In addition to our traditional classroom format "bring your own laptop" hands-on classes, we have also developed our Basic TMS class for live online presentation. This may be a preferable alternative for those who are dealing with reduced budgets for outside training or are unable to travel to training and would like to receive training at their desk. We schedule online training opportunities as we receive sufficient interest. If you are unable to attend the listed classes but still need training, please email email@example.com with your Agency Name, # of Persons Needing Basic TMS Training, and # of Persons Needing Advanced TMS Training, and Agency Contact Information (phone & email).
In-house training for individual agencies is also available priced on a time and materials basis based on the services requested. In-house training can be presented either with the instructor on-site or over a live internet connection. The on-site Instructor presentation is typically more costly per person than classroom format training. Please contact us for additional information.
All TMS training is done using the latest release of TMS.
