Musie was very articulate knew his subject well, you got the feeling he really cared about you wanting to learn, he kept asking questions to make sure we understand what we are learning, he was passionate about coding and very sincere in his approach, overall a good teacher, only negative I would say is sometimes the explanations were too long but overall top marks.
Shazaul - IT Manager - Real Estate - July 2021
With regards to the course, it was an excellent "Jumpstart" in to the world of AIX for the Solaris/Linux Administrator. The course was well paced and the subjects covered were perfect for those moving in to the world of AIX Administration for established systems. The instructor, Mark Holloway, was excellent, very knowledgeable, helpful and willing to explore the subjects to a pace suited to your abilities. I could not of wished for a better instructor. I would recommend this course to anyone with a firm understanding of Solaris, HPUX or Linux who requires a good grounding in to the differences between them and IBM AIX. Thank you.
Simon - Unix Technical Support Specialist - July 2021

Apilan - Data Analyst - June 2021
As usual Stuart has covered the subject in excellent way.. It is challenging but he is very helpful and will provide more info and help when needed. I just wish I had been able to record every minute of this course as it is not trial by PowerPoint or pdf... My only comment as always is why such weird font in PDF for code examples. I have attended many of Stuarts courses and others and He is the best ;-)
Ashley - Senior Software Engineer (and Degree App - June 2021
Overall Tarn was an excellent tutor, I got a lot out of the course

Working in Application Support has given a better understanding on how the system is setup. John gave a very good presentation in all areas.
Edmund - Delivery Lead - June 2021
Stuart is a fantastic teacher. He first laid the groundwork and then built on this throughout the course. By the end, we were able to create secure, functioning APIs in SpringBoot. I think the key thing for me was Stuart's ability to explain concepts; I believe I have gained an understanding of Spring that I will be able to use for years to come.

Stuart has an excellent teaching style. Managing to get through a large amount of material without it ever feeling overwhelming or stressful.

Ray - Lead Developer - Academic - February 2021
Second time I've had a course run by Kevin and to be honest I cant fault them. He always goes into depth and doesn't mind explaining a problem in detail. He accommodates for everything you may need and gets across as much detail as possible in a way in which you can understand it and take it in. Cant recommend him enough!
Ryan - February 2021
Mark is a brilliant instructor and where further information was needed for understanding he made time to get that further understanding across.

Patrick - Software Test Apprentice - January 2021
The trainer was amazing, he was in depth with his explanations and showed confidence with what he said as well as showing he had a lot of experience.

Peter - Support Analysis - December 2020
Alan was an amazing teacher, he used as much relevant information as he possibly could. He was down to earth and fitted everything around my needs.

Very good course. I already had a good understanding of the topics covered in the first 2 days but it was good to go over and revisit it. Very good trainer and kept us engaged especially considering the change to the usual training environment! Provided a lot of support and help when needed. Thank you! One thing I found it easier to use my own machine (with IntelliJ) rather than the Remote Desktop and in future I would get a second screen.

Asif - Networks & Security Infrastructure Analy - Housing Association / Managed - October 2020
Mark was very knowledgeable and although the course was taught at a fair pace he made sure we all understood the logic of the various sections before moving on. This was my first experience of taking a course remotely and the differences between this and classroom learning were not as great as I'd feared. All in all a useful course, and well taught and administered.

Craig - Senior Software Engineer - October 2020
Another great course, massively improved my knowledge on React from this.
Edward - Software Developer - October 2020
Well done given the ongoing covid-19 situation. Surprised at how few technical challenges it was compared to what is normal these days.

Samuel - Software Engineer - October 2020
The course provided a good understanding of the fundamentals in Python. I didn't really know were to start before, but after this course it is more clear to me how I can take advantage of Python in some of my work. I'm looking forward to try this!
Siv Elisabeth - Analytics Consultant - October 2020
The course was excellent and paced well. As a student who is completely new to ruby and rails my only request would be a more gradual approach to the rails section similar to what was done during the ruby section.
Adam - September 2020
Excellent course and delivery. Well placed with an appropriate level of detail for the mix of experience amongst delegates. Learned a lot and now understand far better why I have been writing some of the JS I have, and more importantly how to do it better next time.

Sondre - Analytics Consultant - September 2020
Overall a very good course. Learned a lot in 3 days. Trainer was great at explaining the content.

Alexander - SDET - August 2020
Craig - Senior Software Engineer - August 2020
The trainer went at a very good pace and kept asking questions to keep people engaged. The trainer was enthusiastic throughout despite the relative difficulty of the class being online. I'd recommend this course for anyone who wants to get a basic understanding of SQL.

