Training Services

The Tempest Development Group provides training both at your site and at ours. Initial training courses are held during the implementation phase at your site for a maximum of six participants per class. This training coincides with your data conversion and live dates so that you are confident using the Tempest systems when the cutover from your old system begins.

On-site training at your facility can be provided by Tempest, offering customized training classes for your specific business requirements. Tempest can design a custom instruction package to fit your time and training criteria, including modified and enhanced courses. These courses are a great opportunity to train new staff. They are also a great opportunity for existing staff to receive refresher training so they can take advantage of many of the new features in Tempest and ask specific questions related to your business processes. Clients who have taken advantage of these training opportunities have found them to be very beneficial for learning about new features that have been released, learning how other municipalities use the software, and enhancing their Tempest knowledge. Examples of the some of the training classes offered by Tempest are:
