Become a master of APPEL and the Single Form offline

Course Description

This e-learning course provides a complete presentation of the offline Single Form, in order to improve the participants’ capacity in dealing with its technicalities and to increase confidence in dealing with this format. It is also highlighted how to integrate the offline application with APPEL.
Please note that in November 2018, a new browser-based application of the Single Form has been released, with the objective of substituting completely the PDF-based application. The two applications will run simultaneously until April 2019 (approximately), after this date the new application has to be used. We strongly recommend getting familiar with it, as it brings many interesting improvements.