Liam - Developer / Analyst - August 2020
Sat Java Programming 1 with Stuart as a refresher. This led onto this course Java Programming 2. The course taught me new material which was of great benefit and i would highly recommend Stuart as the lecturer and the material StayAhead offers to other businesses.
Richard - developer - August 2020
I've had Stuart for two Java courses now. Course material is delivered brilliantly in an interesting way with Stuart being excellent to answer further questions people have on the course material.

Stuart, as with the Java 1 course, was excellent. Pace was perfect and he explained everything in a clear manner. Feedback on exercises was also really useful!
Ben - Software Development Engineer in Test - July 2020
Stuart was an excellent trainer for this program. He adapted the course to suit attendants and covered things beyond the scope of the course where asked and in a detailed manner. Couldn't have asked for more from him! Would definitely recommend this course and trainer.
Ben - Software Development Engineer in Test - July 2020
Great course well delivered. Stuart had a very good practical hands on style to training. In a very short time we went through the basics of Java programming into several quite detailed scenarios. Clearly had a deep background knowledge and kept us all engaged over many days of training, which is not easy.
David - Finance - July 2020
The pace of the course was great. Even when it was clear that we might finish the set course material early the instructor did not try and drag it out at a pace that would not have matched the group. Instead, we were asked for areas of interest we might like to go over at the end if the pace continued, this was very helpful
Dearbhla - Software Engineer - July 2020
Emma - July 2020
Gareth - Applications Support 3rd line - July 2020
Very informative course taught by an excellent and experienced instructor.
Harry - Trainee Software Developer - July 2020
Thoroughly enjoyed the JAVA 1 training. Stuart presented and explained java concepts to a very high standard and made this course very beneficial. the style was excellent no powerpoints were used which is a huge positive as i believe learning code from an IDE and following code in this manner results in a better way of learning and understanding. Thank you for the successful training course highly recommend.
James - MSC Software Engineer - July 2020
Course duration was shortened from 9 days to 6 due so the pace was faster which made it slightly harder to keep up and understand however, Stuart was an excellent teacher, extremely thorough with his explanations and really tried to paint the entire picture so you could appreciate what the code was doing, he was also always available via email for further help. He was very friendly and told some great story's/jokes along the way which made the course even better. I really enjoyed my time on the course and just wish it was longer.
Joe - Apprentice Junior software developer - July 2020
Excellent instructor and was able to explain clearly while pacing the content perfectly. Great job.
Kadmin - July 2020
Kevin is a great instructor and his teaching style was really good with appropriate use of examples. Was definitely a great experience.

Nathan - IT Developer - July 2020
I thoroughly enjoyed Stuart's teaching style and personality. He demonstrated concepts with simple practical examples which helped me a lot. I personally benefited from the hands on element because I got an insight into how Java devs use tooling such as Eclipse. I have really go a lot from Stuart's teaching. I found the Spring Course was a bit too fast for me, but that was because Stuart had been asked by BGL to condense a four day course into two days.
Nick - Snr Developer (non-Java/Spring) - Finance - July 2020
Would like to say a huge thank you to Stuart. Very well delivered, the concepts and understandings were covered well and were explained with a clear and thorough understanding of the course material. Feedback was always given and was very thorough. Thanks!

John - SAP Basis Analyst - June 2020
John is a great instructor who tailored the course well to meet our requirements
Jon - SAP systems Analyst - June 2020
Thank you Stuart, it was a really well-delivered course. Some of it was a bit above my level, but I'm not a full-time programmer, so I expected that! I learnt enough to help me understand more about what's possible with Java, and how it can be used. I really liked your training style, and it worked great over Zoom. Will definitely use Stayahead in the future.

I was expecting a 5-day SysAdmin course, but due to the rest of the attendees being new to Linux, the course had to be adjusted quite significantly. Overall, the instructor did an excellent job, he tailored the course for the majority of the class. I would personally like to thank the instructor, John L, he was brilliant and very helpful. He was knowledgeable and explained the concepts really well.

Steve - Smart Meter Network Engineer - Communications - April 2020

Raymond - Database Administrator - Finance - February 2020
The large amount of time dedicated to installation and configuration was really beneficial as I am new to Postgres and didn't want to miss out on any important features, particularly in relation to web app security surrounding users. Any questions I had were answered by the instructor in full giving me a good idea on how to apply the course material to my own environment at work. I am going to recommend Stay Ahead MySQL training for other developers in my team as they have had MySQL courses cancelled by (other supplier) twice now and the quality of the courses are equally as comprehensive at Stay Ahead.

