Data Collections Training
As an approved provider it is your responsibility to ensure that you have staff appropriately trained to meet your data requirements. We encourage all members of data collections teams to attend our training sessions regularly as the most current information on new functionality and reporting requirements is provided.
Face to Face training sessions
Training schedule for the 2nd half of 2013 is being finalised. Watch this space for the latest and information will be advertised in our eNews.
Individualised training sessions
Personalised individual and small group sessions are available in Canberra at any time throughout the year. These sessions are a great opportunity to work with the our team and focus on specific challenges your institution might be facing and prepare for the coming year’s reporting requirements.
Please contact us to make arrangements.
A webinar is an interactive web based seminar. It’s a live, online educational presentation where viewers can submit questions and comments. We offer webinars in one hour modules for your convenience.
You may have missed participating in our live webinars so for your convenience we have recorded them. This gives you greater flexibility as they can be reviewed from your desk at a time that suits you.
Note: The webinars are presented as Windows Media Video (WMV) files. As they are between 35MB and 50MB in size it is recommended they be saved to a PC or network location by clicking the thumbnail with the mouse and selecting "Save" (or "Save as") rather than "Open". This will ensure the files can then be viewed by you and your colleagues without the need to download them again.
