Pending Retirement for Scheduled Classroom Training ...

We will not be renewing our Golden Valley training center lease, so the October 2012 FrameMaker classes will be the last scheduled, public training offered for FrameMaker 10 and Acrobat X. With the end of our current lease as well as the new financial and other requirements to maintain our formal associatiion with Adobe to be an Adobe Authorized Training Center, we knew it was time to go ahead and announce the end of our formal classroom training.

We want to thank all of our students for attending and all of the loyal companies who have sent us repeat business over the years. You are so much appreciated.

On a happier note, The training center closing does not change or affect other Apt Solutions business. We will still continue our consulting business as well as on-going customer support. You will still be able to contact us at

For some time, in addition to consulting, we will be able to offer self-paced FrameMaker 11 and Acrobat X training complete with email based support (see below). Other consulting services will remain the same for the forseeable future. The last formal training schedule is now posted. Schedule

If you have special training needs, please contact us and we will try and work something out.

Did You Know...
In our many years of offering Adobe Certified Expert FrameMaker and Acrobat training as well as training for Finite Matters' PatternStream that we have not canceled a single class at our Minneapolis (Golden Valley) location because of low enrollment. Because we personally do our own training, we don't need to meet a certain level of enrollment to make a class 'feasible' to run. So, sign up with confidence, we'll be here for this final schedule.

Self-Paced Training With Support ...

Apt Solutions offers our course materials and instructor support to individuals outside the classroom setting -- work through a course at your own pace, and interact with the instructor via email and Acrobat ConnectNow (arranged as needed and agreed upon). This is a great solution for students who cannot travel or who cannot set aside full days for a traditional course at our training facility.

Database Publishing with PatternStream 3
For years PatternStream has been one of the leading applications for setting up complex database publishing projects using Adobe FrameMaker. PatternStream integrates directly with FrameMaker and FrameMaker Server through its application programming interface (API) and is the only software that does so for this type of programmatic information creation... and now the pricing is as low as $7,495 for a desktop license (Server licenses are higher). Customers will be able to upgrade to FrameMaker 10 and FrameMaker Server 10 and be assured that they will receive the same high level of publishing performance. Contact us for more information:
