Important Update – COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

As COVID-19 continues to impact the global community, Snow Software’s top priority is upholding our responsibilities to our employees, customers, and partners. That means continuing to deliver the highest quality of service and support while also focusing on the well-being of our workforce and extended community.

Our core training courses will be conducted virtually to ensure we can continue to enable our community.

Selected courses will be run as blended learning which is a combination of e-learning participation plus attendance to 2-3-hour remote interactive review session with an instructor. E-learning courses can be consumed at every participant’s own pace and the remote review sessions will be scheduled on a regular basis.

As the situation evolves, we will continue to assess our approach and alert you to any changes. Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions or concerns.
