The FYI Help Centre provides a range of articles, video tutorials, pre-recorded training sessions and masterclasses for new Users and FYI Administrators.
Given all teams have unique workflows and skillsets, your FYI Champion group should view FYI’s training resources in advance of any in-house training. Taking what they know about your practice, you can then tailor a training plan to suit your needs.
Example Training Plan
It is important to develop a training plan to suit the size and structure of your practice. Here is a simple training plan that we recommend using as a starting point for your practice.
Discuss with your Client Success Manager the potential to integrate live training and Q&A sessions throughout this plan.
