Overall the class was an eye opener. It revealed that the edi file is standardized enough that it is transportable from one industry to another (Healthcare to Retail, etc.). The class puts the information into 'human' aspects to enforce the fact that this is simple communication at it's best when it comes to electronic data. It also helps to eliinate' the fear / intimidation that you can get when starting to work with these types of files. In addition, it assures you that active involvement with the files will support better understanding as you gain experience in looking at the files.

Sherry Watanabe

L. Powell Acquisition Corp.
EDI Coordinator

I come from Supply Chain EDI. I can see the similarities between the structure of the documents and the vast differences in content and loops.

I would recommend this class for anyone thinking of transitioning from Supply to Healthcare!

Tim Gleason

I attended EDI Academy training after struggling through the early stages of our first EDI implementation. This training clarified the EDI implementation process and removed the smoke and mirrors aspect that I had been feeling. I came away from the training with the knowledge I will need to dramatically expand our use of EDI to improve our business processes.

EDI seemed something from Mars Planet but with this course, things got clearer and attainable. The course is appropriate and illustrations made through relevant exercises.

Emily Vance

Aurora Organic Dairy

I'd recommend to someone who has pretty much zero knowledge on EDI or has just begun. Given I onboarded a 3PL and learned much about EDI over the last 8 months I did not find as much value in this, at this time. But would have been nice to have attended at the start of my project.

Kristen Johnson

Michael covered a wide range of EDI transmissions from both ends of the supply chain giving the class a well-rounded understanding of how EDI is a vital component for varied industries. Allowing for plenty of QA time was a bonus; allowing participants to voice their individual concerns, which in most cases were universal concerns amongst the entire group. I've already referred back to the training documents in the days after returning to work.

After taking EDI courses 101 through 410, I can honestly say that the time spent was well worth it.

Jesseika Boyer

Amoena USA Corporation
Logistics & Operations Coordinator

I am happy I found EDI Academy. It was so difficult to find an EDI program where i could receive a certification for my current role in EDI. Their website is user friendly and very detailed. It has detailed information about the EDI courses offered. Michael is very knowledgeable & professional in EDI which helped a lot. The class material he provided was so easy to read and understand. Its broken down so simple that even someone who's never seen EDI would understand it ;). He made sure we understood the material before he moved on. He also advised that we can reach out to him anytime if we need help or have questions with anything after the class. I would highly recommend this course.

Dave Creighton

Application Process Support / EDI

The classes with the EDI Academy are always well paced, easily understood, and the documentation is always spot on. Although there are some documents that are presented that we do not use, it is always good to know about them, have some function knowledge of them, and understand what other EDI documents that they work with. I have attended many classes, and have had other coworkers attend them as well. Always top notch.

Timothy Upper

Ethnicraft USA

This course definitely helped me get my head around EDI in a short time frame. I started with no EDI experience, but now understand how it works and can communicate with our retailers much more effectively. I feel confident that as my company grows, I will also feel comfortable fully implementing EDI ourselves.

Andrea Wheeler

I have been working with EDI for a few years now, but still got "take away" information from every course.

Highly recommend this course if you want to learn about how the Healthcare EDI process works and how to implement it in your agency.

Yvonne Clevenger

T3 Micro Inc.
Sales Order Processing / EDI Manager

This class was extremely helpful. As our company does not really have anyone with in-depth knowledge in regard to EDI it was great to finally be able to understand the data I had been struggling to understand on my own for years. Even though we use a 3rd party EDI provider I realized it is important to still understand how to interpret the raw data being sent to us. I highly recommend this course for any company using EDI even if they are not mapping in house.

Amber Ayala

Best EDI Class to take. It was easy to catch on and maintain the knowledge. The atmosphere was great especially with a small class it makes it easy to get one on one help.
