Renaissance Clinics

If you need to ask the Training department about something specific, however, the Renaissance Clinics allow you to book time with one of our Training team in a 121 environment. The Clinics are fantastic for asking advice on the products, for advancing your implementation, for analysing your data with some support or just figuring out your next steps after having completed the sessions.

Each clinic session can be booked for 15 mins at any time of the day, simply click here to book.

Access to these is unlimited too, so keep the link and book as often as you need.

This will complete your onboarding, but remember to save this page and keep access to the session booking links, because access to the initial sessions is unlimited for you or any new staff for the first 12 months of your Nearpod use.
