NDS Trainings

NDS Help Desk offers monthly training sessions for all licensed NDS users. These trainings are geared for new users as well as those who may need a refresher in specific areas. New staff and staff taking on new job responsibilities are usually never more than a month away from training.  NDS users may obtain more information about our trainings on our NDS Support Portal our register for trainings by viewing our Training Catalog.

Registered participants are given a conference center phone number to call (not a toll-free number) as well as access to our training database to use during the training. Trainees login and follow along as they're guided through the session's topic. The sessions are QA format so questions can be asked any time during the session.
