Meet Your .NET Instructor - Doug Rees

Doug Rees

Hello! My name is Doug Rees and I am one of the most experienced .NET certification instructors in the United Kingdom. With over 10 years as a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) as well as 10 years as a .NET consultant, I can steer you through the tricky path of MCTS exams plus give you lots of real-world experience.

My Background

My initial introduction to the .NET Framework was when I co-wrote the first Visual Basic.NET Microsoft Official Curriculum course in 2000 for Microsoft in Seattle. After that I worked on several other high profile Microsoft courses that have been sold worldwide including various .NET as well as SQL Server 2005 courses.

For the past 6 years I have worked as the lead .NET instructor at Firebrand Training (formerly The Training Camp UK) responsible for teaching over 700 students how to successfully prepare for their Microsoft exams. I know what works best in order to help you achieve your goals, but don't take my word for it, see some of my student's comments.

Since 1999 I have also developed applications as a consultant using the .NET Framework from the original beta up to the current version 3.5. I have worked on AJAX enabled E-commerce ASP.NET websites, intranet applications, click-once deployed Windows applications plus many more. That's why I am able to include many real-world tips and tricks during my courses rather than just focusing on what you need to pass exams.

With my instruction, you will learn much more than just the minimum requirements needed to help you pass your exams. You will learn the skills needed to use .NET on a daily basis in your current job or the job you are striving for.

Finally, if you would like a look at my official Microsoft Transcript, please go to, my ID is 662779 with a password of "dougrees". I look forward to helping you achieve your certification goals sometime soon.
