New User Training
User Policy and Agreement
User Policy Agreement form is available here: Addendum_E_HMIS User Policy July2010rev
All Maine HMIS users must read, acknowledge and sign the HMIS/ServicePoint User Policy, Responsibilities Statement, and Code of Ethics before they are allowed access to the HMIS system.
Currently, we offer an online option for standard workflow (residential programs) New User training via GoTo Training on the first Thursday of the month from 10am-12pm. We also offer online Home to Stay and PATH/Outreach specific trainings (follow links below for scheduling/registration).

Note: Our GoTo Training software assumes that each registrant will have a distinct email address and will not allow two registrations for the same email address for the same class. In terms of things like on-line tests the assumption is each participant will login using a different machine so that the test represents their work not a group effort.
