Training Methods


Users from the same company gather at one location.

If 3 or more people need training, it is most economical to have a CMMS Data Group consultant come to your plant and work with you and your team there.

Training topics are set by each plant.


Users from different companies across the country meet at various training centers to share and gain knowledge.

If only 1 or 2 users need to be trained, offsite training is the best option because it is less expensive than onsite training. With offsite training, interruptions are kept to a minimum because attendees are away from the plant. Additional knowledge is gained by working with classmates from other plants by sharing best practices and learning how they use their software.

Training topics are based on a set agenda.
