ADDITIONAL TRAINING / EDUCATION [Starting with most recent qualification obtained]

15 January – 10 October 2003

Computer Training Institute www.cti.co.za

Diploma: Comprehensive Programming

The course covered software engineering, relational database design and program design, with practical exposure to concepts like use case modeling and object oriented and GUI. Delphi was my programming language, I enjoyed every part of it. On completion of my diploma, I did a Tech-Check examination for Delphi as well as SQL Server 2000. My results show that I have the equivalent to between one and three years working experience, in both Delphi and SQL Server 2000.

OBJECTIVE

To be an integral part of a dynamic company where my enthusiasm and hard work will lead to success. I need to be part of a progressive team where creative thinking and collaboration solves problems and contributes to the well being of the company.

My interest in computers started when I installed and setup my father’s PC at home. Whatever software was needed, I installed for him and I am used to solving whatever problems crop up, like getting the software to talk to the hardware. Since then I became interested in programming and so started my studies.
