This class was perfect for me. I have had a few months developing in Silverlight to get me going before the class. This class filled in gaps of my knowledge and brought me up to speed in areas that I was kind of on the wrong track.

The staff at Webucator was amazingly helpful, and willing to make things happen at the last minute. They definitely went above and beyond what I have experienced with any other training organization. Thanks!!!

I've taken a couple of courses through Webucator and I've always been impressed with the individual attention that the teacher directed to the students. I've referred a few colleagues to Webucator and will continue to do so.
