Training

Foundation and intermediate courses are available in management planning and in the use of the CMSi software. It is strongly recommended that anyone undertaking CMSi software training should be an experienced management planner or should first have attended the management planning course.

Courses can be held at your offices or in the exeGesIS offices in the UK.

Courses are tailored to meet the needs of individuals and organisations but are based on the course outlines below.
