Key details

MadCap Flare training course teaching best practice and efficient project management when using Flare in a team authoring environment.

This course is ideal for:

  • Project Managers and Team Leaders who are managing a team.
  • Technical writers and documentation professionals working as part of a team.

MadCap Flare – Project Management and Team Authoring training is available on-request only, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed’ course for your group. We don’t currently offer scheduled (public) MadCap Flare courses.

This approach means that we can tailor your training to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the work you’re going to be doing.

We can host the training at one of our centres, or your venue anywhere in the UK. Whilst attending training at our centres, delegates have the use of a computer running licensed MadCap Flare software to practice the techniques taught. If hosted at your centre, we can provide temporary MadCap Flare licenses for your training computers.

“Excellent Flare training, completely tailored to our needs. The entire process, from initial enquiry through to course completion, was very smooth and problem-free, with an extremely knowledgeable instructor. This is the second time I've used Armada Training, and I would have no reservations about recommending them to others.”
