Web training

UFV web editor basic training is a hands-on, self-guided course that covers web best practices and gives you all the tools you need to maintain a website using UFV’s content management system, TerminalFour (T4). The course is organized into two modules that include quizzes, videos, training exercises, and a training area to apply what you’ve learned.

To become a web editor at UFV, you will need to complete both modules and pass the assessments. Depending on your job responsibilities and requirements, you may take one of the training modules only.
