Online FINAH BI Tools Training

Live training using FINAH data was offered by Plante Moran in 2020. The customized training guides below were created from these sessions.

The train-the-trainer approach

We strongly suggest a train-the-trainer approach, where those who attended the live sessions in 2020 train others using the documentation created by the training vendor below. This method not only reinforces the trainer's knowledge but offers the benefit of their team-specific business knowledge.

You must have FINAH Activity Hub Report Developer Access in order to complete the FINAH BI Tools Training.
