.NET training -  Adv C# | Classes & LINQ

C# Training

Advanced C# training course

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

3 days

This advanced course assumes that you're already familiar with the basics of C# programming (see notes on course prerequisites at the bottom of this page). The course is aimed at people who know the basics of programming in C#, but want to know what words like inheritance, delegates, interfaces and classes really mean.

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 C# training course).

Sample customer feedback

"Only having me on the course was very useful and I covered more than the advertised content which was good. I found the C# course (previously attended) to be very useful."

Paul Martin (Ashton Sixth Form College)

"(Intro to SQL).100%. A+++. (Adv C#, Classes & LINQ). A++. Really enjoyed and very helpful course. No faults whatsoever. Will use Wise Owl again"

Tom Derbyshire (PAM Group)

There are lots more where these came from (or just refresh this page to change the quotes shown).

You should not attend this course if you are a beginner at C programming (in which case choose our two-day introduction to C# course instead). If you are already an expert on creating classes and implementing inheritance this is not the course for you either.
