- How many courses are in Workfront Ascent? There are over 50 courses available, with many more on the way.
- I see you’ve significantly cut down the training time for live courses. Is there any change in the content? The content has changed slightly. The bulk of the time savings came from refining the course content, removing breaks, and eliminating practice exercises that used to be part of the live classes.
- Are you still offering test environments for training courses? Yes, we will continue to offer a test environment for use throughout your training. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with instructions. Although we have removed the exercises from the webinar training classes, each session is designed to engage learners with the trainer and the content. We are creating new workshops that will further leverage the use of test environment accounts and exercises.
