First Thursday Basic Training hits the spot with new users

We have started a monthly online training session for new users of Demographix every first Thursday of the month. Called "First Thursday Basic Training" (FTBT) – well, what else! – our initial sessions have been a big success, and much appreciated by both beginners and those wanting a refresher.

Users access the training through a browser-based conferencing system and can use headsets or phones to take part. It is free to any user of Demographix with a subscription and login.

The 75-minute course allows new users to get an overview of the system, and be confident enough to start creating surveys after we demo all the basic skills. We also give handy tips on data protection laws, outline some common starter errors, and show how to use the core analysis and reporting toolsets.

A link to apply for a place in one of the sessions is given below. If we have a space for you on a First Thursday Basic Training (FTBT) course, we will then send details of how to access the training session online from your desktop wherever you’re working.

Numbers for each session are limited, and offered on a "first come, first served" basis.
