In challenging economic times, now more than ever before, it is very important to have confidence in the reliability of FileMaker Pro databases. That’s why Database Pros is proud to say we have not increased our training prices in the past 10 years.

In an effort to assist additional FileMaker Pro users and customers, Osborne and Blackwell will be offering multi-student discounts for multiple students from the same organizations.  “We know organizations are carefully watching budgets,” said Blackwell, “and we want to do our part to help FileMaker customers afford the training that will help them to be successful with their database design and deployment.”

“We have included additional examples, points and concepts from our own experiences as trainers and developers to help students meet the challenges of reliability in hard times,” says John Mark Osborne. 

“We feel the additional material will assist students in grasping the core elements necessary to build and maintain reliably functioning FileMaker Pro databases. In addition, Steven Blackwell will focus on how FileMaker Server and FileMaker Security contribute to reliably functioning systems that avoid the adverse consequences of systems that fail,” Osborne also noted.
