Title: FMVRS
Description: In this session, participants will learn how to use the Federal Motor Vehicle Registration System (FMVRS).  Ideal for novice users, this course will review the initial log in process, receiving and attaching license plates, vehicle record entry and maintenance while gaining firsthand experience in operating the system.

Title: Hands-on FAST Agency Administrator System Walk-through
Facilitators: Ron Stewart, Jeff Caldwell
Description: This hands-on session will walk FAST agency administrators through the use of the Federal Automotive Statistical Tool (FAST) system, covering management of an agency's reporting hierarchy, management of user accounts, management of reporting dates, and reviewing agency data submissions. Note: This session is specifically geared toward agency administrators and help desk POCs, and is not recommended for data-entry personnel.

Title: Hands-on FAST's Query Tool
Facilitators: Ron Stewart, Jeff Caldwell
Description: This hands-on session will focus on using FAST's ad hoc query tool to get data back out of FAST. We spend a significant amount of time reporting data; why not spend a few minutes learning how to retrieve that data? FAST's query tool provides a very flexible and powerful means for agency administrators to create custom queries. This session will cover the different types of queries available to users, filtering, sorting, and aggregating the data, as well as the different output formats the query tool supports. This session will also provide coverage of some of the new querying capabilities just being deployed within FAST. This session is specifically geared toward administrative ("Y" and "X" level) FAST users within their respective Federal agencies. Some familiarity with FAST and the data collected by the FAST system will be beneficial, but new FAST administrative users are also welcome.

Title: Hands-on Reviewing Your Agency's FAST Data Submission
Facilitators: Ron Stewart, Jeff Caldwell
Description: This hands-on session will focus on the use of several of FAST's reports and FAST's ad hoc query tool to identify and track down potential problems or suspect areas within your agency's FAST submission. We will use real examples, coupled with plenty of time to explore and ask questions, to help agency administrators be better prepared to find and resolve problems as well as answer questions about their agency submissions when they arise. This session is specifically geared toward administrative ("Y" and "X" level) FAST users within their respective Federal agencies. Some familiarity with FAST and the data being collected by the FAST system will be beneficial, but new FAST administrative users are also welcome.
