Spring Core training taught by experienced trainers

We currently have 6 experienced VMware Certified Instructors available who teach Spring Core training courses. But did you know that our trainers are not full-time teachers?

Our trainers are IT consultants who work with Java and Spring on a daily basis, and encounter certain challenges while doing so. Their work experience allows them to give our students real-life examples and practical tips and tricks. They love to share their insights with our students!

All trainers at The Campus are passionate IT professionals who have expertise in their field of work, and are also seasoned trainers. The Campus guarantees a didactical approach by offering its trainers dedicated coaching and by following up on the quality of the training courses delivered.
