First week of ctcLink just-in-time training for FirstLink colleges

ctcLink “go-live” is just 5 weeks away!

To prepare for the planned February 23 go-live date for FirstLink colleges (Tacoma and Spokane), this week FirstLink colleges embarked on week one of just-in-time training, which will continue through February. This week’s training was held in Spokane and several Tacoma finance/purchasing staff members made the trip to attend the training there.

This week’s topics included Requisitions, Purchase Orders and Purchasing, Managing the Course Catalog and Schedule of Classes, and the VERY important process of Activating and Enrolling Students. Next week the training moves to Tacoma and will include Academic Advising, Grade Evaluation and several Financial Aid courses. THANKS to all the trainers for the hard work you’ve put in so far and THANKS to TCC and Spokane trainees for being there and to TCC and Spokane project leadership for your time, expertise, logistics assistance, and beyond!

On the slim chance that any of you FirstLink college trainees are reading this blog post before you head out for the weekend ;-), just a quick reminder that if you haven’t already, please review the ctcLink “Fundamentals” course in your subject area before you attend any training. See the Fundamentals links at left on the ctcLink Training website.

Have a great weekend everyone. GO HAWKS!
