My training in Shimla was an eye opening experience. After a challenging trip up to Shimla from Chandigarh, I was happy to arrive safe at my accommodation. At first I was staying at the Koenig Student Apartment, but I upgraded immediately the next day to the Willow Banks Hotel. I must say a fine hotel with nice people. If you choose to stay there I would recommend the Super Deluxe room. The difference in price with the deluxe room isn't that much. The super deluxe room is on the backside of the hotel which will give you peace and quiet for your studies.
My experience with the Koenig training center in Shimla was very good. Everyone is very understanding and will do anything in their power to make your stay and studies as pleasant as possible. They have accommodated me very well.
I went for a 5 week MCPD boot camp, normal track, one-on-one training. I have learned much. I did have some little issues with my first trainer, also because my trainer left after 2 weeks of training. But then my new trainer arrived. I immediately had a very good connection with her. She is very nice, patient and a skilled trainer! My last two weeks with her have been my best weeks in Shimla. If I had the choice I would have requested her from the beginning. I did get sick in my last weeks in Shimla, but Koenig Solutions took very good care of me and checked in almost daily at my hotel to see how I was doing. I would like to express my appreciation to Praveen and his staff in Shimla for taking good care of me.
I did get homesick when I was there. But my trainer made it more easier for me. She also had lots of patience when I asked the same question maybe 100 times. If I would go back to India or somewhere else for training with Koenig Solutions, I will not want any other trainer but her. Koenig is very lucky to have such a wonderful and skilled person as a trainer.
In my 5 weeks, I achieved my MCPD Web Development 4.0 and I scored 1000 on of my exams. With no previous experience in IT, I can now happily say that I am junior Microsoft Developer with global knowledge which I am still upgrading.
