ABSTRACT
A Great Britain's company has set up its information technology training business in Spain's Costa Blanca in a bid to draw in delegates with the promise of sun, sea, and skills. Jump Advance is offering intensive residential courses in Microsoft's product portfolio, ranging from Office applications to .Net programming. Frank Lane, sales and marketing director for Jump Advance, claims its courses are priced to compete with, or even undercut, non-residential courses in the UK. The price of the courses doesn't include flights, but Lane says that these can be less expensive than Great Britain train fares.
