Adapting HIFIS Training to your Organization

Which features you have decided to implement, the size and complexity of your organization, previous HIFIS experience and the needs of the learners will determine which training is required.

Think about which modules your users need to learn. For example, if your organization is a shelter, your users may not need to know about the goods and services module. You can print the Tables of Contents for the Basics and Beyond the Basics courses on the HIFIS 3 Training Centre.

The HIFIS 3 Training Centre was designed to allow users to learn what they need to learn, when they need to learn it. Learners can set aside a block of time and go through all the modules one after another, or select specific modules or topics for study dividing their learning into short segments. Learners can repeat modules as often as necessary to learn the information.

You may consider making proof of training completion a requirement before providing staff with a HIFIS user id and password.

To obtain proof of completion
The HIFIS Basics course ends with a Knowledge Check for Shelters and Non-shelters, which contains multiple choice and true/false questions to test the user’s knowledge. It also offers two software simulations (one for Shelter and one for non-shelters), to test the learner’s ability to complete basic tasks. To obtain proof that learners have mastered the skills necessary to begin using HIFIS, consider asking for a screen print of their successful completion of these knowledge checks and simulations.

Each module in HIFIS Basics and Beyond the Basics also ends with a knowledge check and/or simulation. If you are interested in testing specific knowledge or skills, you could also ask learners to print the results of a specific module knowledge check.

The next pages give suggestions for different training options with the HIFIS 3 Training Centre, depending on the amount of previous experience the learner has with HIFIS.
