Training Outline and Registration

FairEntry Support Team -

Live webinar trainings are hosted bi-weekly (every other week) year-round. The training sequence below is the recommended order in which the training content will make the most sense. If you have never seen how FairEntry works, we recommend viewing a FairEntry demo video to get a general idea of how the program works and the features that are included. You are welcome to take the trainings below as many times as needed. There is no extra charge for the standard webinar trainings.

As our developers add and improve items in the system, based on customer feedback (yes, we do care about those post-fair surveys) you will notice those new items and changes appear in your account automatically. Please follow us on twitter or visit the updates section of the Help Center for details on newly published items. Applicable help documents and videos are updated as changes are made to the system.
