Software Engineering

Kristian (the trainer) was very well prepared and anticipated potential changes in the course content ( we had varying levels of experience). He also integrated information specific to our company in a professional and dynamic way.

Maell Cullen - Altran UK

Software Engineering

The trainer was excellent, the only reason I have not indicated all sixes was that there were some subjects that I was less interested in but this is just due to personal taste and career path.

There were computer based activities e.g writing code and using existing programs.

Mel Irfan - Altran UK

Software Engineering

Enthusiastic and interesting trainer.

Adrian Turner - Altran UK

Software Engineering

I liked the refresher of what we had learnt at the end of each day and at other regular intervals. Kristian (the trainer) seemed to have anticipated questions that we asked and had presentations and knowledge to help answer these questions.
