Congratulations and thank you for joining Profile!
Our aim is to get you up and running as quickly as possible.
The first step is to add your first training centre. It's a breeze, here's how to do it...
Login to Profile with your credentials and you'll see the 'Course Manager' tab across the top of the screen, click it.
Click the 'add new training centre' button located below the tabs - it's on the right side.
You'll now be presented with a nice popup window.
We need some basic information to ensure that candidates get the information they need.
Start by populating the training centre name. For example, "Profile Marine Academy".
Enter your main phone number.
Profile will automatically insert the country code at the beginning of the number and strip any zeros (where necessary) so don't worry about that - just enter it as you normally would.
Team tip: You can check the telephone number after the training centre has been created by clicking the 'edit' button.
Now it's time to enter your training centre address.
Start typing the address in the box and we'll predict the full address.
Once you see the correct address, simply click the right one from the dropdown options displayed.
OPTIONAL Step 6)
We're the first ones to admit that computers are not always right.
If you're not happy with the address that's been populated, you can override it via the 'address to display' box.
Team tip: This is the exact address displayed to candidates, we suggest leaving it alone where possible.
It's your chance to shine. Use the 'about' box to tell candidates about your training centre.
This is a good place to describe key facilities or simply talk about things that make you stand out from the crowd.
Team tip: If you don't see the 'about' box, try scrolling down to bring it into view.
Enter your website address. For example 'www.useprofile.com'.
Click the 'save changes' button.
That's it, your training centre has now been added to Profile.
We're now ready to add courses (this was the hardest part, the courses take a minute to add!).
