The FDR courseware is intended for agency-wide implementation and should be downloaded by a single contact from the member agency rather than by individual students. Managers of agency business units are permitted to download the courseware but should coordinate with their training and IT staff.

AAMVA has developed an Implementation Guide that explains how member agencies can use the various formats available to best fit their training strategies. Quick Start documents within the download packages will provide further details about each version.
