Platform Training

In the Platform Training, we teach users how to create web pages, news items, and events on our legacy system called the Platform. We describe in detail how to format text, add images, write hyperlinks, and arrange menu items. Additionally, a JIRA Training will also be included at the end for any users who will be web liaisons and will need to create support requests through JIRA.
