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

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.

You will leave with a certificate of completion and skills to empower you as a TDS administrator!
