Self-Study Training

Information Builders' Self Study program offers unique solutions that complement our instructor-led training (ILT). You can select from several delivery methods:

Self-Study Courses

For the self-study option, you are provided with a virtual environment, including in-session training manuals, for performing the tasks required for the course. The virtual environment is available for a set amount of hours, over a set amount of days, which differs per course, requiring you to complete the course before the environment expires. At the end of the training materials, you complete a comprehensive exercise of the course topics and submit it to Information Builders for verification and certification.
We are offering the following Self-Study Courses:

Report Painter 1 for WebFOCUS 8 Developer Studio
Reporting Essentials using App Studio - Part 1
Metadata Essentials using App Studio - Part 1
Embedding WebFOCUS BI in Custom Applications
