SAMS Training Opportunities

Working with the Social Assistance Management System (SAMS) can be challenging at the best of times. An introductory overview or refresher course is a great way to enhance skills and efficiency for yourself or your staff. 

OMSSA can work with you to develop, customize and deliver a SAMS training plan to suit the unique needs of your team. Training can be delivered through in-person or virtual formats, or a combination of both. 


Possible topics include: 

  • Intake process
  • Overpayments
  • Managing multiple ICs
  • Understanding and working with outcome plans
  • Understanding how legislation and SAMS work together
