All my training was booked as 1-on-1 and the ‘journey’ would take me two and a half months in total. However, as I had been advised by friends in the UK, the Koenig trainers are the best and my trainers were no exception...
Well, my first experience of Shimla was arriving at the railway station in early Feb, dressed suitably (not!) in shorts, a t-shirt and flip flops. Clearly I had not read the paperwork thoroughly enough as Shimla is in the Himalayas and it was winters!
Nevertheless, after that brief self-inflicted glitch, I soon settled in. Shimla is a beautiful place and, the staff at the new centre, led by Praveen, cannot do enough for you – a special thank you also goes out to Raju (the chef etc etc), who looks after your every needs.
So, what about me – prior to arriving at Shimla, I had spent 24 years in the Royal Navy and had only really dabbled with IT. I decided at 40ish! to start a new career and enrolled to undertake CompTIA A+, N+, MCSE Server 2003 and VMWare VSphere4.
All my training was booked as 1-on-1 and the ‘journey’ would take me two and a half months in total. However, as I had been advised by friends in the UK, the Koenig trainers are the best and my trainers were no exception. Their efforts and commendable patience whilst teaching me meant that I passed all my exams and I now look forward, hopefully, to a successful second career in IT.
Thank you Koenig for the excellent experience and I plan to return next year.
