Course Reviews

This course was really interesting and challenging - especially since I have no previous experience of using SQL. The instructor was very patient, answered all of my stupid questions and made even the most complex parts straight forward and clear. The training materials were also very helpful and clear - I liked having both the paper and electronic version of the core text to work from as it allowed me to compare answers and questions without flicking between pages. The facilities at the training centre were excellent and the food, coffee and snacks were amazing - really enjoyed the three days!

Carolyne - Service Desk Manager - Government - November 2017


This was a very well constructed course with a good balance of teaching and practical work. I would highly recommend stayahead.com and the trainer to others. I liked the fact the we had both online notes and hard copy notes as it meant I could flick between screens when writing scripts but I had the option to take notes if necessary.

Mel - Management Information Analyst - Government - November 2017


Great tutor. The pace was just right and lots of time to carry out practical exercises to validate our understanding of the learning's. Would recommend the workshop to anyone who is looking to learn more on SQL.

Very well presented course, the instructor made it very interactive throughout.

Paul - Operations - Finance - September 2017


I really enjoyed the course and I know this because I didn't clock watch and the days passed quickly. I have learnt a lot and that will be useful when I return to work but, as expect, not all the course content was relevant to me but I knew that before attending. The trainer was very knowledgeable in the subject and used a lot of meaningful examples. Course notes and examples were excellent. Thank you.

Nicky - Senior Cost Engineer - Defence - August 2017


The course was very useful and I was able to work at a steady pace. The practical was very good and helped me remember and practice subjects we have covered. Highly recommended.
