Becoming Proficient in Tidemark

Tidemark trainings & open labs are offered based on the budgeting cycle that we are gearing up for.

      - Budget Plan trainings are offered in March.

      - Booked Budget trainings are offered in May-June.

      - Open Labs are available during all Open Cycles.

Registration for trainings are made via STARS.   These courses allow attendees to learn how to develop the budgets for their budget unit or department.  This level of training is open to Budget Officers and their designated analysts only. Please contact your Budget Officer to confirm before enrolling.
