What is uLearnIT FileMaker Mentoring?

You want to start or add to a FileMaker project

You have an idea of what you want to develop in FileMaker and how it will benefit your business. You know that FileMaker has great potential to streamline your business. You have made some progress by teaching yourself and accessing online help. But what do you do if you can’t get things working or you are unsure of the ‘right’ way to do it?

Imagine having help on hand whenever you need it

Imagine that when you have a problem or something is not working the way you want, expert help is right there. Instead of Googling around for ages and not really seeing the answer to your specific situation, you can just ask and get an answer. While FileMaker is very user friendly and powerful software, the flexibility provides many alternative methods. Experienced support will enhance your development and implementation.

FileMaker Mentoring will show you how

This program puts our training philosophy into practice:

See. Do. Understand.

Mentoring will put you on the fast track to building an awesome custom FileMaker solution that will do what you have dreamed.

The Fine Print

  • All development examples provided are yours to use free and forever. uLearnIT does not claim any IP but general solutions may be developed and reused with others. Anything that you provide or that is specific to the operation of your business will always be kept confidential.
  • All contact is exclusively with me, David Head. You will never be handed off to another developer or trainer.
  • You can call or email me at any time. If I am not currently available, I will get back to you ASAP. Please indicate if an urgent response is required.
  • The program will start the day of first contact after payment.
  • Payment is due monthly in advance to begin. Payments will be made on the same day each month for the duration of the program.
  • If you are not happy after our first meeting for any reason, you can request a full refund. After that, payment are non-refundable in full or in part.
  • The 2 month program runs continuously. For longer programs, we realise that sometimes life (and holidays) get in the way of development. For the 6 and 12 month programs, you can suspend mentoring for any month to be added onto the end of the program.


It’s free to apply. On application, we will have a discussion of where you are with FileMaker development and the projects you are working on. If it seems like a good fit for us both, we will invoice you for the program and set a date to get started. 

To apply for the uLearnIT FileMaker Mentoring program, send an email with your contact details and a brief description of your current FileMaker development to david@ulearnit.com.au. 

The time required to personally service each individual program means that I have limited spaces available. If no spaces are available, you can be put on a waiting list.
