The course explains how to optimize the VBA technology, how to build more efficient applications by leveraging the best VBA coding techniques, when to use VBA and when other technologies may provide a better solution, and some best practices using VBA in iFIX. Special attention is paid to troubleshooting common mistakes made when using VBA. So, whether you are brand new to VBA or have been using it for awhile, this course is for you!

The Distance Learning classes will be held over a 5-day period, with each session running approximately four hours per day. Start and end times will be communicated prior to the start of the class as timing will depend on the geographical location of students and their respective time zones.
