Hello, I am from Holland and have been working in IT for 25 years mainly as an IBM Lotus Notes specialist. After such a long time I thought it would be a good idea to get some certifications and training in Microsoft systems.
I have attended courses at training centers in Holland before which have been paid for by my previous companies I have worked for, but after working as a contractor for many years I found that I need to pay for such courses myself.
Finding that, I have realized I didn't have time or discipline for self-study and that I needed to take some time out to do some courses. I found the cost of doing this in Holland off-putting; they really do charge exorbitant prices.
My colleagues of ING Bank in Holland told me about Koenig and I started reading about them on the webpage of Koenig Solutions. I was also curious as to what the facilities at Koenig would be like and how well the trainers would be at speaking English. I took a try and booked my first training at Koenig in Delhi, MCITP: Enterprise Administrator Windows Server 2008.
On my first day of landing in India in 2010, 2 days before the course, I was pleasantly surprised to find someone waiting to collect me from the airport and he handed me an envelope with enough money to live on for a few days. Everything I needed was there such as an info pack explaining everything about the course, places to eat and useful advice on traveling around Delhi.
For me the Koenig Student Apartment (Delhi) was too noisy and Koenig offered me to start the training in Koenig Solutions, Dehradun free of extra costs. Together with another student and my teacher the driver drove us to the railway station where we got a first class seat to Dehradun. Dehradun was an excellent place, in the middle of the mountains and the nature for me was the best place to study.
My teacher was excellent, also he spoke understandable English. I passed all the exams and learned a lot. Even I took extra lessons and exams and became MCITP Windows 7 Enterprise professional.
The Student Apartments of Koenig has everything you need, Wi-Fi connection to internet, breakfast and dinner, really everything. For lunch, you need to order in the morning and you will get it at 1 PM, all was included in the price of your training.
Again, excellent pick and drop service of Koenig till the railway station, 1 day stay in Delhi and to the airport. The training, service and accommodation were excellent!
In 2011, I decided to come again to Koenig in India, this time to Goa to become MCITP: SharePoint Administrator 2010. Again the service was good, nice Koenig Student Apartment (Goa) and an excellent trainer. I think Goa is a nice place if you want to have some time to spend on the beaches and bars, but for only a training Dehradun is the nicest place till now for me.
I´ll be back again at Koenig Solutions!
