Course Reviews

Brilliant course, well prepared, well executed. Great Lecturer.

Graham - Developer - Insurance - June 2017


Course content coherent with what expected. Good balance between practical exercises and visual demonstrations. Good material to follow-up "offline".

Matteo - Analyst - Communications - March 2017


It was a very relevant course content for my job, and the instructor had good knowledge of APEX 5. The location and classroom where nice.

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.
