Whatever the course you are interested in attending - Java, Android, C++, C# or any of our other courses - please first check to make sure that you meet the prerequisites for that course.
Incus Data courses are designed to cover a lot of material in a limited time. This means that we are very serious when we specify that you need to already have certain knowledge and skills before you attend a course.
Maybe you think you are a fast learner, so you can skip the basics. Maybe you think a good way to save money is to go straight to the more advanced course. If you think that, you are wrong.
Meeting the prerequisites for a course is not optional - it is essential. And it is as much for your benefit as it is for ours and for the other delegates attending the course.
You will benefit the most from any training if it is appropriate to your ability and your current level of skill. When you learn to drive a car, you first learn the basics of steering and changing gears. You don't start with parallel parking and hand-brake turns. The same applies to all types of learning.
When you attend a course and you don't have the required knowledge for the course, it will have a negative impact on you:
Our lecturers will always try and help everyone who is on the course, but it is unfair to the other delegates on the course when you don't meet the prerequisites. Think of the ways it will have a negative impact on them:
Good training is expensive. Attending a course that you are not ready for is a waste of time and money, because you will not derive real benefit from it.
Please note that, for some courses, the lecturer may decided to test delegates at the start of the course to make sure that the prerequisite knowledge is in place. This may be in the form of a short written test.
If a delegate does not have the specified prerequisites, we reserve the right to postpone their attendance to another more suitable course.
The prerequisites for each course are specified in the course outline. They vary from course to course, but there are a few prerequisites, in particular, to keep in mind:
If you are not sure whether you meet the requirements, please contact us. We will either arrange to have a lecturer talk to you, or we can arrange an assessment.
