The First Few Weeks (Outcomes)
The first task you will be working on is a self paced training program that includes videos and documentation that will provide you with a fundamental knowledge of the Odoo software. We divide this training program up into different apps and you will be expected to complete the lessons for 1-2 applications each week.
You will be responsible for not only reviewing the materials provided for each app, but also for practicing the skills and workflows that you learn in a test database.
Once you're comfortable with the materials for each application, you will be given a quiz that will test your knowledge and understanding of the application you've been studying.
Once we're all in agreement that you have a good handle on how Odoo functions and specifically the accounting functionality, you will transition to assisting and consulting both internally and with clients on accounting trainings, best practices, implementations, period-close procedures, accounting health-checks, etc.
