f_Learning - eLearning for the IBM i


We are pleased to announce our eLearning courses!

Last year, after spending the last 30 years teaching IBM i courses face to face, we decided it was time to go virtual.
Little did we know that the world was going to change so dramatically & that virtual would be the new normal.

We also offer more in depth virtual training either via video link or through pre-recorded courses.
As an added bonus, some of our chargeable courses come complete with access to our training IBM i, so you can put theory into practice without worrying about the consequences.

However, we understand that there are some times when 'in person' is better (even if it is through a mask) so, yes, we are still giving our public & on-site courses, if you prefer.
