UB Web Management

Transforming UB’s digital communications through process and tools

Request Self-Paced Training

DCT participants may request access to a special self-paced training site to familiarize themselves with the UBCMS. This is intended to mirror the material covered in our instructor-led courses.

Experience Required!

We recommend self-paced training for those who are already familiar with web-based content management systems. > Learn more about Self-Paced Training

The training environment is only accessible through a secure UB network connection. If you are logging in from off-campus, you will need to run Virtual Private Network (VPN) software.
