I recently took the coursework for FileMaker Certification, from Productive Computing University. Marc and Stu made this very approachable, easy to learn, and assisted greatly where pure memorization was needed. This is not my first rodeo at certification. I am now certified on 9 different versions of FileMaker. Yet, this time I wanted make sure I had it down pat, and I thought I might learn a few new things along the way. Wow! This coursework made the whole process much easier and less stress inducing. I took my time, watching the videos from my iPad while traveling overseas, and practicing on my Macbook Pro. When I returned to the States, I passed both tests in short order, and did well on them. These two guys work together very well as a team, and they made it very enjoyable, while inspiring confidence in me throughout the entire process. Go PCU! Jonn Howell DataExperience, Inc.

Thank you very much Marc and PCI team for the assistant for the FileMaker data migration tool as well as the free course! The course was very clear and concise. I appreciate being able to see how the commands are changed when options are selected and being able to study under the hood. Thank you for challenging us at the end to reverse engineer the advanced techniques it uses. Your tool and training are a blessing to the FileMaker Community - thank you!

Fast, easy, great explanations for each step of the data migration process. I appreciated that it included the step of going to the FileMaker site to download the Data Migration Tool. The instructor, Marc, has a voice that is pleasant to listen to. I feel like I, as a beginning-to-intermediate developer, can handle the migration easily after taking this course.

I am very pleased with the Cert Prep course. There is an enormous amount of information to go over and you all did a terrific job. I appreciated the effort, the humor, the tips for helping us remember. I am pleased to announce that I passed the exam and I am so grateful for this course. An area that I particularly needed help with was FileMaker Server and this course filled in a lot of holes in my knowledge.
