By the end of the course delegates will be able to:
  • Write C++ programs
  • Debug C++ programs.
  • Examine existing code and determine its function.
  • Use classes, function overloading, operator overloading, inheritance and virtual functions within C++ programs.

A better C
Arrays, pointers and references, new and delete.

Functions in C++
Function overloading, default arguments, inline functions.

Template classes and functions.

Operator overloading
Basics, binary operators, the this pointer, relational operators, unary operators. Members versus friends.

Base class access control, protected members, multiple inheritance, virtual base classes.

More I/O
Manipulators, customising inserters, extractors. File I/O.

Why Choose Us

SNT trainers score an average of over 90% on the three main areas of:
  • Ability to teach
  • Technical knowledge
  • Answering questions
“Excellently presented by a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic trainer.” P.D. General Dynamics

We limit our maximum class size to 8 delegates; often we have less than this. This ensures optimal interactivity between delegates and instructor.
"Excellent course. The small class size was a great benefit…" M.B. IBM

We write our own courses; courseware does not just consist of slides and our slides are diagrams not bullet point text. A typical chapter provides clearly defined objectives with a chapter overview, slides with text underneath, a quiz at the end to check the learning of the students. Hands on exercises are at the end and are used to reinforce the theory.
