It is mandaorty to complete a training with Advancement & External Relations before receiving Kentico access. If you already have access, please wait until the training is complete before making major edits on a webpage.
To access Kentico you must have an active UW Bothell Access Account. To get UWB credentials, please have your supervisor fill out the form here. Access to a UWB account is not mandatory before receiving training but may be helpful.
Trainings are typically held every other Friday for approximately 1.5 hours. The next training sessions will be held on Friday February 12th from 11am-12:30pm and Friday February 26th from 11am-12:30pm. Due to the fact that Kentico can only handle so many users at one time, there are only four spots available per training. If you're unable to make it to any Friday session, please contact Advancement with your availability for assistance: firstname.lastname@example.org
