Classroom Training

3-day fast track C# training course

Classroom training course - online version also available

3 days

If you're learning C# you may find it difficult to spare two days out of the office for our basic C# course followed by two days for our intermediate C# course.  This combined intensive course aims to cover the combined four days of training in just 3 days. See our fast track notes for how this is possible (answer: by going more quickly and taking less prisoners ...).

Why Choose Us?

Sample customer feedback

Our thanks to everyone who agreed to share their thoughts (note that some of these reviews may be for our online courses).

"We had a great trainer and extremely knowledgeable. He kept up a great energy throughout the 2 days and tailored the course to what we were most interested in."

Stefan Store (Moneybarn Limited)

"Really informative and good use of interaction. Engaging trainer who is clearly very passionate about SQL & always happy to answer questions/explain things further. Recommended by colleagues."

Alex Martin (URIS Group/Towergate Insurance)

"I thought the course was very good and our trainer was excellent in leading us. He went at the perfect pace and allowed us to contribute but also question anything and he didn’t move on until we all were happy. I think as a group we got lots out of it to take forward and we are all looking forward to putting what we learnt into practice. I think what would be great is the potential for an intermediate course once we have found our feet with what we learnt from the beginner course. Also, the actual course literature was great too and it's nice to have something comprehensive to refer back to, to support us in implementing what we took from the course and that’s in addition to being able to keep the actual work we did on the course. "

Steve Taylor (Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust)

"(Intro Power BI course) Excellent pace for 2 days. Plenty of interaction and humour. Great lunch breaks. (DAX course) Excellent course. Very well delivered on a "tricky" topic which could have sent me slightly mad. Great pace of delivery. This is the first time I felt I could do the same course again! (Advanced Power BI course) Excellent delivery of a new course. Quick measures were very useful after the DAX course (a good compliment)."

John Pelan (Coloplast Ltd)

"Liked the flexibility of the trainer to vary and adapt the content of the course dependent on our needs. Prior knowledge of Wise Owl by one of the team members, lead to our choice."

Iain Stemp (The Cambridge Building Society)
