Macresource Computer Solutions Announces Computer Training Courses for Web Developers and Graphic Designers

London, UK (PRWEB) June 15, 2006

Macresource Computer Solutions ( will be holding a series of intensive one-week computer training courses at its new residential training centre conveniently located close to Paris Orly airport. Aimed at an international audience and limited to six delegates per group, courses will include Dreamweaver, Flash/ActionScript, PHP/MySQL, Adobe Creative Suite 2 and Excel VBA Programming.

Training sessions will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and feature expert tuition, guidance and real-world advice from a team of top-notch trainers who are highly experienced developers and practitioners.

“As well as formal tuition, delegates will be given a series of challenging practical exercises,” says Grant Gamble, Director of Training at Macresource Computer Solutions. “They will have unlimited access to the training machines and will even have the opportunity to start work on their own live projects.”

Gamble adds that because “all work and no play” can become tedious, the training centre offers outlets for relaxation, including a fully equipped gym, swimming pool and game rooms. “Delegates will have the opportunity to balance the mental exertion required to master IT technology with plenty of physical and recreational activity,” he says.

These courses are an extension of the popular week-long courses that Macresource Computer Solutions has been running at its central London training centre for two years. The residential versions of these courses are aimed at the approximate fifty percent of delegates who travel into London from abroad (mainly from Europe and the Middle East) or from other parts of the UK and stay in London’s expensive hotels. The new residential courses will remove the delegates’ travel and accommodation worries. The training centre is a 20 minute taxi ride from Paris Orly airport and accommodation and all meals are included in the cost of the course.

The three courses that relate to Web development (Dreamweaver, Flash/ActionScript and PHP/MySQL) will be run back-to-back, enabling delegates who so wish to take all three courses as a single unit. The Dreamweaver week shows delegates how to construct both basic and complex sites incorporating CSS stylesheets, JavaScript behaviors and dynamic, database-driven content. The Flash/ActionScript week thoroughly examines the presentation and animation features of Flash before showing delegates how to create sophisticated Web content controlled with ActionScript 2. The PHP/MySQL course focuses on creating dynamic Web sites fed by a MySQL database server.

The Excel VBA Programming course is suitable for experienced Excel users and offers in-depth coverage of Excel macros and application development. Delegates will be shown how to approach the development of customised solutions which automate and enhance Excel's built-in features.

The Adobe Creative Suite 2 course looks at Adobe’s core prepress applications: Photoshop (the industry standard in professional image editing, retouching and composition), InDesign (the powerful page layout program for editing and creating publications of any description) and Acrobat (the versatile prepress and Web tool for creating, modifying and enhancing PDF files).

The address of the residential training centre is: 10 Impasse du Soufflet, 78730 Saint Arnoult en Yvelines, France. Booking and further information is available by calling 0800 1950 502 (from the UK) or +44 207 298 6109 (internationally) and also by visiting the Macresource Web site:
