Bromelkamp Academy

When Pearl or is first installed, your staff receives initial training.  As you learn the system, you become more independent and are ready for a more in-depth knowledge of what's possible; you also may want to implement and maintain new time-saving features all by yourself. You may want to modify the screens, queries, workflows, letters, and reports over time as your organization's needs change and grow.  Whether you have a single staff member ready for the next step of learning, or a brand new staff person who needs to learn from the ground up, the Bromelkamp Academy may be for you. 

Bromelkamp Academy is an in-person, group training held in various locations throughout the country.  Academy takes place over two and half days and offers a variety of learning tracks for finance, program, administrative and fundraising staff. Recent sites have included Seymour, IN, Cleveland, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Detroit, and Minneapolis/St. Paul.  Multiple organizations attend classes together, which allows for sharing of best practices as well as network-building for future information sharing.  It also provides us an opportunity to get to know you better.  Our goal is to be connected to you, so we can serve you better.  The Academy provides the benefits of onsite training with a lower cost than if our consultant trained you in your office.  (However, if you need to train multiple staff people, it is most cost-effective to host private training at your own office.)  


Bromelkamp Academy 2018 will be held July 18-20 in Grand Rapids, MI, at the Grand Rapids Community Foundation. We will be offering sessions for both Pearl and users. See below for registration dates; more information about classes, pricing and registration will be available in mid-April.
