CMS Essentials I

For the foreseeable future, all workshops will be presented via Zoom. All those registered for the workshop will receive an email with the Zoom link the morning of or day before the session. If the session is closed, you may contact us at to see if there is still space in the workshop.

You may find it helpful to view this CMS Sunflower video overview before the Essentials training. The video provides a rationale for site migration as well as a sneak peak at some of the new CMS Sunflower features.
