Mitchell 1 To Host Series of Shop Management Training Webinars

Mitchell 1 will offer six courses covering the most popular topics from the two-day workshop curriculum, offered free of charge.

Mitchell 1 has announced the schedule for its Manager SE Shop Management Training Webinar Series, a new format for its Manager SE shop management software workshop that the company says will make the training more accessible and convenient, and allow more users to attend and benefit from the training.

“For the first time, we are sharing Manager SE training course material outside a single classroom – bringing it right to our users’ computers,” said Tim McDonnell, senior market manager for Mitchell 1 shop management. “This internet-based delivery will allow us to reach those who are unable to attend our live events, and give them an opportunity to learn about their shop management system from the convenience of their home or office.”

Mitchell 1 will offer six courses covering the most popular topics from the two-day workshop curriculum, offered free of charge. The courses are led by McDonnell and will include time for live Q&A. The company says this new webinar series comes in response to many requests to make the Manager SE training workshop material available to a broader audience than can be accommodated in a traditional classroom setting.
