FileMaker Certification Course News

June 16, 2021

Are you considering taking the FileMaker Certification exam?

We understand that the Developer Essentials for Claris FileMaker Exam can be difficult to study for and a challenge to pass. Even if you are a seasoned developer working with FileMaker for years, you still may find that there are unseen areas in your knowledge because you may not come across every aspect of the platform on a regular basis. That’s why we originally created the FileMaker Certification Preparation course. This course allows you to see all the different aspects and all the different areas covered by the test as you prepare for the exam.

You'll be happy to know that we continue to improve our course offerings with new courses, updated lessons, and of course the all-in-one Productive Computing University Bundle to further your knowledge, prepare, and advance your career. And when it comes to the FileMaker Certification exam, the keyword here is "prepare".

Here is a look at our recent updates to the FileMaker Certification Preparation course, including the new FileMaker Certification Sample Questions course, and how these can help you in your FileMaker Certification journey.


Practice for the exam with the new FileMaker Certification Sample Questions course! 

As you venture further into your FileMaker Certification journey, we’re thrilled to announce the new FileMaker Certification Sample Questions course.

We’ve designed the course to be at a similar difficulty level to the official FileMaker exam. With this course, you’ll get access to 200 sample questions where you work through a series of “quizzes” representing each area of the exam. Take these quizzes as many times as you want and you’ll be presented with a percentage score each time. Answers along with associated links to learn more about each question are also provided.

Please note that we don’t have copies of the actual exam questions, but we do our best to present these questions in a similar style and manner that you would typically see on a FileMaker Certification Exam.

Enrolling in the FileMaker Certification Sample Questions course can help boost your confidence and study smarter!

FileMaker Certification Preparation course has been updated for FileMaker 19! 

We’ve updated the FileMaker Certification Preparation course for FileMaker 19, clarifying lessons so you feel prepared for the new FileMaker exam. This exam preparation course is divided into chapters that concisely cover all sections of the exam, including database schema, securing and deploying FileMaker systems, data integration, and more.

Signing up for the FileMaker Certification Preparation course can provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to properly and productively study for the exam and increase your chances of passing.

Experienced developers might study for 20 - 40 hours to pass the FileMaker certification exam. However, passing the test isn’t about putting in the hours: it’s about studying with the right tools under your belt.
