The self study training is for individuals that cannot attend the 5-day SMS/800
Web Based Access (WBA) Database class. A person can complete a self study training
class in preparation for the SMS/800 Certification Exam. After the required deposit
and Service Establishment request are submitted, the individual will be granted
access to the Tutorial WBA. The Tutorial WBA is a copy of the Production WBA but
is used exclusively for training.
Once the individual has logged into the Tutorial WBA, the user can practice using
all of the screens and features of SMS/800. They can also download the SMS/800 User
Guide from the Help menu in the Tutorial WBA for reference at any time. All SMS/800
features available to Responsible Organizations (Resp Orgs) are described in the
SMS/800 User Guide. The WBA Student Guide is also available for purchase in three
(3) different formats for a set fee. To purchase a CD-ROM or Portable Document Format
(PDF) copy of the WBA Student Guide, the fee is $60.00. To purchase a Printed copy
of the WBA Student Guide, the fee is $170.00. If you are interested in purchasing
this guide, please contact the SMS/800 Trainers at the SMS/800 Help Desk at 888-SMS-3300,
Option 1. The SMS/800 Trainers will send you an invoice for the WBA Student Guide.
The WBA Student Guide will then be delivered by FedEx or e-mailed upon receiving
the payment. This is the same guide used in the classroom training.
The WBA Student Guide contains written questions and hands-on exercises to aid in
learning the SMS/800 features. Help in understanding SMS/800 functionality and processes
is also available anytime by calling the SMS/800 Help Desk. In addition, there are
several “How-To” videos for Responsible Organizations (Resp Orgs) covering a variety
of topics for SMS/800. SMS/800 videos are available to Resp Orgs after logging into
the SMS/800 Website.
