    General Information

    1. How is the course presented?
      The courses are presented over the internet using a browser and Adobe Flash. The student will follow the course presenter using previously recorded course materal, with the ability to pause, stop/resume later, go back to a previously viewed section, change topics, etc.
    2. Who are the courses aimed at?
      The courses are primarily aimed at professional software developers who are not familiar with PowerBuilder, as well as second year Technical College IT students (and above).
    3. What do the courses include?
      The courses include everything you'll need to rapidly develop a comprehensive PowerBuilder skill set. You'll have access for twelve months to the eLearnIT online delivery mechanism developed specifically for this course, as well as the ISUG-TECH/eLearnIT support facilities where you can interact with fellow students as well as the teacher of the course.
    4. What will I learn by the end of the courses?
      Upon completion of the core course, you will be capable of building your own PowerBuilder workgroup scale application from scratch or performing maintenance tasks on an enterprise scale application. Upon completion of the Advanced courses, you'll be well on your way to PowerBuilder mastery!
    5. What version of PowerBuilder are the courses based on?
      The core course was originally designed and written using version 11.5x and subsequently updated for 12.0 and 12.5; the advanced courses were developer on 12.5, but in all cases most of the content is valid for all current versions. A few controls, properties and methods were added in newer versions. Also the arrangement of the properties on a few control property sheets was changed. The impact of these changes on the course content is negligible. All core concepts technologies and techniques presented are version independent.
    6. What if I run into a problem during lab? Where do I get help?
      Use the convenient like within the course place to send an email to the course instructor.  Questions are usually answered within a few hours.
    7. What if I have a question during the presentations? Where can I get an answer?
      All questions can be posted in the ISUG-TECH learner forum.

    2. What version of PowerBuilder do I need to do the lab exercises?
      You can perform the lab application exercises (LATTE) with any current version of PowerBuilder ( >=8), since you will build the application from the ground up. However, solutions are only provided for version 11.5. ISUG members have access to a personal-use copy of PB 12.5 that you can use to do the labs. The Mini-Lab exercises at the end of most topics require a minimum of version 11.5.
    3. What if we use an earlier version of PowerBuilder at work?
      No problem. Course knowledge and skills are version neutral. You will be able to directly apply the knowledge and skills that you acquire in this course to any current version of PowerBuilder.
