Our learning path is a structured framework that uses a building-block approach to learning.

The Getting Started Series
These courses are designed for new user of Sage 300 to teach the basic features of Sage 300 modules and how to use them effectively. All classes will teach setup procedures, how to enter and post transactions, how to use key reports and inquiries, proper periodic processing procedures and tips to speed data entry, always using hands-on exercise and a step by step approach. The Getting Started series is a pre-requisite for the other courses, unless you have at least 6 months of experience using Sage 300.
Getting The Most Series
This series of courses is designed for people with some experience but no formal training in Sage 300. While it is possible to learning from experience it can be time-consuming and expensive, and some time risky. Would you go to a self-taught doctor who has no formal training and certification, but has learned only by experience? Not on your life! However, quite often, an important part of learning comes from on-the-job-training and work experience. We’ve all heard the old saying “experience is the best teacher.” There’s a lot of truth in that saying. But to learn everything you need to know by experience to perform your job effectively would be costly beyond description. Also, we have often meet people who say they have five years’ experience using the software, when in fact they have one year experience repeated five times.

As with all our courses here are clear objectives and an abundant opportunity for self-assessment ensuring learning is organized and to the point.

Refresher Training
Often we have found companies provide training for Sage 300 users during the implementation phase of the project. During implementation, users are trying to absorb as much as they can in a short period of time while also attempting to keep up with their everyday workload. Typically the absorption and retention rate of what they’ve learned is often anywhere from 40% to 60%. After a few months this may drop to and even lower number. This is an ideal candidate for the refresher training series.

Also since the original implementation the chances are your business has evolved and your processes may need to as well. Refresher training will take your users through the additional functionality that you may already own, but aren’t using.

Refresher training series empowers your employees to make business process improvements. If they understand how the system functions, they can make clear, informed decisions on how to improve processes.

How do you know if you need refresher training?
One of the most proving ways to determine this is to ask any one of your Sage 300 users, “Why do you do it that way?” It’s time to schedule refresher training, if their response is “Because that’s what I was told to do.”

Expert Level – Extending Your Knowledge
You should have a firm grasp of the basics before taking this advanced Accounts Payable training course. By the end of this session, you will have mastered the advanced features and functions of this software. You will also gain an understanding of the tables and data flow of the accounts payable module. We will focus on the extended functionality of the module with the aid of add-on products.  While we do not endorse any particular product it is often help for users to see how they can save time doing repetitive tasks, freeing up time for management of the organization’s goals.

 What skills does an Expert Level individual have?

An expert is a person with the special skills and knowledge representing mastery of a particular testing subject. Being an expert means possessing and displaying special skills and knowledge derived from training and experience and being able to apply that knowledge in real-life situations.

An expert is one that combines a broad understanding of business process in general with an in-depth understanding in a special accounting and management area. An in-depth understanding means sufficient knowledge of accounting theory and practice to be able to influence the direction that an organization and/or project takes when creating, implementing and executing the business process activities related to the special area.
