Career Enabler - Linux (RHCSA,RHCE AND CCNA)
07 Jan to 05 Mar 2013
The level of hospitality and teaching was beyond anything you would expect at home and I would definitely return again if I ever find myself in need of more education...
I graduated with my Canadian high School Diploma in 2012 and I decided to embark on a career in IT. Mr older brother Dan has been successful in the high tech industry here in Canada after he attended a boot camp with Koenig Solutions a couple of years ago so I decided to do the same thing.
I flew from Vancouver to Delhi on Jan 5th this year and started my training in Red Hat and Shell Scripting (RHCSA, RHCE, and Bash Shell Scripting) on the 8th of January-March 5th in Delhi. For an 18 year old this was a big adventure and I was a little apprehensive, but from the day of my arrival I was blown away by the friendliness and hospitality of the staff at the Koenig Inn. I was picked up at the airport and taken to my accommodation at the Koenig Inn where I found the room was very clean, food was great... nothing to complain about!
I was on a Career Enabler course which meant starting on a new subject from scratch. The good experience upon my arrival was carried on into the classroom, where the instructors are very knowledgeable and portray concepts that any novice can understand. They answer any queries you may have and thoroughly prepare you for any exams.
Including the price of flights + visa, Koenig was still a much cheaper choice; offering accommodation, food, and training, for almost half the cost of just the training and exams in Canada. They even offer cheap trips to the many tourist locations (including the Taj Mahal) to make the most of your stay in India. I went on a couple of trips, and I made some amazing new friends who were from interesting places such as Sudan and Germany.
Overall the level of hospitality and teaching was beyond anything you would expect at home and I would definitely return again if I ever find myself in need of more education. I would love to try the other training locations in Goa and Dehradun.
Upon returning to Vancouver Island in Canada, I have been successful in getting a good IT job based around the skills I learned at Koenig and with my newly acquired Red Hat System Administrator Certification.