Joe - SRE - Broadcasting/TV/Film/Music - December 2019
The course far exceeded my expectations, the level of content was perfectly targeted for someone like myself who has experience in Python, but is self taught. The subjects were covered thoroughly and I learnt so many new techniques, with the exercises being particularly useful for constantly testing the knowledge I had gained during the course. From the basic data types to more complex regular expressions, the trainer thoroughly explained the principles and made everything very clear and easy to understand, as well as explaining any problems I had and working through them. He made the course extremely enjoyable and was clearly extremely well versed in the language.
Josh - Test Engineer - Transport - December 2019
Trainer was exceptionally knowledgeable and was more than happy to run through exercises on a one-to-one basis if we encountered any difficulties. Thoroughly enjoyed the course and would highly recommend.

Very useful course explaining new features for use within Oracle PL/SQL for Interfaces, programming standards and large data volumes. The sections exploring many techniques for Pl/SQL performance tuning, profiling, tracing, best practices and code analysis will be very useful in my role in support to assist trouble-shooting performance issues in our PL/SQL code and processes used in the Production systems. new techniques for development were also discussed. The instruction was good and with practice where required and plenty of discussion for the real world application. Would recommend this course for Advanced Pl/SQL developers.

Luke - Broadcasting/TV/Film/Music - May 2019

Dee - April 2019
Due to business reasons it came to light that I would have to learn SQL Oracle. I came onto this course with no idea how SQL or Oracle worked and I am coming away with a vast knowledge on both. I am more than pleased with how this course went. I have been provided with documents that I can take away with me to continue studying at home. My trainer has an amazing knowledge of both Oracle and SQL and made me feel very comfortable in the classroom. I would highly recommend this course to both a beginner and someone who already has experience with SQL.

Excellent trainer, whose knowledge was vast and he was fully engaging throughout the whole course. He constantly checked my understanding of what he was teaching and was willing to make any clarifications. The course notes were very good and will be a useful resource allowing me to revisit them when needed. Another very good Stayahead course, well done and thank you.
Peter - Transport - April 2019
I felt I was comfortable working in REACT before I started this course, however, I learned a hell of a lot and it was a welcome level of toughness that kept me thinking the whole time. Perfectly paced and presented so that by the end of each day my brain was full of new information and couldn't take more in without a rest, though it was still ticking over in my mind for the rest of the night.

Very interesting and enjoyable course, a considerable step-up from the initial T-SQL course which was very welcome. Small class sizes mean there's plenty of chance for direct interaction with the lecturer who was more than helpful. The first course is really good; the advanced course is even better.

Excellent SQL fundamentals course. Rounded out the experience I had gained in house on certain aspects of SQL to provide a firm foundation for my future development.

The instructor was very knowledgeable and was more than happy to go into more detail on any of the courses topics - even exposing us to some more advanced material at the end.

The trainer was on topic at all times, no time wasted and pace was perfect.

Excellent training, very clear and personable trainer.
Andrew - IT Infrastructure Engineer - Government - November 2018
The trainer was exceptionally patient. He took the time to listen to any questions I had, and gave comprehensive, understandable answers.

Krzysztof - IT Engineer - IT - November 2018

This course is ideal for someone new to Linux, I had no previous experience and found this easy to follow and to complete the labs after each section.

Gurvinder - Tech Lead - IT - September 2018
I thoroughly enjoy the Advanced SQL course and learnt a lot in the duration. The most interesting parts was learning about Oracle + REGEX and how we can use that to identify patterns. I will now incorporate that with my day to day usage. The trainer provided clear examples and explained sections very well, where we did not understand he would clarify further.
James - Insurance - September 2018
Despite last minute issues, Stayahead managed to deliver course online. Much appreciated. Course was very relevant and the trainer gave good examples of circumstances where applications processes could be applied.

George - Finance - August 2018
The pace of the course was absolutely perfect. The trainer ran through the documentation and presented the questions, examples and answers perfectly. What he does not know about Red Hat Linux isn't worth knowing. I must admit this is the first time I have been on an instructor led course in a long time and found it invaluable. So that I can now put what I have learned into practise. Also being an virtual participant it allowed me to have the course presentation on one screen, the instructions on another and then my VNC / Telnet sessions, and my own notes on another. Thanks
Jason - Wintel Project Engineer - August 2018
Perfect pace for the course, I was lucky enough to be in a small class which meant I could ask all the questions that I liked and we went into further detail where required, or just because it was interesting! I will want to do a follow on course - even more so now that I've had the positive experience.
Jennifer - Operational Performance Manager - Finance - August 2018
The course in general was well organised and the material provided was very good. The trainer was really helpful and explained the course all throughout with the same enthusiasm as the first day. He really took a interest in our background and gave us hints and tips on how could we implement things in our company code.
Jini - Software Programmer - August 2018
The trainer managed to fit a lot of content in a short time with useful, practical examples that grew throughout the two days into a genuinely useful resource to consolidate the knowledge back in the office. A highly recommended course.

Great training course, and an excellent lecturer. The course was well structured, and well paced. The documentation was well written, structured and explain in good detail the theory and the steps behind the commands.

