The AGS welcomes the BRE and First Steps initiative and look forward to working with them to develop courses relevant and useful to Members.
The Data Format WG are the first to seize the opportunity and are already working with First Steps to develop a course on electronic data (non software specific) aimed particularly at new users. The WG will provide the content and speakers and the first course will run in October.
Companies with a training need are invited to contact First Steps to discuss their requirements.
While the AGS is pleased about this development, and will co-operate to assist Members, the relationship with First Steps is not exclusive. The Business Practice WG has taken on responsibility for training in general and will be happy to work with other training providers to cater for Members’ interests.
