.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 - or you could consider an onsite Visual Basic training course.
