Free FileMaker Training Classes

We’re pleased to announce our Free FileMaker Training Series taught by platform expert, Matt Navarre. Matt is a Claris FileMaker Evangelist and Trainer at Direct Impact Solutions, and has been a certified FileMaker developer for over 30 years. Matt teaches several FileMaker training classes throughout the year, including classes for FileMaker users, beginners, intermediate and advanced developers, as well as the FileMaker Certification path, for developers seeking certification.

Our Free FileMaker Training Series is entirely free to attend, with each session lasting roughly 50 minutes. Each installment will focus on a different topic in FileMaker 19, including introductions to scripting, calculations, layout design, and more. Classes will be taught on Microsoft Teams, and will be available only as a live webinar; there will be no recordings distributed after each class.
