Central Budget Management System (CBMS) Training

CBMS (Redeveloped) Training

The “CBMS Overview” eLearning module is a prerequisite for all users (both new and existing). Once this overview is successfully completed, the other eLearning courses will become available.

Existing CBMS (Legacy) users are required to undertake the eLearning module/s applicable to their CBMS user role, e.g. if a user’s role requires them use the Cash Management module, they must successfully complete the Cash Management Overview eLearning module.

New users will also have to complete relevant Instructor-Led Training (ILT) courses. ILT will provide new users with broader system knowledge and allow more time to explore the system and ask questions.

Please refer to Fact Sheet 02 – Training for the Redeveloped CBMS


eLearning courses will be available through the redeveloped CBMS from 5 June 2017.

When eLearning opens, users will be able to logon to CBMS to access eLearning courses. All eLearning courses require a pass mark of 80 per cent before broader access to the system is provided.

eLearning courses can be completed at your convenience, but must be completed (and the assessment passed) prior to attending the ILT course.

The eLearning modules contain a competency based assessment component and can be attempted as many times as required, to gain the competency. The eLearning courses are:

  • CBMS Overview – mandatory for all users
  • Cash Management
  • Monthly Actuals
  • Annual Actuals
  • Monthly Profiles
  • Annual Estimates

Instructor Led Training

Instructor Led Training courses commence 13 June 2017.

Training courses for each CBMS module/component are scheduled for just in time training, 6-8 weeks prior to the go live date of the module/component. Users may nominate for training by selecting the appropriate course from the CBMS Training Calendar below.

Once prerequisite eLearning courses have been completed, users can attend the relevant ILT course(s):

  • Annual Actuals
  • Annual Estimates Data Entry
  • Cash Management
  • Monthly Actuals
  • Monthly Estimates
  • User Defined Reporting
  • Analysis for Excel (Finance and Treasury only)
  • Decision Making (Finance and Treasury only)

Current users will also be able to attend instructor-led training; however, preference will be given to new users if there are scheduling constraints.
