After having made the decision to do the Sun Certified Java Programmer course, I started looking for a training partner in Europe. As I work freelance, time is money, and therefore a flexible training date was an important aspect for me. I had never intended to do the training outside of Europe but, after comparing various offers, I was surprised to find that the offer from Koenig Solutions was more than 60 percent cheaper than all the others, even when including the additional costs for the flight.
My trip started on the third of January. Leaving a snow-covered Munich behind me, I headed off for Delhi. Even though my flight was 5 hours delayed the driver was still waiting for me at the airport.
As a mechanical engineer, programming is more of a hobby than a profession for me, so I was ready for two tough weeks ahead. Despite having booked a group course I was pleased to discover that I was the only participant, so I received 1-on-1 training for the same price. After two exhausting weeks I passed the exam with the help of my very committed trainer, Deepak.
I rewarded myself with two more weeks in India, and enjoyed a holiday in Rajasthan. Thank you, Koenig, for the competent organization and a great time in India
