    Hi @james555 when I got my new pump (Medtronic but not 780g) earlier this year my training was just with my DSN. If your training is with a Medtronic rep I would have thought it would vary in different areas as it would be your local rep and it depends what they're doing and how busy/backlogged they are. I'm surprised you were given a pump without any training beforehand or at least scheduled for the not-too-distant future :nailbiting:
