Kentico Training

Kentico Training Overview

Advancement and External Relations offers an introductory class for UW Bothell web publishers and editors who use Kentico to maintain web pages for their department, program or school. In this approximately one and a half hour class users will learn how to:

  • Create and edit web pages
  • Create and edit text (copy/paste, headings, tool bar)
  • Manage images (insert, resize)
  • Create different types of hyper links (web, content, file, email)
  • Practice page management (Properties, Checkout, Publish, etc.)
  • Become familiar with online resources (documentation, UW branding guidelines, accessibility concerns, etc.)


It is mandatory 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 web page.

To access Kentico you must have an active UW Bothell Access Account (UWBID). A portion of the training is interactive and requires the trainees to login to Kentico; those interested in a training must have a UWBID before attending. To get UWB credentials, please have your supervisor fill out the form here. A UWBID and UW NetID are two seperate accounts. For more information about these accounts, please visit IT's Access Account request page.

Training Information

Trainings are typically held every other Friday for approximately 1.5 hours. The next training sessions will be held on Friday April 22nd and Friday May 6th from 10:30am to 12pm. 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 or you need to meet at a different time, please contact Advancement with your availability for assistance:


To sign-up for training, please email the UWB IT helpdesk at and include the following:

  1. In the subject line put "Kentico Training"
  2. In the body include your full name, UWBID, department, and supervisor.
    If requesting for multiple people, include their information as well.
  3. Which session you would like to attend (posted above).

Supervisors do not have to make training requests for their employees but are welcome to.

The user receiving the training will get a training confirmation via Outlook calendar invite with the location and training details from the Kentico trainer Ashley Magdall.

Kentico Access

Once you have received training, you may request access to Kentico pages. To request editing rights please fill out the CMS Request Form. After you have submitted this form, an email will be sent to the page's Primary Publisher; only the Primary Publisher of that page will be able to grant you access.

If the site you want access to is not listed on the form, please email and the Office of Advancement & External Relations will assist you.

If you are a Primary Publisher and you are unsure of how to grant access, please see our instructions on the CMS Access Request Administration page.
