How it Works
The live training class is broadcast directly to your company using Citrix's www.gotomeeting.com. All you need is a computer with a high speed internet connection and a phone, or you can use VoIP with a headset and microphone. During each training session you simply connect to the training seminar via the internet and you see the trainer's computer in a window on your machine. If multiple students at your company want to take the class (Note: Each participant must pay for the class) you can simply hook up a projector to your computer so everyone in the room can see. As the trainer steps through presentations and uses Visual Studio to create and execute code samples you see it all as it is happening.


For audio hookup, you call into the specified phone number and join a conference call where you can hear the trainer and vice versa, or you can use VoIP and connect with a headset and microphone. To minimize disruptions, you can post questions in a chat window for the instructor to answer.

Cost

The cost for the class is $999 per student, but if you take advantage of our early-bird specials you get the early bird price of $799 per student. Note that if you have multiple students taking the training, each student must pay for the class.
