What people say about our training

High quality, industry focused instruction in a format that is convenient for working professionals.

Most of the time, we were typing in our IDEs and loading our own code in our browsers. It was real hands-on practice, and that's great for my learning style. The instructor was always there and willing to jump in and help, but was also willing to let us struggle a bit to figure things out - which helps to cement the learning. Good class!

I found this course to be well worth taking, and I also found the instructor to be extremely knowledgeable and an excellent teacher. The course material and topics covered are a great start to learning Java.
