Online Training for Time and Talents
What is Time and Talents?
Time and Talents is a piece of global software used in all corners of the world, with timebanks as far afield as the United States, New Zealand and the Philippines. It is a piece of software that is used to organise, run and monitor a time bank. Its primary function is to record exchanges of hours between members, be they individual or corporate. Members are able to setup, do and record their own exchanges so that bigger timebanks do not have a bottleneck on the broker having to organise everything. This leaves them free to do the rest of the duties involved in running their time bank.
Time and Talents is the latest software offered in conjunction with Timebanking UK. We are the UK representatives for the software and have our own developer involved with the ongoing development. We are also involved in training for the software within the United Kingdom.
If you start using â€śTime and Talentsâ€ť and have registered this with our head office, we have continuous online group training course set up. This training is split into 2 sessions for you to choose â€“ free as part of your membership package with TBUK. Each of these webinars will run for approx. 90 minutes.
