.NET training -  Introduction to VB.NET

Visual Basic Training

Visual Basic for Beginners Training Course

£695 + VAT for most venues (£795 + VAT for London)

2 days

This introductory course focuses on how to write programs in Visual Basic (called VB by its friends, and also VB.NET). Forget about the user interface (this two-day course does), but learn instead how to use conditions, loops, error-trapping and all of the other standard VB programming techniques.

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

Ian Wilson (NHS Pension Scheme)

"Personally, I thought the course was excellent, and it was a really good introduction to get started. I haven’t used SSIS before, but I can see why it is a useful tool to have and why we use it here at StepChange!"

Garry Kernan (StepChange Debt Charity)

"I would like to say that I enjoyed the course very much and found it very informative. The trainer was incredibly professional and helped explain all the elements in the SSRS Course, ensuring that we fully understood each topic before moving on. I really liked the fact that the trainer explained multiple methods of achieving the same outcome in the use of SSRS as it helped us all to find what method was best suited for us. The course was really well structured and I didn’t feel rushed when completing the exercises, which were an added benefit as they allowed us to expand on the skills we were learning during the training. The course was beneficial to my personal development and I have already begun applying the training in my role. The supporting documents provided have also been great in helping me implement the training in practice."
