Keep in mind

Classes must have three or more students registered in order to run. Classes without sufficient enrollment are pulled from the calendar two weeks prior to the start date. Students shouldn’t book any non-refundable travel until they receive confirmation that the class will be held.

Custom User Education

Customized User Education ensures that users rapidly adapt to the changes in their daily tasks and business processes resulting from the Fortis implementation. Class length and content is determined based on the needs of the user base. Customized training can be made up of several short, task-specific sessions attended by only the people performing those specific tasks.
