The Theme Designer Training Package tracking will be supported with your private portal (Confluence space) on our servers, which includes up to three user accounts. Your portal will be maintained for one year after completion of last service package or service punchcard. User accounts inactive for six months will be automatically disabled (simply contact us to reactivate).
