If you are responsible for training in your county Probation Department, please contact the CWS/CMS Customer Relations Team at email@example.com to obtain a generic password that is specific to your county. If you use CWS/CMS you can access the training portal from within the application. Once you are in CWS/CMS go to the "help" menu and select "Training Portal".
