What people say about our courses

This is what our clients have to say

After attending the Xamarin training from Peruzal on our site, we were able to drastically accelerate our internal mobile app development efforts. Peruzal was a phone call away each time we needed support.
Jonathan Winnaar Scientist @ Institute for Maritime Technology
Came across your courses on Google search, after searching for Ruby training around South Africa. We were completely blown away with how much your trainers know stuff.
Divan Santan Infrastrucutre Engineer @ First National Bank
After our DBA left, we were left with noone with the skills to manage the research and scientific database Infrastrucutre. With Peruzal, we were able to get our team running in a matter of a week.
Encarni Colmenero Astronomer @ Southern African Large Telescope
Our team had different backgrounds, application programmers and astronomers with varied database interactions, we did not have formal training in the MySQL database. Peruzal delivered the training onsite and we were comfortable working with MySQL.
Lucian Botha Astronomy Information System Specialist @ South African Astronomical Observatory
“Coming from an academic background, with no prior exposure to programming, I had to develop an Android mobile app for tuition and research purposes. Peruzal helped me to build and implement the app in record time!”
Thuli Shandu Lecturer @ Univeristy of South Africa
Having years of experience in automation and embedded systems, we wanted our team to have experience in developing for Android. Peruzal did send a trainer onsite and we were blown away with the amount of information we had learnt in just 5 days
Cobus Smith Automation Manager @ ArcelorMittal
