San José State University is a FileMaker Authorized Trainer of the complete FileMaker Training Series (FTS) for campus faculty, staff, and students. (You won't see us on the public list of trainers because we don't offer our training outside of the campus community. Outside, complete FTS training costs from $1,500 to $2,000 per trainee.)
The FileMaker Training Series is the official training curriculum from FileMaker, Inc. It offers a series of 12 training modules that cover a comprehensive set of topics designed to help you master the essentials of FileMaker solution development. The FileMaker Training Series is targeted at intermediate to advanced FileMaker developers, but anyone who wants to create databases can increase their knowledge from these time-tested materials. This series is also a key resource for becoming a FileMaker Certified Developer.
The FTS modules are as follows:
With generous support from the Division of Student Affairs and the Center for Faculty Development (CFD), Eric Matthews, Systems Analyst, certified developer, and authorized trainer, will be training on each of these twelve modules on the following Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 9:30 to 11:30 AM, beginning March 15 with Using FileMaker Pro:
Staff and faculty may attend all twelve modules (for a "Certificate of Completion") or if they already have experience with any version of FileMaker Pro, they can attend any of the sessions separately.
From the Center for Faculty Development:
Attendance also requires registration through Center for Faculty Development: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 4-2303.
"Introduction to FileMaker", a FileMaker Pro Interactive Tutorial,
