I really love teaching people how to use FileMaker Pro. It is so
exciting to see that light bulb go off in students' heads when they finally understand a FileMaker concept or learn
something they never thought FileMaker could accomplish.
If you are struggling with the cost, travel or time commitment for a quality FileMaker class, perhaps some former students of mine can convince you.

Quote about Video Training "I recently purchase the FileMaker Pro 9 Bundle authored by John Osborne. I’ve been using FileMaker for over 10 years and believe that I’m an accomplished FM programmer. As such, I was a bit put off at first by having to go through the “beginner” tutorial. I’m definitely not a beginner.
However, I must say that there hasn’t been a single lesson where I haven’t learned something new. And in many cases, it was very valuable stuff. Although I don’t like to admit it, there is a lot of functionality in FileMaker that I was unaware of or not effectively using. The tutorial is an excellent learning tool and I commend Mr. Osborne on a job well done."

If you can't afford
the time away from work or you require a very specific solution, I offer GoToMeeting training and consulting.
This allows you to customize the training to a specific area or have me assist you with a specific issue. I'll even send you FileMaker files demonstrating
any techniques we cover during the session.
If you aren't familiar with GoToMeeting, it is a service that allows two or more people to share and control their screens. GoToMeeting is the best
collaboration tools I have ever used!
