You have been charged with the job of installing and maintaining Ripple Effects behavior training programs; now what?

You may have extensive technical training; you may have very little. You may be a full-time technologist; you may be a part-time “draftee.” Either way, our Technology Guide  will walk you through the steps and help you problem-solve. Parts of the guide are only for professional technologists. Other parts make it possible for program people to get Ripple Effects up and running their own.

Regardless of your expertise or background, you probably have more responsibilities than you have time to fulfill them. Thus, efficiency is really important. Please let us know if there are issues we have not covered in the guide, or where explanations are unclear. Ripple Effects is committed to doing whatever is necessary to make our programs work for you. If you run into a problem that is not included here, or if the suggested solution is not working for you, please contact us immediately so we can help you solve it effectively. The more information you have about the technical details of your system, the faster we’ll be able to help solve the problem. We truly appreciate your efforts to get Ripple Effects up and running for your kids, teens, and staff. For more personalized problem-solving, please call, toll-free: 888.259.6618 (8:00am-5pm PST) or email
