PLANISWARE ENTERPRISE CERTIFICATION Training Sessions & Schedules Pre-register Overview The Planisware Certification Program offers a wide breadth of topics to fully enable you to manage your Planisware Enterprise implementations. Each topic is covered in one 2-hour, instructor-led, web-based session. Each training session includes: A set of business-minded uses cases to put topics into real world context Demonstrations of product solution for each use case Considerations to advance your understanding of the topic The purpose of these sessions are to extend your knowledge, provide best practices, and provide a deeper understanding Planisware Enterprise. They are not a step-by-step how-to guide; Planisware’s e-learning provides details of the tool. Consider that your instructors have combined over 100 years of experience implementing Planisware – it’s this hands-on knowledge that we wish to impart on you! Each topic is denoted as Core or Advanced as a guide for you to elect which topics to attend. The Advanced topics will not be covered in the Core exam.
