Slam & Jam

The Big Lie

The Big Lie About ERP Training

You don't need formal project team training.

JDEtips Training

JDEtips is, to our knowledge, the only firm that provides full scale JDE training with these features:

  • Extremely detailed manuals with hundreds of step-by-step screenshots, and dozens of hands on exercises. Our manuals become reference books which are still useful many years after you go live.

  • Public classes that are all Guaranteed to Run. When you sign up for a class, you are 100% guaranteed that the class will be held. JDEtips public classes are held four hours per day with an instructor-led virtual training environment.

  • Private classes where the content and emphasis can be tailored to your specific needs.

  • Instructors that have 15+ years of JDE experience. They love to teach, but they also spend the majority of their time doing implementation consulting.

Our clients will typically book a combination of several weeks of private training, supplemented by our public classes for some topics.

My recommendation? Take control of your JDE training. It's your project and your money. Let your SI know that you want the real deal—full scale training, early in your project.
