2021 Training Series
New Training Series Announcement!
Starting in 2021 Avail will be offering new training outlets for all our customers. This new series of training sessions will span the full functionality of Avail's solutions. Courses will vary from holistic system overviews to feature-specific click-throughs.

These sessions keep slideshows to a minimum so that we can dive into the actual product with live demonstrations. This new series will not be the only avenue for training. In the new year, you'll continue to have access to one-on-one webinars, the Users' Conference Solutions Café sessions, and our training archive on the new customer portal.

The webinars will be split into two categories:
System-Wide Sessions:
Sessions covering FAQs, pain points, and process flow topics from a higher, system-level perspective
Feature Focus:
Laser-focused sessions on specific features and functions that will benefit all positions across the agency.
