MapInfo Professional and MapBasic
 
 
 
  Overview

Training is invaluable.  It allows users to more quickly unlock the full potential of the tools they have.  All MapInfo users, from first-timers to old hands, benefit from training.

The MapInfo Professional Tutorial is a good introduction for beginners who are self-motivated.  Connect to the Tutorial via the Help menu in MapInfo Pro.

A second no-charge option is online training.  Online training was available previously at a cost of $40/lesson.  These lessons are free to all users effective immediately.    >> Link to PBS's (MapInfo Corp's) online training...

MapInfo Pro & MapBasic:  Custom Training by SGSI

In a custom training class, students cover the core features of MapInfo Pro but the agenda focuses on the specific MapInfo features most pertinent to your work.  Often we can integrate your company's map data into the training.  This is hands-on training, with one computer per participant. (Most common format.)

MapInfo Pro:  One-on-One “Personal Trainer” by SGSI

We can place someone next to you as your personal MapInfo trainer, consultant, and savant.  You contract for as much time as you need.  Our trainer is 100% dedicated to working with you:  answering questions, suggesting techniques, and/or demonstrating ways to create wonderful MapInfo Pro maps and map-based analysis. 

In contrast to custom training, personal training is normally one-on-one.  You are in total control of the content, pace, and choice of topics.  No training materials are provided by SGSI.
