The foundation of a successful implementation is a comprehensive and timely training program. We work with each district to develop a customized training plan by studying the project plan rollout schedule for each module, the best delivery methods for each target audience, the outcomes of specialty group meetings, and the time constraints to complete the training with participants demonstrating mastery.
Focus trainers have educational backgrounds and trained for school districts before joining the Focus team.
Focus believes different training methods need to be offered to meet the needs of the users. We offer webinar sessions, on-line tutorials, on-line curriculum with end of session evaluations, and site-based hands-on training sessions that provide the needed variety of techniques.
An intensive 4-day Level 1 Certification program designed for IT technical staff is also available and strongly recommended.
To date, Focus has provided this Level 1 Certification to over 500 district staff, giving them the knowledge and tools needed to customize Focus solutions using SQL.
Focus offers weekly webinars that provide relevant information, from discussions of new features to how to perform certain processes. These forums are a great way to learn more and ask questions about Focus. Best of all, they are free! See the list below for upcoming topics and click HERE to register.
