IT Success Stories: Luis

Luis - Web Development

Why did you do a Web Development course with The Training Room?

I wanted to become a certified web developer but needed to work whilst I studied. Studying with The Training Room allowed me to do that with their flexible e-learning course.

What did you enjoy most about the course?

The support I received.

My tutor was incredible and he really went the extra mile for me! He was always happy to help when I got a little stuck with my studies and was quick to answer all of my questions. Even now I’ve finished my course he is still willing to support me, and The Training Room are very lucky to have such a fantastic tutor.

I also really enjoyed the structure of the course it allowed me to fit my studies around my busy working life and I never felt pressured by tight deadlines.

Also, the fact that they support you in finding a job is really helpful and the assistance in building my CV was a big plus.

How did you find fitting the course around your work commitments and personal life?

It was quite easy as there aren’t any strict deadlines, this allowed me to do as much as I wanted when I wanted, and I did most of the work over the weekends and whenever else it suited me.

What were you doing before the course?

I was a Warehouse Operative at Amazon working 40 hours a week.

What have you been doing since you finished the course with The Training Room?

The first role I got after I graduated at The Training Room was as a Web Designer. This was doing contract work for Red27Mobile this involved the creation of advertising material, developing landing pages with HTML/CSS & JavaScript and assisting the frontend developers with all necessary design.

After my role as a Web Designer I started a job in E-commerce & IT Support for Select Corporate Clothing. But now I am just starting a new role with Virgin Media as a Junior Software Developer and I am really excited to start!

What advice would you give anyone about to start our Web Development course?

Always keep practicing, it is definitely an industry where you are rewarded for hard work.

Also, never leave things to the last minute always give yourself enough time to complete the work and you will enjoy the course so much more.
