The AFPIMS Training Department conducts regular monthly webinars the third Thursday of each month. All webinars are open to all AFPIMS users who would like to learn more about AFPIMS. 

The training team has also designed and developed a special webinar series called "Beyond the Manual." This webinar series will be presented the second Tuesday of each month. Each beyond the manual webinar will detail the finer aspects of AFPIMS that aren't necessarily covered in QRGs or other general training. These are more technical aspects of AFPIMS that dive further into customizing and utilizing the many tools built into your Content Management System.

All webinars are recorded for future viewing and stored on DVIDS (link below). We encourage open discussions and sharing of ideas in our webinars, please join us!

Topic: Contact Form
