In order to use the CMS you will need to attend a training session. CMS Training Sessions are run at regular intervals through the year, usually once a month. Please check the course list on the CDSAP website to see when the next session is being held.
User Level Upgrade
All new CMS users are trained at Contributor level. However if the new CMS user needs to be a Moderator for their section they may be upgraded (subject to confirmation with the department/section). When a CMS user has been upgraded from Contributor to Moderator, they will need to complete the Upgrade exercises:
In exceptional circumstances it may be possible for users to self-train. This is only for occasions where it is not possible for the user to attend a CMS training session, and permissions will only be granted to the relevant department/section once their work has been checked. Existing CMS users are welcome to use the Remote Training to refresh their memories if they have not used the CMS regularly.
If you have been told to complete the Remote Training, please download the remote training guide and exercises here:
