Monthly training webinars

In response to the increased number of users we are creating more training opportunities to make sure users get the best experience of using SHAPE.¬†Attending training sessions can be expensive and time consuming for our participants so we have decided to use webinars to deliver the training which are free and you don’t need to leave your desk!

We will be hosting an hour long session once a month that anyone can join in. They will be held on the first Wednesday of every month at 10am.

The next webinar will be at 10am on Wednesday 3rd December 2014.
