Venus Control Suite Training Options

Welcome back to the Venus Control Suite blog!

Two weeks ago we kicked off this blog with a 3-part series titled All About Venus Control Suite that went over the basics of our new software and explained how it works. Since this blog is brought to you by the Software Training group, it wouldn’t be complete without mentioning training opportunities!

Self-guided training

We have a number of training options available for Venus Control Suite, starting with the Venus Control Suite Learning Center. This FREE website can be used to supplement your web-based learning (see below) or even as a self-guided training and includes:

  • Videos that provide walkthroughs.
  • Printable worksheet tutorials with step-by-step instructions.

Whether you are preparing for an upcoming training, or would rather self-learn, the lessons in the Venus Learning Center will provide valuable information to assist you with operating Venus Control Suite.

Trainer Tip: Be sure to click on all the Tabs running left to right across the top of the page when you are in the Venus Control Suite Learning Center. Each tab will bring you to a different section of the software and share unique information with you.

If you have the time, then be sure to click through all 7 tabs (INTRO – DASHBOARD – MEDIA LIBRARY – WEB COMPOSITOR – CONTENT STUDIO – SCHEDULING – MORE INFO) before you finish!


Web seminar and webinar training sessions

We also offer live training sessions with professional trainers, as well. These web-based trainings are broken down into 2 categories. Read below to see which category you most prefer!

Do you prefer exploring our new software with other students? During this session, you’ll benefit from hearing other attendees’ questions, ideas, and comments. Your instructor is a professional Daktronics trainer who helps people operate their message displays every day.

If you answered yes to the above question, then you prefer our Online Classroom Style Training and would be best suited to attend a web seminar!

Want a trainer all to yourself? We offer one-on-one sessions with a professional Daktronics trainer for all Venus Control Suite packages. Your trainer will develop a custom session designed for your specific marketing needs. We’ll work with you to fit  the session into your schedule.

If you answered yes to the above question, then you prefer our One-on-One Online Training and would be best suited to attend a webinar!

Keep in mind  that all of our trainings are recorded, and we will send you a link to your training recording via email after we finish up the training session. We recommend that you save it as a favorite or bookmark it for future use.
