Net Resources Ltd

I attended a course at Net Resource a wonderful place in Edinburgh for a short time whilst I was unemployed in 2004. They are a commercial company, but also ran a Graduate Internet Training Course for people who were unemployed. The basic course was 10 weeks long, & you learnt html, css, photoshop & some other web technologies. We then did a live project for 6 weeks, which was a fantastic opportunity. I built a website for the acclaimed wild life artist Chris Rose, with my good friend Julie James
