MCITP: Database Developer: SQL Server 2008
07 Nov to 17 Nov 2011
Considering all the services Koenig provides beyond its high quality training and that it is still significantly cheaper than training anywhere else in the world, even taking into account the travel expense. It will always be on the top of my list for any IT training I may require in the future...
I have attended the MCITP: Database Developer: SQL Server 2008 course at Koenig Solutions, Delhi in November 2011. From the first inquiry about their services till the time I was at the airport waiting for my flight back home, Koenig was always there to answer any questions and helped me with any problem.
The instructor I had was very knowledgeable in SQL Server 2008 and tailored my class not only cover the material in the syllabus but he also went into great depth on subjects which I had indicated as weak points in my knowledge. His grasp on the subject was so complete that he easily, and mostly without reference, transitioned from one topic to another when I asked questions. I could say he cared about the subject and whether I understood everything he was teaching me. It was a very effective training method.
What made the training even more effective was the fact that I never had to worry about anything except learning and studying. Meals were provided, my room was cleaned daily, and if I ever had any problems all I had to do was contact the proper staff personnel and the situation would be handled. For example, I forgot to bring a thumb drive with me to copy the scripts that the instructor supplied daily. All had to do was talk to the assistant, she ordered me a thumb drive at a very good price and it was delivered to my classroom the next day.
While everyone travels to India to gain knowledge in their areas of interest another great advantage is getting to know the country. Koenig also made that easy by providing tours of Delhi and the Taj Mahal on Sundays. I only had one free Sunday so I took the tour of Delhi. Once again all I had to do was send one email stating I was interested and everything else was handled by Koenig. They picked me up at my apartment in the morning took me to several historical points in the city and provided a tour guide to give me great detail into the history of the sites. All of this was provided free of charge except for the entrance fees to the sites. Since I had the Saturday free before heading home I wanted to see the Taj Mahal, and (without trying sounding like a broken record) I emailed the person in charge of tours and asked if I could get a taxi and a train to the Taj Mahal, everything was arranged, they sent me train tickets and the cab was at my apartment promptly at 5:40am to take me to the station. It was a great day.
