New User Training
Policy and Agreement
User Policy Agreement form is available here: HMIS / SERVICEPOINT USER POLICY AGREEMENT
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 new user training. We also offer online Emergency Shelter and Housing Assistance Program, PATH/Outreach, and Transitional/Permanent Housing specific trainings (follow links below for scheduling/registration). If you would like to discuss scheduling an ad hoc training, please contact the HMIS Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
