Course Reviews

Another well-paced, conducive course delivered by StayAhead. As always, the lecturer's wisdom surpassed the scope of the manual, providing additional challenges to reinforce comprehension of PHP programming. The trainer was attentive and gave one-to-one support as and when required. Thank you.

Having previously undertaken a similar course in the past I expected this course to not be especially beneficial, however this was not the case at all. I have garnered some very useful new skills and knowledge. The trainer's subject knowledge and delivery are a credit to himself and Stayahead. I was constantly engaged and rarely found myself requiring a repeat of the coursework but when needed he was more than helpful in explaining where I was struggling.
