What we do


With a formidable reputation for quality and expertise within the UNIX, Oracle, Linux, Red Hat, Java, MySQL, Web Development, Business Analysis and ITIL arena, StayAhead Training enjoy an enviable position amongst the top IT Technical training organisations in the UK.

The UNIX curriculum not only covers standard UNIX but includes a range of Solaris, AIX and HP-UX courses. The Linux curriculum covers general Linux plus specific SUSE, LPI & Red Hat training courses. The Oracle curriculum also has depth with courses available for DBA's, Developers and End Users. With the Oracle e-business suite growing in popularity a range of Oracle Financials courses are also available.

If certification is important to you then again we do not disappoint taking delegates to the level required to take the examinations in Solaris, Red Hat, SUSE, LPI, MySQL, Java, Oracle PL/SQL Developer and Oracle DBA.

The Web Development & Java curriculum goes from strength to strength with courses available in HTML & CSS, Javascript, jQuery and Java.

Our flexibility comes from developing our own independent courses, including high quality course material that is not only written to support the learning process but can also act as a helpful reference guide on the delegates return to work. A high level of practical work with a guaranteed workstation per delegate re-enforces the learning process.

I enjoyed my training with StayAhead. The training centre was easy to find and reach. Very close to a bus stop and underground station. The course content was up to date and had enough workshop materials for practice. The instructors were highly experienced with loads of practical and relevant knowledge. They were very open minded and had great answers to all the questions that I brought with me. Class size was small enough for the instructor to have time and attention for trainee. StayAhead is a place I would choose over and over again.
