11:00 – 1:00 Questions and Answers – for any users that has been to a CORE CLASS
1 – You should bring only paper and pen to the class. It is much easier to follow the Navica instructor if you can focus your full attention on her presentation.
2 – All classes taught by Navica will be given in the CABR office on Lafayette Street in Marianna.
3 – The last session given by Navica (11:00-1:00 Wednesday) is going to be an open forum, question and answer class. You are strongly encouraged to use the system as soon as you are done with the your training class so that if you have any particular items that you would like to get more training on, you will be know it before that Q&A. You may bring your laptop to the Q&A.
