Apprentice Program for dBASE Plus 2.8 for you and a colleague

By dBaseGeoffrey | Newsroom

Here at dBase, LLC we realize that many dBASE solutions have been for the most part owned and operated by just a handful of talented individuals. There are times when the person responsible for maintaining the dBASE application is not available. And it always seems to be at those times, when their support is needed most.

That is why for the rest of this calendar year, we are extending our training offer to include a second individual. By naming a second individual, you will both be able to attend not one, but two of our training seminars. Our goal is to help you expand your company’s dBASE expertise and protect your investment in your dBASE applications that you depend on every day.

For any purchase of dBASE PLUS 2.8, Full or Upgrade made between November 1st 2012, and December 31st 2012, we will include two seats in our successful online training seminar “Working with dBASE”. Additionally, we will include two seats to our newly introduced training seminar “Migrating your dBASE programs to dBASE PLUS 2.8”. With each purchase, you will receive two invitations to each of these classes.

The new apprentice program just makes good business sense,” said Mike Rozlog, CEO of dBase. “I think this is a great way to get more people involved with dBASE and its great technology and at no additional cost. In addition, this will help many small businesses and individuals have the needed technology backup ready to go when the need arises.

This is a great opportunity to show one of your colleagues how to utilize dBASE in order to create powerful applications that can help your business thrive in today’s difficult economy.

There will be two different date options to take the “Working with dBASE” seminar. Each date will offer two different time options to better accommodate worldwide participation.

  • The first date is set for December 6th with the seminar from 1:00 pm EST to 3:00 pm EST (GMT -5) or later that same day from 10:00 pm to 12:00 am EST (GMT -5).
  • The second date is set for January 8th from 1:00 pm EST to 3:00 pm EST (GMT -5) or later that same day from 10:00 pm to 12:00 am EST (GMT -5). All four seminars will be presented in English.

There will be a single date in January 2013 with two different time options to take the “Migrating your dBASE programs to dBASE Plus 2.8“.

  • The first seminar is set for January 10th from 1:00 pm EST to 3:00 pm EST (GMT -5) or later that same day from 10:00 pm to 12:00 am EST (GMT -5). Both seminars will be presented in English.
