This training course provides a framework for a basic understanding of FME. We find users come to master one function but go home with many new FME uses.
The training will introduce basic concepts and terminology, help students become efficient users of FME, and direct you to resources to help apply the product to your own needs.
The full course is made up of five sections. These sections are:
- Data Translation Basics
- Data Transformation
- Workspace Design
- Practical Transformer Use
- Best Practice
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 customize the course to your needs.
Therefore the length and content of the course may vary, particularly when delivered online.
Safe Software offers training in various lengths, but usually either two days or five days. Both courses cover the same content. The two-day course consists of fewer, but longer, days and is more intense. The five-day course consists of more, but shorter, days and allows a little more time to cover the content from a beginner's perspective.
About the Manual
The FME Desktop training manual not only forms the basis for FME Desktop training – in-person or online – but is also useful reference material for future work you may undertake with FME. It is updated for each major release of FME.
All screenshots in these materials were taken using FME on Windows Server 2016. The fonts used (especially in screenshots of the log window) may be resized or otherwise changed for improved legibility.
