Certified Training

MadCap Software Icon

Our certified training classes are designed to get you and your team up and running with MadCap Flare in no time. Through MadSkills, a subsidiary of MadCap Software, we provide web-based and on-site training courses covering a variety of topics, all taught by our Certified Flare Instructors.

Using a combination of lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on practice to introduce the major features of Flare, all students receive a course training guide (via FedEx), access to course instructors after the class, and are guaranteed small class sizes to maximize engagement with the instructor.

For training opportunities outside of North America or for large teams, including on-site courses, contact us learn more about courses offered in your area.

For all training-related inquiries, call or contact us today.


This course has proved very beneficial to my personal development. It was well balanced between lecture and hands-on learning. The coursebook is a great educational tool and quick reference.

Thank you, what an amazing class this is! Well done to all of you who collaborated on the training manual. There is no question about the amount of time and effort that went into that wonderful guide. And, having Scott DeLoach as the instructor just totally blew me away.
