  5. Training Methodology Notes on Today’s Training • Training content has been developed over a period of time, concurrently with the development of SFS. • The data used throughout the training is meant to simulate as close to a realistic experience as possible however this data is not to be used outside of the training environment. • In the instances where data, SFS screens, or functionality has changed, this will be communicated during training. • As trainers, you are encouraged to customize training to meet the needs of your agency, especially if you have unique business processes. Remember that these may come over time!
