CMS Services and Training

The University website is managed with a Content Mangement System (CMS). Marketing provides access to, and training for, the CMS. For new CMS users, the first step is to request a CMS Account. You should then RSVP for CMS 101 training. The current CMS training schedule as well as various CMS resources are below.

Upcoming Training Sessions

The Office of Communications offers CMS training and drop-in sessions each month. Please note that RSVPs are required for some sessions. To RSVPs, we will be utilizing the Office of Assessment, Training and Technology's new MyLearning software. This software allows you to RSVP for most training courses offered on campus. To RSVP:

  • Visit http://go.pacific.edu/MyLearning
  • Sign in with your Pacificnet Username and Password
  • In the left-hand navigation, select Schedule and navigate to the course you'd like to RSVP for
  • Click on the course title, then on the "Register" button of the pop-up
  • That's it! You'll receive a confirmation email with a link to add the course to your calendar.

If you have difficulties RSVPing, please contact Staff Learning and Development at 209.946.2097.

Note: All training sessions will be held in the Staff Learning and Development Training Room, located on the second floor of Bannister Hall.
