If the the devices are already deployed and activated, just assign an IT Policy to the devices that requires a password. Once the policy is applied on the device, the user is prompted to create a password. I can't believe your users would be lost doing this.
For new activations - it depends on how you do them. If you do all of the activations, just assign the policy to the device after activation and let the user create the password as above when you hand it to them. Or, set the default password as you wish during activation and create instructions on how to change a password that you can distribute with new devices. Those instructions would take 5-10 minutes for you to create.
If you have your users do the activation, assign the policy as you add the user. They will be prompted to create a password during activation.
