ShoWorks Short Course - Texas

George Bush Presidental Library
College Station, TX    November 16th-17th 2017

 

We invite you and your staff to join us this fall for a 2-day intense training workshop on ShoWorks. This short course is open to all ShoWorks users regardless of their experience level - from those who have never laid eyes on the software, to the advanced user seeking to discover new ways to improve and streamline their efficiencies within the program. Every aspect of the program from A to Z will be explored in an auditorium followed by a classroom setting, totaling 14 hours of instructional time, all within the world-class George Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, TX
Questions?
What is the difference between this 'short course' and the spring 'conference'? The number of days, intensity and the time of year and location. The short course is only 2-days vs 3-days for the conference. The short course is also held in the fall/winter whereas the conference is held in the spring at a different location (usually Cody, WY). The material is similar though because of time constraints, we focus on key parts of the software.
What other locations are there? Planning for a California short course is in the works and updates will be posted on our Facebook page.
