There's a Good Reason We're the Best-Known Training Source
We have trained literally thousands of people how to use Pick/D3
Today we provide remote training at your time and convenience.
This allows us to customize the material to your actual data and programs.
What used to take five days in the classroom can now be condensed into ten 1-hour sessions.

With D3 Fundamentals knowledge, we now can address the incredibly powerful PICK/BASIC programming language over 10 1-hour sessions.
Our primary goal of this course is to get you comfortable with the process of reading and updating existing programs.
Following the model laid out in "Pick/BASIC: A Programmer's Guide" by Jonathan E. Sisk, we can take a novice programmer through the bulk of the most-used instructions, using practical examples and offering important insights into subtle issues like technique along the way.
We then take that new knowledge and put it to use by applying it to your actual client code, in a safe way of course. We often have students bring a pending programming task to class where we work on it together.
This particular part of our training is more fluid than fundamentals, since the language has so many specific areas one could focus on. So we tailor it to the exact needs of the student.
