Course Reviews

I had a wonderful experience in Radical technologies where i did training in Hadoop development under the guidance of Shanit Sir. He started from the very basic and covered and shared everything he knew in this field. He was brilliant and had a lot of experience in this field. We did hands on for every topic we covered, and that’s the most important thing because honestly theoretical knowledge cannot land you a job.
Rohit Agrawal Hadoop
I have recently completed Linux course under Anand Sir and can assuredly say that it is definitely the best Linux course in Pune. Since most of the Linux courses from other sources are strictly focused on clearing the certification, they will not provide an insight into real-world server administration, but that is not the case with Anand Sir’s course. Anand Sir being an experienced IT infrastructure professional has an excellent understanding of how a data center works and all these information is seamlessly integrated into his classes.

I had undergone oracle DBA course under Chetan sir’s Guidance an it was a very good learning experience overall since they not only provide us with theoretical knowledge but also conduct lot of practical sessions which are really fruitful and also the way of teaching is very fine clear and crisp which is easier to understand , overall I had a great time for around 2 months , they really train you well.also make it a point to clear all your doubts and provide you with clear and in-depth concepts hence hope to join sometime again
Reema banerjee Oracle DBA
I have completed Oracle DBA 11g from Radical technology pune. Excellent trainer (chetna gupta ). The trainer kept the energy level up and kept us interested throughout. Very practical, hands on experience. Gave us real-time examples, excellent tips and hints. It was a great experience with Radical technologies.
Mrudul Bhokare Oracle DBA
Linux learning with Anand sir is truly different experience… I don’t have any idea about Linux and system but Anand sir taught with scratch…He has a great knowledge and the best trainer…he can solve all your queries related to Linux in very simple way and giving nice examples… 100 🌟 to Anand Sir.
