At Bakken Software we focus on helping you learn. All of our classes are hands-on. We provide individual attention and provide exercises proven to reinforce the subjects covered. Material is presented in a step by step manner allowing you to build on the previously learned subject matter. We offer the ability to 'retake' a class as a refresher course for up to 1 year following the original class, at no additional cost. Note: Does NOT apply to our online webinars.
We are currently offering the following webinars: Introduction to the Pick Database Environment Pick or MultiValue Database Retrieval Language Pick Basic Programming
Please see our current schedule for dates and pricing.
So what will your class be like? All of our training is hands on. Yes, that includes our online classes. We begin each session with a short lecture covering a particular topic. Then our students apply the covered material. Once our instructor is comfortable that all of the students have a good understanding of the material, another topic is covered. We understand that for most adults a classroom environment is not the norm. We specialize in helping adults enhance their skill sets and strive to make them comfortable while doing so. Step by step, one building block at a time.
A typical day includes lecture material, hands on application of the material, question and answer sessions and discussion as to how the presented material can be applied by the student to their companies needs. We also stress the importance of documentation, following company standards, and user friendly applications. And every once in a while a game or two.
Would you believe, we have even been asked by some of our students to give a final exam? "Hit me with your best shot, make it as challenging as possible!" And we do!
While all of our classes loosely follow a standard syllabus, we do leave room to accommodate individual questions, concerns, and applications.
Our newly scheduled online classes will follow the same format, with the exception that the classes will be held for only 4 hours per day. This will allow our clients who are unable to leave the office a way to add to their knowledge base, while still participating in their active work day. These online webinars will be conducted from 9 to 1 p.m. Central Standard Time. Our servers will be available all day, if students want to work on individual exercises (or just practice what they've learned) later into the evening if they choose to do so.
