.NET training -  WinForms using VB

WinForms Training

WinForms using VB (3 days)

£895 + VAT for most venues (£995 + VAT for London)

Learn how to create Windows Forms application in Visual Studio, using Visual Basic as a coding language (we also run a similar Visual C# training course). If you want to create a Windows application this is the perfect starter course, showing you how to create forms (including datagridviews), code events and create Visual Basic routines.

We don't have any dates scheduled for this course, but we may well consider adding them - it's always worth asking  (or consider an onsite WinForms training course).

Sample customer feedback

"A brilliant course. Completely fulfilled our expectations. We all learned so much."

Janet Connor (Leigh Primary School)

"Exceptional course. The trainer modified the content to suit our needs, based on the software we use at our company."

Alex Howarth (Shop Direct Group)

"I did very much enjoy the course. The pace was good and there was plenty of opportunity to ask questions. I was slightly worried beforehand that I may be in the minority and there would be many things that I wouldn’t understand, but the group meant that this wasn’t a problem. I now need to have time to practice what I’ve learnt! Lunch in a restaurant was good too, it made a good break in the day to clear the mind for the afternoon session. Many thanks for all your help. I will certainly bear you in mind for any further training we may need. "

Ginny Lefebvre (Aiglon College)

"I was happy with the content - the two days just flew by. I want to try out what I have learnt when I get back to the office. Thank you."
