CEDRA Web Based TrainingTM

On-line training for New and Experienced Users

The CEDRA Corporation is pleased to announce a new on-line training program called CEDRA-Web Training.

Utilizing the latest web based interactive meeting technology, the CEDRA-Web Training program enables new and advanced CEDRA users to attend authorized CEDRA training classes at the comfort of their desk. No travel and/or overnight hotel stays are required, but rather, students get the full benefit of a formal or a customized training class directly from within their office.

CEDRA's on-line training courses are comprised of lectures and exercises, with a strong emphasis on demonstrating the use and application of the tools provided by the appropriate CEDRA software. Training classes are specifically designed to encourage student participation so that students are able to get answers to questions right on the spot.

Utilizing demonstration data and/or student’s data, qualified instructors guide the student through structured exercises to help develop confidence using the applicable CEDRA software. Training classes are available for all of CEDRA's ArcView® GIS and ArcGIS® based products, as well as, the Avenue Wraps publication. In addition, customized training classes are available for those users who wish to have training on specific CEDRA functionality.

The CEDRA-Web Training program was designed to: (a) get new users started in the right direction as to how to use and implement CEDRA software and (b) educate experienced users in getting the most out of the CEDRA software which they are using.

The standard courses offered in the CEDRA-Web Training program provide core knowledge in the use of CEDRA software, while the customized training courses, in conjunction with client data, provide experienced users valuable information in becoming more proficient with CEDRA software. As a matter of fact, one could consider the customized training courses as an on-line consulting service.

How does the CEDRA Web Training program work

Students attending CEDRA on-line classes are required to have a Windows based PC, access to the web via a high-speed connection, and a telephone.

In order to attend a CEDRA web based training class, the student must first install the MeetMeNow client software. The software can be downloaded from http://www.cedra.com/webmeeting/ where a file called WebExMeetMeNow.exe can be found. Right-click on the name of the file and select the Save Target As... menu item. Navigate to a location on the PC's hard drive and start the download. Once the file has been downloaded, execute or run the WebExMeetMeNow.exe file. The file will install the MeetMeNow client software, after which, a login display may or may not appear. If a login display appears, click the X in the upper right corner to dismiss the display. The required software for attending a CEDRA web based training class has now been installed.

If the student wishes to remove the client software, the student can invoke Control Panel, double-click the Add or Remove Programs icon, single-click on the WebEx MeetMeNow software listing and click the Change/Remove button.

Once a class has been selected by the student and the appropriate order form submitted, a mutually agreeable date and time is setup between the student(s) and CEDRA.

A phone number, URL address and meeting number are provided to the student(s) at which point, the student(s) dial the phone number and access the URL address. The URL address is typically http://meetmenow.webex.com. After accessing this web page, in the upper right corner of the screen there will be a data field containing the text Insert Meeting Number. The student enters the meeting number in this data field followed by depressing the Enter key.

Once all of the students have accessed the site, the instructor begins the class. Training classes are typically 60 to 90 minutes in length depending upon the number of questions which are raised during the session. On the student's PC, the display of the instructor's PC will appear. As the instructor conducts the class, the student sees every movement made by the instructor.

The telephone connection is basically a conference call where students can ask questions freely and as often as they like. Communication with the instructor is almost as if the instructor was seated next to the student.

This type of atmosphere is ideal for new users getting started, as well as, for experienced users desiring training on new features which have been incorporated into the software. Pricing is on a per student basis with a maximum of 9 students per training class.
