COSTARS Training Center

​COSTARS offers state-of-the-art online training modules for COSTARS members and suppliers.  With the understanding that people learn differently, these trainings provide multiple, easy-to-use views for each COSTARS process.  Each training module will open in the Cue Card version.  To change your view, click on the drop down menu in the top right-hand corner to select the view you prefer.  

Expand each view's description below to learn more: 
​Cue Card:  Step-by-Step Instructions
This method offers a step-by-step guide with the option to illustrate a step by displaying a screen image when clicking on the underlined text.  You may easily print this guide to refer to as you perform the necessary steps.
Simulation:  Watch the Process
This method allows users to watch an example of the process as it is performed from beginning to end.  The simulation may run continuously (Select Simulation Tutorial) with an option to pause at a step or the user may choose to manually progress the simulation step-by-stey (Select Interactive Tutorial).
Guided Help:  Perform the Process with a Guide
This method allows users to perform the actual function while a step-by-step guide is displayed (with the option to pause) in the top corner of the computer screen as you perform the process.
