    Additional information
    • This is an assessed course, meaning an 80% pass mark needs to be achieved in order to successfully complete the course. 
    • This course does not cover local practices and processes for the use of the PND, as it is expected that these will be covered locally.
    • Users who require both basic and advanced PND search user functionality can opt to attend the consolidated PND search user course (four days) instead.

    Dates

    At present, the College does not deliver PND search user courses as part of its scheduled ICT training, but can deliver them where a specific demand for this training exists. 

    This could either be delivered at the College’s Ryton site or at an organisation’s own site, provided the venue meets the PND system’s technical requirements.
