MCPD Web Developer 4 and ASP.NET MVC4 (Koenig Shimla)

I found the Koenig website by chance when I was looking to upgrade my Microsoft .NET Web Development skills and certifications. The idea of studying in the Himalayan city of Shimla really appealed, especially when I compared the cost of doing the same training courses and exams closer to home. Koenig Solutions provides very good value for money in my opinion.

RedHat Certified Engineer training (Koenig Shimla)

I'm Hero Bruinsma from Netherlands. In March 2013, I did the RedHat Certified Engineer training with Koenig Solutions in Shimla. The journey from the Netherlands to Shimla is long, but the people at Koenig organized it perfectly. From Delhi I took the train to Kalka. In Kalka I got onboard the world heritage train to Shimla (my return journey was simpler - Volvo bus from Shimla to Delhi). At each stage, I was met as planned and helped onto the next stage of my journey.
