Return to the Introduction to Programming outline
Outside of the fact I am in the States and it required me to be up very early for 5 days, I don't regret it for a minute. The course was outstanding. The instructor could not have been better. I have been in IT for 44 years, have taught courses myself, taken many, and believe this was the best course I have ever taken. The material was spot on and all relevant. The labs were perfect and just the right amount. I could not be happier with the knowledge gained and hope I can attend the advanced course in the near future. Thank you again! .... continue

We got through the course material at a reasonable pace. The instructor John was able to answer any and all questions I had and elaborated on more concepts that he felt were suitable to my level of training.
Keiron - Software developer - IT - August 2022
Tarn was fantastic. Very thorough teaching and all in a friendly and engaging manner. I had internet issues that caused me to miss quite a bit of the morning session on day 2 and Tarn offered to stay after the days training had finished to fill me in on what I missed. I really appreciated this and think it spoke volumes about the care and attention Tarn had for our training. .... continue

Aderonke - Technical Support Associate - Professional Services - April 2022
A real training course, with hands on labs, explanations given in real time, properly described at high or detailed levels. Trainer had patience to answer all questions, no matter were more or less "smart" ones. Interaction with candidates was truly professional, calm and understanding, no one was left behind. .... continue
