Congrats on the Ping training. First, you will probably do a few thngs like set the date, and do some things like that. Overall you will not spend a lot of time on the pump portion of the setup. They will probably have you set the cartridge level (if you get below a certain amount of insulin a warning goes off) which is a nice thing. I would suggest if your planning on using EZ manager that you also ask about setting the timeout display to 60 seconds. That will help prevent your pump from turning off while you try to download. They will also sync your pump up with the meter.
The pump itself is pretty simple but pay close attention to things like filling the cartridge (to avoid air bubbles) etc. You can watch the videos on the Animas site. There is a lot of things related to the pump as you know from reading the manual but just pay attention to the basics - filling the cannula, cartridge etc and the infusion sites.
Everything else (advanced features etc ) can come later.
You might feel lost the first few weeks which is normal - no lost in not knowing what to do but in how to do it. It all sounds so simple in the books but when your working with the infusion sets and trying to prime etc it does seem a bit much but it gets easier.
I found some great answers to questions on another site - http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/animasusers?xg_source=msg_wel_group
This group on this site is for Animus Pump users - I'm not sure if the like will take you to the exact area or if you have to cut and paste but look it over. YOu might have to go to http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/animasusers to start.
IF you run into any little thing that does not make sense this group is great especially later on.
Best of Luck
