SiteSearch Slide Presentations

This page provides links to the PowerPoint slide presentations used during formal classroom training for SiteSearch. They are made available to you here as support and reference for SiteSearch courses that you may have already taken or to help you prepare for courses that you are planning to attend. Since the slide presentations do not include an audio portion, they are not currently a replacement for formal classroom training. Full classroom training includes lecture, instructor-led activities, and group exercises to clarify concepts, procedures, and other information introduced on the slides.
