“A year after attending the week long FileMaker Pro series training, we had a solution that was working pretty well. We had, however, run into a few roadblocks, and problems that we couldn’t quite solve. We contacted Cris and he came to our site and did some training for us working on our database. The training was so worth the time and money. The opportunity to work on our database with the actual problems that we were facing was so much more beneficial then if we had worked on a training database. We walked away from the training feeling much more knowledgeable about FileMaker Pro and feeling very confident to go on to the next steps to make our databases effective.We would recommend this type of training to anyone that is using FileMaker Pro to develop real time, web based databases. Cris is an excellent, knowledgeable instructor. He made this training fun and interesting. We will be contacting him again for his guidance and expertise.- Patty and Ralph- U.S. Geological Survey” As a pretty basic level user of computers and databases, I was a bit skeptical when I found out the File Maker class I would be attending was to last five days. I was sure that had to be overkill. Boy was I wrong! I had underestimated what a useful tool File Maker is. Also, the delivery of the information was great. Cris keeps the class involved with excersises, questions and just the right amount of humor. I use a File Maker database to store and retrieve information about aircraft, and work in an environment that requires me to have that information quickly. File Maker sure fits that bill. Thanks again, Cris for a great class. - Greg Daugherty Aircraft Maintenance Controller United AirlinesHello. I just wanted you to know that we have Cris Ippolite at our site for on-site basic & technical training for FileMaker in Oct 2007. While we gave him a very difficult training scenario – large number of students, students w/o DB experience, etc – Cris did a fine job for us and we are looking forward to working with him again in the future – for either app development and/or additional training.-Edward Feater-

“I really enjoyed participating in your class. It was extremely beneficial. You are an excellent instructor. FileMarker Pro 10 is an amazing database software program. It is the answer to our needs. I know that we will be able to create exactly what we are looking for. Thanks again!”-Sandy Miller Goldring, Hertz & Lichtenstein, LLP“In December I attended the Cris’ classes “Master the essentials of FileMaker 9.” Wow! I bought my first FileMaker license over 2 years ago. I am not a full time professional developer. I’m founder and CEO of my own 11 person consulting company. Because of the class and Cris’ teaching style, the text book and the sample files and solutions provided — I’m further along in finishing my solution in just a few weeks than I was during 2 years of floundering around in the wilderness. I may not be ready for DevCon yet, but I’m now ready to develop the solution my company needs.Thanks, Cris.Christopher W. Tipper – President Palatine Office- Hunter Benefits.comWe’re delighted to hear about your success in working with FileMaker Pro and Cris Ippolite. You are most certainly working with one of the most distinguished FileMaker developers in the world.Kevin Mallon- FileMaker, Inc“Cris, thanks again for a great week of classes. I had a pretty good time, got out of the office, and learned a few tricks along the way. Most importantly, I think a number of people in our work group have a much more positive feeling about FM and how they can improve their skills. I myself was inspired to come back and clean up this custom calc that I had played with over the past year or so.”William E Keene, PhD MPH -Senior EpidemiologistAcute & Communicable Disease Prevention Oregon Public Health Services

“Anyone could stand in front of a group and simply read the course lessons to us. But Cris did a great job of going off the material whenever he found it more beneficial for the group to tackle one of our real life issues/challenges.”

Kevin Kleinhenz- Academy of Motions Pictures Arts and Sciences
