Wonderful instructor, very knowledgeable and kept me interested and motivated through out the course. Looking forward to taking another course with Stay Ahead.

Enjoyed the course. Brought some PERL code from work. Now can at least read and understand it. Thank you!

Andrew - Data Management Analyst - Marketing


A well planned training programme. Despite being my first insight into PERL Programming, I was able to pick things up relatively quickly thanks to the teaching techniques & course materials provided. I would thoroughly recommend StayAhead Training.
