Custom and On-Site Classes
In addition to providing standardized Pervasive Software classes in our
training center, Goldstar Software's Certified Pervasive Trainer can also work with you to create a customized,
on-site training session in your own office. This is the most economical option if you have many people interested
in training, and allows us to target your specific needs directly, whether they be related to Btrieve 6.15, Pervasive.SQL
7, or Pervasive.SQL 2000, Pervasive.SQL V8, Pervasive PSQL v9, Pervasive PSQL Summit v10, Pervasive PSQL v11, Actian PSQL v12, or Actian Zen v13.
Any class can be scheduled as an on-site class, including:
Or, work with us to design your own custom curriculum by picking the topics which your company needs the most,
or even ad hoc, one-on-one training!
Any of the above information is fair game for a custom class, but the issues
and problems relating to database engine upgrades, customer support issues, and other "non-class" information
can also be incorporated. We have done many classes for software development companies to bring their technical
support department up to speed, and then spend a few hours at the end with the developers in a "round-table"
discussion over issues and problems they have seen. After one such class, one company even decided to hold off
on their impending software release for another few weeks to address some issues which we identified -- and their
product was much easier to roll out and required less technical support because of it!
Why work with Goldstar Software? Doesn't Actian know this material the best?
The answer is simple: The best trainers have a combination of training
experience and real-world experience! Someone who can relate facts from the materials and provide a good understanding
of the information is only providing half the solution. No set of materials will ever answer every question you
have about a subject matter. Often, it is information which is NOT presented therein which can be just as important.
Every class we provide answers to real questions for the students -- relevant to their own experiences. In addition,
since we are in the field, doing live upgrades at sites across the country, we know the pitfalls which you need
to watch out for -- including valuable information about bugs, problems, and other "gotchas" in the ever-changing
world of networking and applications.
It's the experience that makes the difference!
We only use Btrieve 6.15 -- and Pervasive doesn't support it any more. What can we do?
Here is one more option to consider:
Btrieve Service and Support - The Original! (Click for details)
This original class was created by Goldstar Software and provided to Pervasive
Software as the basis for their own Service and Support class. As such, we still have the rights to provide this
class, either on-site or in our training center. This session focuses mainly on Btrieve 6.15 (although references
to Pervasive.SQL 7 are included), and presents the information in a more logical order than the Pervasive session.
This class targets the network and system support personnel who must install and maintain Btrieve-based applications
This class is a perfect option for on-site classes for software developers
and VARs for applications still running Btrieve 6.15. Pricing for on-site classes varies based on the number of
students and the location. Call for more details.
