    Staff Training Schedule






    Instead of necessarily doing monthly staff programs, I now intend to only do a staff Database Demo when one of our HCPL databases has re-invented itself (such as a new interface), or when HCPL gets a new database, etc. etc.

    In other words, I'm thinking of only doing a new staff Database Demo when something brand new has come up or there is a significant change to one of the previous programs (see below for list).
