Core Crystals Reports Training

Starting at $1,750 + tx

What to Expect

Our training is hands-on and engaging. You will have Crystal Reports up and running on your own computer throughout the training. The instructor will demonstrate a concept or function, then invite you to try it for yourself. You will be given several in-class assignments and also be provided with a workbook that contains additional exercises that you can use to improve your skills. Feel free to ask questions as you go in this small-group setting!

Thanks again for the training, Ali. it might be the single most useful training I've completed at work!

You choose what would be the best use of your time. Most students find it most valuable to use this time for supervised practice, where you come up with a report you need to make and we build it together. Other students may wish to move ahead to more advanced topics.
