Caribation IT-Training

Learning IT in the Caribbean

Over 3 000 000 people travel to the Dominican Republic each year, most as tourists. While everyone enjoys our beaches and mountains some travellers would also like to improve their IT-skills.

Caribation extends this offer to website owners, webmasters, programmers and eCommerce entrepreneurs who are eager to add more IT-power to their projects.

All courses are instructor led. We do not offer online courses.


Loks like learning on the beach...
But it isn't. All courses are scheduled to take 8 hours a day and take place in a conference room of a 4-Star hotel. While it is located on a beautiful beach, you won't have time for a swim during classes. The class hours are 9:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. for american students and start even earlier for our european participants.

What can I learn?

Our courses cover the most practical aspects of the web business: PHP, Database (MySQL), Zend Framework, eCommerce with Magento Web-Shop, Web Design with HTML5 and CSS. Caribation IT-Training is all about practical, down-to-earth computing. We want you to come back home and apply what you have learned immediately onto your own web site. Most classes are organized in a workshop mode, which means that you practice on the notebook you bring with you, taking home the material you have learned
