Introduction to using 'TimeTabler'

Course Information

  • Price : £225 + VAT
  • Duration : 1 day

The course is very hands-on with delegates using TimeTabler right from the start. The course will lead the delegates through all the steps required in TimeTabler to produce a timetable.

So if you are a brand new timetabler using TimeTabler or interested in TimeTabler then this is the course for you, as you can ask all the questions you need to! Or you may be a timetabler thinking of purchasing TimeTabler, thinking of transferring from Nova T6 or Facility Scheduler to TimeTabler. The course leaders are familiar with all three software solutions so you can ask the questions you need to re-assure yourself.

Timetable workshop days are a good follow on from the Introduction to using TimeTabler, which is an ideal opportunity to progress with your timetable with expert help at hand.
