At d3 we aim to make our software intuitive and easy to use without compromising on flexibility or features. We offer a largely free and structured training course for everyone, as listed below.
Step 1: Webinar
We ask new users to go through all the steps in our training programme. The first segments of this programme take place online, the last part is a live training. As soon as you have d3 installed (d3 Evaluation, d3 Designer, 2U or 4U), we will invite you to attend a 1-hour long webinar. These webinars are held twice weekly, and our instructor will take you through all the d3 basics by sharing their screen with you.
If you do not yet have any d3 product, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an evaluation licence.
Please also check the minimum system requirements to see if you can run d3 on your machine.
Step 2: User Guide and d3 Project set-up
After your webinar, the instructor will stay in touch with you as you self-study your way through our extensive user guide online. You will make your own project in d3, and if needed, the instructor can go through questions you have in 1-on-1 Skype sessions. We’re here to help you.
Step 3: d3 Project Test
Before we invite you to the final 3-day long live training session, the instructor will ask you to share your own project with him to see where we can help prepare you for the final training. You can discuss any areas you have a specific interest in that we can talk you through. We’ll then book you in for the next available training in your vicinity.
Step 4: 3-day live training
Our 3-day live training is a fast-paced and intensive course that won’t waste time on the basics: you’ve already learnt those. There will be a nominal fee for our trainer and/or the space the training is in, this will be discussed with you upon booking. You can request a training session in your area if there are six or more people wanting to participate.
d3 Customers and priority training
If you or your company are considering buying d3, please note that training is free of charge apart from trainer flights & accommodation. We prioritise d3 customers and aim to get your employees trained up in every use as soon as possible after purchase. Next to the 3-day intensive training course, we offer 1-day refresher courses for the 2 consecutive years as part of purchase to keep you and your employees up to speed with the latest features.
We currently hold training sessions in London monthly, training sessions alternating the US east and west coast monthly, as well as training sessions in Europe once every two months. We hope to be adding training in Asia and other parts of the world as we continue to grow. For upcoming session please contact email@example.com. Please note though we will always ask new d3 users to go through the steps listed above before adding them to a live session.
