Training Schedule

Our introductory and intermediate training sessions are designed to give SmartyGrants users affordable and practical training. Each attendee has access to a computer in the lab to allow them to practice skills throughout the session.

Note for introductory SmartyClasses: You have the option to register for one or both introductory classes on the same day. It is recommended, however, that participants attend one class per day as attending two classes on one day can be too much information to absorb. If your process timeline is urgent and you do wish to attend both sessions on the same day you are welcome to do so.
