FileMaker UK today announced the FileMaker Training Series, self-paced tuition offering the basic knowledge required to get the most from FileMaker 9.

The tuition courses are designed for intermediate to advanced FileMaker developers, but can benefit anyone creating FileMaker databases. The tuition is also being made available as a key resource for developers looking to take the FileMaker 9 Certified Developer exam, which is planned for February 2008.

“The FileMaker Training Series is designed to benefit users with varied skill sets, from anyone needing a solid grounding in FileMaker development principles to expert developers who want to fill in gaps in their knowledge,” said Ryan Rosenberg, vice-president marketing and services, FileMaker.

The series consists of 12 modules with detailed, step-by-step instructions on key FileMaker development topics. The materials include a 500-page, full-colour manual plus a CD with demo files, exercises and videos to help guide users through the content. Modules in the series cover a wide range of information, from introductory concepts such as working with fields and layouts to more advanced techniques such as connectivity and web publishing.

The FileMaker Training Series can also be taken as a course offered by any one of the FileMaker Authorised Trainers nationwide.

The FileMaker Training Series is available in the UK for £65.
