With a Webucator Java Class

“I have taken trainings in the past at local training schools that have instructors that were clearly not passionate about what they are teaching. Roger was very clearly knowledgeable about Java and had no trouble explaining terms or concepts that up until this training I had never heard of. I would definitely recommend this training to friends and co-workers.”

Gave a good base to start learning Java. Now I have a better understanding of how our Java applications work. I feel more confident that I can eventually become a Java pro. I would take more Webucator classes.
