Email if you are interested in FTS training.

IT Solutions offers a three-day FileMaker Training Series for intermediate FileMaker developers who are ready to take their solutions to the next level. Students should already have some exposure to FileMaker, but extensive development experience is not required.

We have chosen a number of great lessons from the official FileMaker Inc. training curriculum. Each lesson explores a variety of topics designed by our Trainers just for this course!

You will learn about:

  • The different kinds of fields and field options available
  • All aspects of interface design including the many tools available for designing a rich user interface
  • Summary reports to help convert raw data into meaningful information
  • Relational databases and how to translate planning into a FileMaker solution
  • The benefits of FileMaker 15 including the NEW scripting workspace
  • Security awareness
  • What’s new in FileMaker Server 15
  • And much more!

At the end of the training you will have the knowledge, tools and skillset to add advanced features to an existing solution as well as a deeper understanding of how to think “like a developer” in order to increase the return on your software investment.

This hands-on training is the only live class in the area taught by FileMaker Trainers with 20+ years of industry expertise.
