Training

For New Customers

Eagle Software is acutely aware of the importance of adequate training of the Aeries users in all new implementations. We provide training in the Aeries application that is extensive, comprehensive, and thorough.

Eagle Software will work with the District to develop a training plan specifically designed for and based on the unique needs and background of your unique organization. The resulting Aeries course curriculum will provide a level of knowledge that will ensure successful use of Aeries by all users.

Aeries end user training for the district office and school staff should be delivered as close as possible to the first time use of the software, and carefully coordinated with the data conversion and “go live” dates for the schools.

On-site Training is available for a flat-rate of $ 1,500.00 per day, including any travel expenses incurred. Eagle Software also offers training in our Anaheim offices at a discounted rate. Please contact training@aeries.com to inquire about this discount.
