Property Accountability Basic Module Course

Property Accountability Basic Module Course

The Property Accountability (PA) Basic Module Course is a high-level, 101-style, in person training designed to provide students with an introductory understanding of the PA module and it's fundamental capabilities.  The curriculum will highlight the core functionality of all major processes contained within the PA module as well as its user interface and navigational basics. If you are considering incorporating DPAS into your business model and would benefit from learning how the application works in more detail; or perhaps you are in the process of implementing DPAS but require more information to inform your decisions on establishing internal structure or completing the requisite conversion spreadsheets; or maybe, as a new or current user of DPAS, you would like to attend an instructor-led course to supplement what is available via our eLearning platform--this course is for you!


All of our Basic Module Courses do include student access to our Sandbox Training Environment, so that all in attendance can benefit from the opportunity to "click around" in the application and practice the skills covered throughout the class.




  1. Who should attend a Basic Module Course?
    • The Basic Module Course is designed for several audiences:
      • Those who are considering incorporating DPAS into their business model, and have had a demonstration of DPAS, but would benefit from learning how the application works in more detail.
      • Those who are preparing to implement DPAS and need additional details to make informed decisions on establishing internal structure and completing the necessary conversion spreadsheets.
      • New or current DPAS users who are unable to meet our 5-person minimum requirement.
      • New or current DPAS users who would like to attend an instructor-led course as an add-on to our independent eLearning.
  2. What is included in a Basic Module Course?
    • 101-type instruction in all major module processes.
    • Hands-on practice using our Sandbox Training Environment.
    • Q&A with one of our knowledgeable Technical Trainers.
  3. What you need to know prior to registering for a Basic Module Course?
    • Prior DPAS training is not required to attend, but it is recommended that registrants peruse the DPAS Support website to familiarize themselves with DPAS in general.  For example, the "System Solutions" dropdown menu includes DPAS Overview videos for each of the major modules.
