Amplify Your Cost Insight Experience with our Hands-On Product Training Programs
aPriori will be offering 3 training classes at this year’s Cost Insight conference. Each of these programs is an exceptional way for new users to quickly develop an understanding of key features and functions that aPriori provides to help accomplish day-to-day cost estimation tasks. Open to aPriori customers and the general public, classes will be taught by aPriori’s professional trainers and will leverage the capabilities of our Virtual Training Environment – the aPriori PLAYBOX. Attendees use their own laptop computers to access our web-based training modules and the trainers walk students through lessons and practical exercises that will have you accelerate up the learning curve.
For any aPriori customer, you may use pre-paid training vouchers to take these classes. Please contact your Sales Director or Customer Success Manager for more information.
