The Google Maps API lets you embed Google Maps in your own web pages with JavaScript. The API provides a number of utilities for manipulating maps (just like on the http://maps.google.com web page) and adding content to the map through a variety of services, allowing you to create robust maps applications on your website.

Students will learn how to make maps with clickable markers, apply good CSS and JavaScript coding practices, also how to use multiple geocoding web services to translate physical addresses into latitudes and longitudes, and utilise location data in their application.

This Google Maps API training course will cover topics related to scalability, including marker clustering and on-the-fly image rendering techniques to display thousands of points on the map.

Advanced topics include: building your own info windows and tooltips, creating your own map tiles, and utilising publicly available census data to populate your own geocoding database.

Our Google Maps API Developer Training Course:

  • Allows you to achieve your certifications in a fraction of the time of 'traditional training' while delivering industry-leading exam passing percentages
  • Helps students grasp complex technical concepts more easily by identifying and catering to individual student learning styles through a mixed visual, auditory and kinaesthetic-tactual delivery system
  • Enhances retention by employing accelerated learning techniques focused on committing information to long-term memory

Firebrand goes digital

We’re currently migrating from printed to digital courseware. Some courseware is already available in digital, while other books remain in printed form. To find out if this course is digital, call us on (02) 8006 1061.

There are several benefits of easy-to-use digital courseware: downloads are immediate, and you’ll always have your courseware available wherever you are. You won’t need to wait for a printed book to be delivered before you start learning – and it’s better for the environment. You can choose to download the courseware to your own device, or borrow one of ours.

Considering a Microsoft course? Always have the most up-to-date Microsoft digital courseware with ‘Fresh Editions’. This gives you access to all versions of digital courseware – you’ll receive updates and revisions of your textbook, at no charge, for the life of that course.

Examination Passing Policy

Should a student complete a Firebrand Training Program without having successfully passed all vendor examinations, the student may re-attend that program for a period of one year.  Students will only be responsible for accommodations and vendor exam fees.

Please note

  • * Not on all courses
  • ** Examination vouchers are not included for the following courses: PMI, GIAC, CISSP CBK Review and CSX Practitioner Level 1,2 and 3
  • *** On site testing is not included for our PMI, GIAC, (ISC)2, CREST, CSX Practitioner or ITIL Managers and Revision Certification Courses.
  • **** Accommodation not included on the CISSP CBK Review Seminar
