CiviCRM User and Administrator Training - Washington DC (March 2011)

 Registration is closed for this event
A comprehensive two day hands on training course covering the configuration, administration, and every-day use of CiviCRM. This event is aimed at administrators and technical users at organizations that are either using CiviCRM or interested in evaluating it. It will also be useful for client facing staff that work at organizations that develop or implement CiviCRM, as well as developers who work on customizing and extending CiviCRM and need a complete understanding of "out of the box" features and configuration options.

We try to be flexible with the agenda to meet participant requirements and expectations, and the final agenda may change.  Topics will include:

  • An introduction to CiviCRM - what does it do and how can it help your organisation
  • Installation and configuration - making CiviCRM work for you
  • Custom data and profiles - extending CiviCRM to meet your data requirements
  • CiviCRM components - including event, mail, member, contribute, case, report, grant and pledge
  • Website integration - the whys and hows of making CiviCRM work with Joomla or Drupal
  • Support and the CiviCRM community - what happens after this training

The session will include a series of hands-on exercises using specially configured training installations of CiviCRM.  Participants should bring a laptop with wifi capabilities to this training to they can take part in these exercises.  If you are new to CiviCRM, we strongly recommend that you read the free online book - CiviCRM a comprehensive guide - in preparation for the training.
