Training Course Entity

We'll configure a courses record form that will capture all the detail specific to your training delivery process:

  1. Assign the date and time for each course and track all courses using a group calendar view (see below)
  2. Manage bookings for each training venue
  3. Set course duration to automatically calculate end times
  4. Manage course accreditation by setting certification terms for each session
  5. Profile courses by type including public workshop, private tuition, webinar and more
  6. Associate contacts with each course including delegates, speaker and trainer

Manage Each Delegate

Profile and segment each course delegate by tracking booking detail:

  1. Associate each delegate record with a course record and contact
  2. Automatically calculate certification expiry dates and use this data to handle renewal processes
  3. Create personalised training certificates for each delegate record using pre-defined Word templates
  4. Profile each course delegate with a status reason e.g. interest, paid, attended and did not attend
  5. Send joining instruction emails using a field triggered automated process
  6. Input course fees paid, or even import from an external data source
