Blending lecture presentations with hands-on lab exercises, these seminars emphasize a comprehensive, practical approach to building your application development skills. We bring you relevant, professional education that builds careers and businesses.

We customize for a specific application or interest, so training includes examples from your own development environment. Class size is limited to promote individualized instruction.

You eliminate the real costs of not training. And with our expert tutoring, you'll become more productive in all your programming and user interface design work.

Our training doesn't end when you leave the classroom. We provide free post-training support over the phone for students to reinforce their new skills.

Participant Testimonials
Comments from 2-Day Sessions:
"My compliments for a most professional presentation. The topic I found most useful was placing CyberTools, Inc. and its products in an industry perspective and your focus on software engineering vs. programming. This was an opportunity to think about how your vision fits with the state of computing, and I liked what I heard."

"I came to the class with absolutely no understanding of M Technology or CyberTools. I can honestly say that, 2 days later, I have a good basic understanding of CyberTools and picked up some M code. Good job!"

"I just wanted you to know that I really enjoyed the class! It was very useful to me as a programmer just cutting my teeth on CyberM. The validation stuff was most helpful as well as the cyupop stuff and the table pointer stuff. The multiple fields was really good too. I came back to work and started using things you showed us right away. As far as improving, I don't know how you could improve the 2-day course other than by making it longer."

"As always, I appreciated CyberTools' enthusiasm and presentation."


Comments from 4-Day Sessions:
The GUI topics were great. The demos were so interesting! What a well-designed approach! I enjoyed this time and am convinced that I got something substantial out of it."

"The entire seminar was very useful, something I can't often say for training programs I've participated in. Thanks very much. The presentation was well-delivered and to the point."

"I found that I learned things and integrated my general programming knowledge in ways I'm not sure I would have learned anywhere else...this is the best training experience I've ever had."
