Discussion created by Molly Connolly on Jul 23, 2012

Chicago - Thorsen Consulting, Inc. a leading consulting and training company is now offering an intensive, virtual training program for junior developers September 4-28, 2012.


The Apprentice Training Program is aimed at companies looking to train their junior talent. The program is also effective for career changers who are looking to learn the necessary skills to become a successful FileMaker consultant. During the 4 week program, students work with industry experts to create a study plan for short and long-term growth and then tailor their learning plan for immediate results within their organization.




"We've been looking to hire junior talent for years but didn't have the time to invest in training the new hires. We sent our first junior hire to the apprentice program and saw immediate results. Our new hire is quickly developing strong technical skills and more importantly he's able to pitch in (and bill hours) immediately because of the skills he acquired in this program."

Adam Aronson

President, FullCity Consulting

  • Customer Service
