Site Executive Content Management System (CMS) - Part 1

In order to encourage everyone to take advantage of the many benefits of the CMS there will be no charge for this training. This training class is required in order to use the CMS and there is no charge for using the CMS. Spaces will be limited and available on a first-come basis. Training manuals, hands on exercises, and demonstrations will be included in the class. The main advantage to the CMS is that it will enable web developers to make web development changes without needing to know any HTML or use any FTP program (unlike the current/previous web development process.)
