Soliant Unveils PHP Classroom Training

Discussion created by on Feb 27, 2013

Soliant Consulting is pleased to announce that the company now offers classroom based Zend PHP Training courses.  Soliant is a well-established Zend Solution Partner and Platinum Member of the FileMaker Business Alliance. Soliant is the only organization in North America to offer Zend courses in a classroom setting.

Soliant’s Zend training is available in Chicago, Philadelphia and the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as on location upon special request.  A Zend instructor – each an experienced, certified developer -- from Soliant teaches each class with a hands-on approach.

The courses include:

PHP I: Foundations Training
The PHP I: Foundations course is designed to provide non-programmers with a solid foundation in the PHP language. This course guides you through the basics of PHP with an experiential approach, filled with numerous examples and hands-on exercises, including substantial practice in coding a functional application. All of the exercises are designed to reinforce key learning. You will also have the opportunity to use the Zend Studio development environment  to start your coding adventures the easy and correct way!

This course is designed for those who want to learn the basics of the PHP language, and assumes some familiarity with web sites – what they are and the very basics of how they work – but no programming experience is necessary. Web designers who want to become PHP Developers would certainly benefit from this course.

PHP II: Higher Structures Training
The PHP II: Higher Structures Training course is designed for novice PHP developers who want to further advance their skills in the PHP language and already know the basics of PHP syntax, language constructs, and web site functionality. It utilizes a hands-on approach with numerous examples and practical exercises, as well as a key development project, to enhance the learning experience. You will also have the opportunity to use the Zend Studio PHP IDE to continue improving your coding skills utilizing best practices and effective tools.

This class expands a beginning programmer’s understanding of the PHP language. This intermediate-level course builds upon knowledge gained in PHP I: Foundations.

Zend PHP 5.3 Certification Training
The Zend PHP 5.3 Certification Training course prepares PHP programmers for the challenge of passing the PHP 5.3 certification exam, will help you achieve the status of Zend Certified Engineer (ZCE).  It includes an exam voucher for the PHP Certification exam.  All developers who become certified after taking this course receive a free perpetual copy of  Zend Studio and automatic invite access to the Zend Developer cloud at

This is a test preparation and PHP review course – it does not teach PHP.   The course will guide you through an in-depth and intense review of all of the major topics within the 10 certification areas. Plus, it will contain important information about the exam itself and strategies for answering the exam questions.

Zend Framework
Soliant will offer Zend Framework training in late 2013.
