Why attend Controller’s Boot Camp?
Here are some comments about this training from our last group of very satisfied students:
If you need to obtain a better overview of how NAV functions this would be an excellent class for you to attend. Very knowledgeable instructors and easy to talk with.
Very helpful & informative no matter if you’re starting out or have been doing it for years.
Even though I have been using NAV for a number of years, I still learned a great deal in this class. I wish something like this had been offered when I first started with NAV.
The material was very relevant and no matter how much experience you have with NAV, you will come away will a better understanding of the system and how you can better use it for your organization. Regardless of what stage you are in with NAV, the Boot Camp is a very immersive class, that will teach you how to use the program, teach you some tricks or even an awesome refresher. It was great to be in one room with others that use NAV. Lunches and breaks were not only a great time to network, but to discuss similar issues in NAV and how they worked around it.
I really appreciated how Kerry and Amanda were able to provide answers to “why” things need to be done in NAV a certain way. Their real-world experience gave them unique insight and they were able to explain how to use the system the right way to avoid mistakes and errors down the road.
The trainers with New View Strategies who lead this class are amazing! I learned so much more from them than I ever expected. Their many years of good and bad experiences with Nav make them perfect for teaching others. I would definitely recommend them if you use Nav now or are considering it in the future!!!
