewardship of the platform to an entity within the open source community in order to maximize market adoption while fostering open source, shared learning environments. It is envisioned that one or more non-governmental entities with expertise in open source development of educational content creation and sharing will be most qualified to take over this well-developed product and its customer-base. This RFI seeks input from those entities interested in taking over NTER as well as from impacted parties. The RFI is available at: https://eereexchange.energy.gov.
