The aim of this course is to fill any gaps in the student's level of knowledge of the CA-Easytrieve language.

The modules available are shown below. This course will be specifically tailored for use at a site and timings will therefore be dependant on which modules are selected, but as a guide 3 or 4 modules may be covered in a day depending on their complexity.
