Tutorials and Getting Started Guides

Visit Locum's YouTube Channel or view Getting Started guides to help you become more familiar with Locum products.

Getting Started Guides

Locum offers several Getting Started guides in pdf format which are available to download. These guides are intended to help Security Administrators who have the task of configuring Locum software on an MCP ClearPath system. Our Getting Started guides assume minimal technical knowledge on the part of the Security Administrator and, where appropriate, include references to other documentation for more detailed information and explanation. It is beneficial to download the software before consulting the Getting Started guides. Instructions on how to do so can be found in the ReadMe.pdf document on the release CD.
