Courses are held frequently. Please contact us at training@genus.no for prices, availability and booking.

 

Two types of training

There are held two types of training:

 

  1. Training of end users. Training your end users in your specific usage of Genus Apps, i.e. your application model.

 

  1. Training of modelers and expert users.
    1. Training your modelers in how to set up and maintain your application (model).
    2. Advanced use or development using specific technologies.
    3. Discovery: Training your expert users in how to set up and maintain analysis and reports.

  

Training of end users

We generally recommend to let your own people train your end users. By doing this you ensure local ownership and get valuable feedback. We recommend you to use our partners to train your trainers.

 

In addition, we offer a standard 4 hours course "Basic Navigation in Genus Desktop" which covers the basic principles and standard functionality of our Microsoft Windows client. Functionality covered includes navigation, search and explore, sorting and grouping, view customization, actions and keyboard shortcuts.

 

Independent of how you plan and execute your training, keep in mind that training is crucial for the success of a software application. Train on processes and not technology. Tailor training to your users roles. Consider hands-on training in addition to traditional off-the-job or web training. Do not stop training after deployment; continue training as your business evolves.

 

No training is not an alternative. Your people will be very unlikely to use your new application according to your targets and to its full potential, and the return on your investment will be low.
