Lasso Training

In addition to basic user training when we implement new systems, Creative Computing offers hands-on FileMaker and Lasso training to individuals and groups, online Lasso classes and free Lasso webinars.

Free Webinars  On your desk, via WebEx!

We offer free webinars to give back to the Lasso community.  All you need to participate is a computer with a broadband connection. The webinars are generally less than one hour long.  ADDED BONUS: Attendees of the live presentations receive the demo files.

To get the most out of our webinars previous experience building websites is strongly recommended; previous Lasso experience is helpful but not required.

Webinars are on hiatus until further notice.
