Flare Intermediate Training

MadCap Flare Intermediate
(2 days classroom or 3 days online)

“Excellent work by Scott. Knows subject cold! Has a DEEP understanding and an exceptional ability to teach and convey concepts, learning objectives, and understanding.”
J. Bunch, Arris Group

Learn to use MadCap Flare by taking the official course from Scott DeLoach, author of MadCap Flare: The Definitive Guide and MadCap Software’s authorized training guides. Scott will explain how to use Flare like a pro, from starting a new project to building and publishing targets. During this hands-on course, we will cover:

  • creating and configuring TOCs, glossaries, indexes, and the full-text search
  • linking to topics, websites, and PDFs
  • adding drop-down, expanding, and toggler links
  • designing content using stylesheets and table stylesheets
  • designing targets using master pages, skins, and page layouts
  • single sourcing using condition tags
  • reusing content using variables and snippets
  • sharing files between projects
  • setting up, building, and publishing print and online targets

Whether you’ve never create a help system, policy guide, or knowledge base and want to learn “the basics” or you have years of experience and are seeking best practices, tips, tricks, and shortcuts, Scott will help you learn everything you need to know. If you are already using Flare, you can bring your project to class for project-specific recommendations.

Class Size

The online public class is limited to 12 students so that every student can receive individual attention. Onsite or private classes can be held for large groups.


The online class meets each morning from 11:00-2:00 EST, and students have the afternoon to complete the day’s exercises. The instructor is available from 2:30p – 9:30p each day through email and phone to answer questions. Students can even arrange a one-on-one online meeting in the afternoon if they have questions or want to review anything from the morning’s class. Class times are completely flexible for private online classes. Online classes meet using GoToMeeting (free) and either VoIP (free) or a long-distance call. We can arrange phone numbers for most countries worldwide.

In-person training is available worldwide. The class typically meets from 9:00-5:00, but we are completely flexible to your team’s schedule.


The class cost depends on the type of class (group, ASAP, or one-on-one), class size, and location. We also offer large group, government, and non-profit discounts. Please email us at info@clickstart.net, and we can provide a quote.


Payment does not have to be received before class, but we do need a PO number. Payment can be made using a credit card, P-Card, PayPal account, or check.
