    Gold/core members only: Includes free personal-use copy of PowerBuilder 12.5.2 (More Information)

    ISUG-TECH Core* and Gold members can receive a free copy of PowerBuilder as part of their member benefits. If you are not an ISUG-TECH Core or Gold Member, you should join first.

    You will save additional money off the cost of your course purchase that will in most cases cover the cost of the ISUG-TECH membership. (Core members save at least $200 on any purchase; Gold members save $200-$300.) Plus you will have the benefit of a full year's membership in ISUG-TECH where you can network with other PowerBuilder professionals.

    If you elect not to purchase the membership, you can utilize the 45-day free trial edition of PowerBuilder available from SAP. However, you will only have 45 days to complete your training in this event!

    Businesses hiring new staff can of course use their licensed versions of PowerBuilder for employees to take the course.

    *Note: Since core membership is no longer available for new members; the PowerBuilder benefit is only available to Gold members and existing Core members.

    PB Overview

    "… the course is A+++. I absolutely love it. I wish you would consider a book version …"

    "I enjoyed the Core Course very much. It was well laid out and the Quiz’s and Lab’s helped reinforce the material. I liked being able to go at my own pace and have the software remember where I left off. Being able to go back a review the material was also a nice benefit."
