Course Reviews

Technical course content was excellent and just what I required regards procedures, functions and packages, so the exercises were very useful and learning the syntax and formats and commands. Plenty of time was allocated for practical exercises and writing code which I would encourage on future courses. The theory was much needed also and improved my understanding of PL/SQL I have already seen in daily tasks. The trainer was very knowledgeable and took time to explain sections as required and answers to any questions. The folder will be very beneficial in practicing back at work to consolidate these Oracle skills.

Andrew - Application Support Manager - Postal/Distribution - February 2018


Fantastic trainer, very well informed, able to answer all of the question I had. Every part of the course well explained with examples, which made it easy to follow the instructions from practical tasks we had. I would recommend that course without any hesitation.

Kamila - TRAINEE ORACLE DEVELOPER - IT - September 2017


The lecturer, is clearly extremely knowledgeable and he is able to reduce ostensibly complex concepts to easy to understand summaries which made this course enjoyable and easy to understand. Recommended.

Course was ideal for my requirements and pitched at the right level. Instructor focussed on main areas and frequently looked for contexts relevant to the delegates. Time was made available to each delegate to help with tutorial exercises, meaning I felt that I had successfully applied learning to all relevant topics.

James - Developer - Finance


I learned everything I had set out to learn through the PL/SQL course and more, with extra examples and practical situations. I felt that the balance of theory to practical was spot-on, and would definitely recommend the course.

Sean - Graduate Software Developer - Finance


Excellent lecturer, extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful!
