  • Do you have employees who need to quickly get up to speed with TDS?
  • Do you have new staff who need a solid, holistic understanding of TDS?
  • Are you in an office that is implementing TDS for the first time?

If you said yes to any of the questions above, this program is ideal for you.

Terra Dotta Boot Camp is a 2-day, hands-on, immersive workshop designed to rapidly build your skills as a Terra Dotta administrator.

As a participant, you will receive access to your own Terra Dotta practice site for 30 days.  You will start with a blank copy of the software and wind up with a complete site similar to those used in real-world applications.

Experienced instructors will guide you through exercises that teach core features for building your site and completing daily tasks and processes.
