FME Training

Get up to speed with FME, quicker than ever

Whether you’re new to FME or an experienced user looking to take your learning to the next level, our two-day instructor-led FME training courses are perfect. All our courses are delivered by FME Certified Trainers in a small classroom style training environment and where required, an instructor-led virtual course is also available.

For me this training was about demystifying FME. I’ve seen others use it and knew what a powerful tool it was but I’ve never quite found the time to teach myself.I think the balance of what we studied was spot on. It seemed to cover a fair amount of the FME functionality and I could see how it was applicable to the work I carry out.

Liz Bowen / Waka Kotahi

I have learned so many tips about FME Server and FME Desktop. Darren our trainer is so experienced in FME and he is always happy to share his tips and tricks to us along with practical examples. He answered all the questions we had and also very helpful if any users got stuck.

Phuong Tran / QV

There was a lot of information to go through and I think our trainer Kieran managed this well. The ability to use the online version of the manual and also getting the tips and tricks from the community was great. Highly recommended course.

Andrew Old / Ballance Agri-Nutrients

This course provided a terrific opportunity to learn more about the extensive tools of FME. Darren was an awesome trainer and the online (virtual) training layout (due to Covid restrictions) didn’t impact the quality of the course at all.

Chris Jones / Sunshine Coast Regional Council

The instructors knowledge and practical examples provided were excellent. Much better receiving formal instruction in a classroom environment rather than struggling with self-taught options online.

Helen Simpson / Napier City Council

Darren was a fantastic instructor who always made sure to take the time to assist everyone with the exercises and material whenever help was needed. His friendly and personable nature also made it easy to speak up and ask questions whenever necessary.
