Path to Certification

Perfect for anyone seeking certification as a FileMaker developer. More than a simple training course, this program clearly illuminates the path to FileMaker certification.

The course provides a comprehensive review of the FTS materials and prepares attendees to pass the FileMaker certification exam. If you do not pass the exam after taking this course, you can return to take the course again, free of charge. That’s right, we’re offering a ‘do over.’

Preparation

Before attending our course we strongly recommend that you take the FileMaker certification exam.  That’s right, take the exam BEFORE the course!  The best way to find out where you have gaps in your FileMaker knowledge is to take the test.  Once you’ve identified where you need to improve come to the class and we’ll make sure you’re prepared to pass it.  We recommend that you take it the week before class to make sure it’s fresh in your mind.

After you take the test and before you come to class we’ll conduct a one-on-one meeting to discuss how the test went and identify the areas we should focus on during class.

Please come prepared with a copy of FileMaker Pro Advanced loaded on your laptop. (If you need a copy of FileMaker Pro Advanced, or a computer workstation, please let us know. There will be an extra charge for the workstation, no extra charge for the temporary FileMaker software.)

Immersion

This portion of the program is scheduled over a four-day period. The first three of which center around in-depth study using the FTS manual. The fourth day is about ensuring your preparation for the FileMaker exam. We will quiz you, review areas of uncertainty  and share test taking strategies.

You can expect personalized attention during the immersion experience. We believe that small class sizes provide the best learning environment. It allows attendees to interact and learn from one another while maintaining time for individual attention.

Follow-up

We will schedule a meeting to debrief within 2 weeks of the course. You can use this time to polish up on a specific topic, be quizzed by the trainer, or talk about your database. In addition, your FileMaker trainer will be available for Q&A via e-mail.

If  you don’t pass the certification exam, let us know and we’ll immediately schedule you for the next appropriate training course. We want you to be our next success story.

Note: the class is cancelled if there are not enough registered students two-weeks prior to the date of the class. If you are registering within two weeks of the class, please call us and confirm that the class has not been cancelled.
