Welcome to Well House Consultants' website. We offer training courses in a variety of Open Source subjects, including Java, which is the technology that we're covering on this page. Please follow one of the links at the top of the page if you're looking for another of our technologies.
Courses run at our own training centre in Melksham, Wiltshire, England. Because many of our subjects are niche, we also provide overnight accommodation in our own hotel rooms within our training centre, and you may book the course and accommodation as a single package.
We run public courses, each of which is scheduled to run from 3 to 9 times per year, and on which we accept bookings from different organisations and individuals who wish to learn about Java following our published agenda. Public courses are all written by ourselves, lead by our own tutor, and limited to just eight delegates per course so that the tutor has plenty of time to answer any questions that arise, and provide personal support during practical sessions.
We also run private courses for individual companies / organisations. Private courses are scheduled to suit our client's needs, and can run at our training centre or at customer premises almost anywhere in the world. Because our course materials are written by ourselves and modular, we can tailor private courses to suit our client's needs.
