User training is a fulfilling process for Network Ninja and our clients. Online instruction is standard, but for a personal and interactive experience, we always recommend in-person training as well.

Typically, this entails a single training specialist (like Ted up there) traveling to the client - but when the opportunity arises for more Collaborate staff to get in on the act, we get really excited.

Such is the case with Children’s Advocacy Centers of Illinois (CACI), which will hold their 11th Annual Champions of Children Conference on March 3rd and 4th, 2020.

At the two-day event, hundreds of CAC staff from 39 member centers will convene to network with peers and train on topics like Working Effectively with the MDT and Digital Forensics. This year, they’ll also be doing a special refresher training with Network Ninja to help master their statewide Collaborate implementation, which went live in late 2019.

A Collaborative Training Effort

CACI staff will train on Wednesday, March 4 at 1:15pm and 3:00pm on a variety of beginner and advanced Collaborate functionality, including best practices for managing Documents, Assignments, Tasks, Alerts, and Reports.

The training is also a chance for social workers, law enforcement, and other MDT members to ask specific questions of Collaborate experts, and brainstorm new ideas to make the software even better. Register now to attend the conference, and we’ll see you in March!

“We’re proud to take part in the Champions of Children conference. As a new Illinois resident, I’m excited to be able to meet so many of CACI’s staff in person. I look forward to gaining more insight into the CAC world, which will ultimately help me better support our clients.”
