Orbis has developed a powerful eTraining platform, along with curricula for our industry-leading assessment tools. We have also created comprehensive customized curricula, designed specifically to train client staff on the use of proprietary software.
eTraining for YASI, SPin and SPIn Re-entry
eTraining for YASI (Youth Assessment and Screening Instrument), eTraining for SPIn (Service Planning Instrument) and eTraining for SPIn Re-entry (Service Planning Instrument Re-entry) provides a comprehensive and visual introduction to the tool, greatly reducing the learning curve and allowing users to effectively deploy the tool more quickly. The training also helps users understand how YASI, SPIn and SPIn Re-entry connect with the Effective Case Work Model.
