Onspring trainers are experienced Onspring administrators from our Services team. Trainers share real examples and practical insights from years of experience delivering Onspring solutions for customers across industries.

The Onspring Essentials and Feature Bootcamp classes are focused on platform configuration. The training is product-neutral, meaning you can apply the skills you develop to any business process or use case. Trainers are adept at demonstrating Onspring functionality within various use cases that interest training participants, making the instruction relevant and meaningful.

If you need end-user training on your specific Onspring implementation, our Professional Services team will be happy to help. End-user training and/or documentation are frequently included in Onspring services engagements. Additionally, we offer end-user guides for our core products, available via the Onspring Community.

You’ll receive a lab guide, featuring a series of hands-on skill labs that guide you through applying the knowledge you learn in class directly to real-world use cases within the Onspring interface.

If you are attending an in-person training course with Onspring, you’ll need your laptop to participate in the learning sessions and hands-on labs.

Onspring will provide a lab instance where you will perform configuration activities. You will not need to access your company’s Onspring instance during the training class.

Certification is attained by passing an exam that includes platform concept questions along with hands-on configuration challenges.

Onspring Essentials participants will receive the opportunity to complete the exam at the time of their training. Completion of Onspring Essentials training, including 100% completion of the hands-on lab activities, is a prerequisite to take the certification exam going forward.

If you have previously taken Onspring Essentials training or have 3+ years of proven experience as an Onspring Administrator, you can participate without retaking Onspring Essentials if you wish. If you meet this criteria, you can register for an exam session in the Onspring Community. There is a flat fee to take the exam outside of Onspring Essentials training, which will be charged at the time of the registration. Sign up for an upcoming exam session>

Your exam will be scheduled in a two-week session during which you can move through the questions and configurations at your own pace, saving your progress as you go. If you pass the exam with a score of 80% or better, you’ll earn the Onspring Certified Administrator – Level 1 credential. Additional levels of certification will be announced once they are available.

Our advice for improving your Onspring administrator skills is two-fold:

Join our regular Free Friday Training Sessions. In each session, you’ll gain insights and advice for Onspring use in different programs and processes, plus administrative education on Onspring platform features.

Join Onspring Connect user events. All customer events are designed to help you improve how you use Onspring. Attend these events to see how other customers build dashboards and processes in Onspring, and ask for their advice on where you may need help or have ideas to develop.

Remember, after you complete Onspring Essentials and Bootcamp training courses, you’ll have access to your lab instance for 30 days. Use this environment to practice and experiment with configurations if you do not have a development environment.

You may cancel your registration for any training class for a full refund up to 7 days before the class begins, if you paid separate from your license. After that point, you may request to transfer your registration to another participant or another scheduled class session. Email training@onspring.com for assistance.
