1st Wednesday = File Maintenance
2nd Wednesday = Route Sheets and Work
3rd Wednesday = Billing
4th Wednesday = Reports
Onsite with a certified CLIP Trainer
One of the most effective methods of training is to bring a senior CLIP trainer to your office for one or two days. Our trainers work with your information in CLIP and other office systems, with your staff, in your environment.
Not only does this allow you to focus on your specific questions and training needs, each member of your staff is able to meet with the trainer as their schedule allows. Just as importantly, all CLIP trainers bring to the training experience in business consulting for green industry companies. This expertise enables them to make suggestion about business ideas and show you how CLIP can be incorporated into your whole business to add to your success.
Personalized Remote CLIP Training
A certified CLIP trainer can log on to your system and train your office personnel in your copy of CLIP using your data. While talking with you or your staff on the phone, the trainer can answer your questions and show you how to most effectively use your program. These personalized training sessions can be for an hour or two-hour increments. The trainer contacts you prior to the session to determine your training needs.

Which is best for you?
Each of these training opportunities has their strengths and weaknesses. Classes are most economical, but have many students and cannot always deal thoroughly with your specific questions. Personalized training focuses exclusively on your needs, but cost more to bring the trainer online to you.
If you are brand new to CLIP, and there’s one that fits into your schedule, the class provides a great introduction and overview.
If you have several people to train, want to focus on specific aspects of the program in a more in-depth way, or learn one of the modules, personalized online training is ideal.
If you have a few specific questions you need to have answered to overcome an obstacle or move to the next stage of using the program, then online remote training covers this very well, and allows you the flexibility of one-hour increments.
