This training course builds upon the basic framework of workspace creation in FME Desktop. They are not so much topics that every user needs to know, but ones that will help all workspace authors who wish to take their FME skills to the next level.
The full course is made up of five main sections. These sections are:
- Advanced Parameter Use
- Performance Considerations
- Custom Transformers
- Advanced Reading and Writing
- Advanced Attribute Handling
The instructor may choose to cover as many of these sections as they feel are required, or possible in the time permitted. They may also cover the course content in a different order and will skip or add new content to better customize the course to your needs.
Therefore the length and content of the course may vary, particularly when delivered online.
This training material is intended for persons with some prior experience of using FME. The content assumes a basic familiarity with the concepts and practices of FME Desktop; at least to the extent covered by the FME Desktop Basic Training.
In particular it would be helpful to be familiar with:
- FME transformers and basic transformation techniques
- See Chapter 2 of the Basic Training
- Managing Readers, Writers and feature types in a workspace
- See Chapter 4 of the Basic Training
- Data filtering and attribute management techniques in FME Workbench
- See Chapter 5 of the Basic Training
