Every new Website delivered by Corfun comes with training which is often done in-person. In addition to our new customer training, we are also striving to build a library of training videos to help with refresher training, new hires, and even just demonstrating things the system can do that customers aren't currently using.
Custom video tutorials are available from Corfun. If you need help on a topic, but don't see a tutorial for it below, then
