The course is aimed at:

  • Administrators at organisations who have decided to start using CiviCRM

  • Implementers and developers who want to  increase their understanding of CiviCRM from the end user and administrator perspective

The course includes a series of practical exercises using specially configured installations of CiviCRM.

Joe Murray, co-author of Using CiviCRM, Stuart Gaston, principal of CiviTeacher, and Eliot Mason of Mercury Motos will be leading the course.

Participants should bring a laptop to the training so they can take part in the exercises.  If you are new to CiviCRM, we recommend that you give yourself a good understanding of the basics of CiviCRM by browsing the free online book in preparation for the training.
