Base Certification Review Training


Course Length:

This is a three-day course.

Course Summary:

The Base Certification Review course is useful to refresh the minds of those who have undergone either Newtyne's Foundations and Data Step Techniques or the Fast-Track Base Programming training (or their equivalents) but do not use all of the certification topics on a day-to-day basis.  Also, when new software versions bring additional functions and features we ensure 'seasoned' programmers become fully aware of them.  Newtyne's experienced trainers will close gaps in knowledge and provide the best chance of attaining certifications.
