I have provided training on behalf of more that 30 different training companies, but it's much cheaper for me to come to you without involving a 3rd party. I've trained throughout the world, from Scandinavia to Australia and many places in between. I've taught Windows programming to Microsoft, Java to Sun (its creators) and Oracle (who took it over) and for those with long memories, OS/2 to IBM.

I'm not just a trainer though - I work on many software projects from booking systems to machine vision, specialized charts to x-ray spectrometry, so if you need extra expertise for a project then I can help.

These are some of my direct customers:
