We've transitioned many of our workshops to an in-person, online format. Check back - we'll be offering more soon!
Self-Guided Online Training
Whether you've had to miss a scheduled, in-person workshop as a result of the University of Minnesota's closing to combat COVID-19, or you simply prefer self-paced, online training, check out these third party tutorials and guides as alternatives to our regularly scheduled workshops!
