Classroom training -  Fast track C#

Classroom Training

3-day fast track C# training course

Available as classroom training course only

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).

Our fast-track courses are only available as tailored training, either at your premises or at either our London or Manchester venues (here's why).
