We recommend you watch these self-paced, online training modules before you come to our instructor-led class, or later, after you have set up your website so that you have access to UBCMS and can immediately practice your new skills.

Self-paced, hands-on training provides participants with the opportunity to learn and practice using the UBCMS at their own pace (recommended for those who are already familiar with web-based content management systems).

Instructor-Led Courses

The Division of University Communications is pleased to provide instructor-led, hands-on training courses for UB Content Management System (UBCMS) users.
