Basic training

Learn how to update and maintain your website

If you would like to make basic changes to your unit's website – such as adding or deleting text, images, or videos – sign up for basic training.

After you have registered, we will ask you to complete our 30-minute basic training module. This consists of a 20-minute instructional video, and a 10-minute assignment to test what you’ve learned. Once you successfully complete this training assignment with an acceptable passing score, we will add you as a user to your unit's website, so you can make basic changes to existing pages.

Website administrator training

Learn how to build and manage your website

Administrator training, previously known as advanced training, is designed for existing Site Builder users who will be responsible for managing a website. You will require local administrator status in order to create or delete sections, link pages within a website’s navigation and manage user permissions for a site.

This training module focuses on how to build, maintain, and change your website structure, and how to add and manage users on your website. It consists of a video tutorial and assignment. Once you successfully complete this assignment with a passable score, we can make you a local admin for your website.