I would be happy to recommend this course.
Muraz - Postal/Distribution - August 2018
An excellent very well taught course. I found the structure and the balance between presenting and practical work to be just right and I believe I have learnt more from the course than I thought I would at the beginning. I believe that doing practical exercises on the course are most important to testing whether you understand what has been presented.
Phil - Database Developer - Environmental - August 2018
Very good introductory course to Linux. I came with little knowledge of Linux and now feel a lot comfortable and at home when using this OS. Excellent learning facility.
Solomon - Software Contractor - Manufacturing - August 2018
Fantastic RedHat training. I have fully achieved the objective of the course and also very happy with the entire training. The instructor is one of the best I have come across.

The course was comprehensive anyway but the instructor made an effort to add extra detail as he was presenting.

Very impressed, thanks!!!
David - Unix Administrator - July 2018
An excellent course that covers a lot in a week. It reaffirmed some stuff I thought I knew, which is great, but also taught me lots I didn't know. I feel a lot more confident with the stuff this course covers than I did a week ago! Excellent instructor who keeps the subject from becoming dry and boring. Well recommended as your first steps to getting into Java.
Gavin - Software Test Engineer - Insurance - July 2018
Very good introduction to Spring for beginners and those who have some practical experience. Very good practical tips for all the topics covered.
Louis - Software Engineer - Finance - July 2018
Joined this course with no prior experience but a few trials on code academy. The trainer made the class fun and easy to follow.

Great Instructor. Clear, patient, and really helpful.
Kein-Wai - Analyst Developer - Communications - June 2018
I compared courses in Belgium to the one offered by StayAhead, and SA definitely had my preference. I really liked the flexibility of the lecturer concerning extra exercises that had a bit more challenge to them than written down in the course itself.
Nicola - Software Developer - Postal/Distribution - June 2018
Python Trainings (1&2) were excellent and content was explained very well. OOP concept and embedding them in the workshops adds value. Instructors were extremely accommodative and took the time to explain very well.

Ryan - DBA - Academic - April 2018
I thought this was a really well placed course and the instructor was excellent.
Will - Developer - Government - April 2018

Charlie - Communications - March 2018
Really worth while experience and has helped build on my Oracle DBA knowledge.

I enjoyed my training with StayAhead. The training centre was easy to find and reach. Very close to a bus stop and underground station. The course content was up to date and had enough workshop materials for practice. The instructors were highly experienced with loads of practical and relevant knowledge. They were very open minded and had great answers to all the questions that I brought with me. Class size was small enough for the instructor to have time and attention for trainee. StayAhead is a place I would choose over and over again.

An excellent teacher and extremely knowledgeable, approachable and adaptive.

Simone - Programme Support Officer - NHS - March 2018
Thank you, the course was brilliant. All questions answered, a lot of practical exercises and really good attention to details. I enjoyed it very much.

Great course. Great and bubbly staff! I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanted to know more about HP-UX or just computer systems in general. Thank you!
Alan - Senior Bathymetric Scientist - Environmental - February 2018
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
Definitely recommend this to any colleagues starting out on Data Analysis.

David - Technical Analyst - Retail / Hire - January 2018
A fantastic course which has opened my eyes to world of SQL. I came here as a complete novice to the subject but feel that I can now go and implement what I've learnt into practice.
David - Email Marketing Manager - Retail / Hire - January 2018
Excellent Lecturer, very steady pace with excellent explanations. Without this course It would have taken months to be at the same level after 5 days.
James - Senior Field Engineer - IT - January 2018
I found the initial part of the course a good way of consolidating what I already knew and I learnt some useful functions that I didn't realise were available to me. The last couple of days on the course has been completely new content for me which I thoroughly enjoyed learning. I can't wait to start using these new skills in my day to day work. Thanks to the trainer for making the course so enjoyable and also going out of his way to find out more advanced bits like 'connect by prior'. I would recommend this course to those that have a brief understanding of SQL but want to get more confident in applying it.
Katie - Senior Business Intelligence Analyst - Academic - January 2018
I've really enjoyed the course, it has had me interested from the start to finish and has improved my knowledge in a lot of areas regarding Oracle. I now feel a lot more confident and I am looking forward to putting the training/knowledge into action.
Mark - Manufacturing - January 2018
I really enjoyed the course. I became very familiar with SUSE as the week progress. The trainer was perhaps the most knowledgeable instructor of any course I have taken. There was not one question that his response was I don't know. When ever we needed help, he resolved quickly, sometimes without even having to look at the screen. As opposed to personality, he made is very easy to take this course, he was fun, quick witted, and easy to talk with. By far my favourite instructor.
Marlon - Environmental - January 2018
Lots learned from the course as I came here with very limited Linux knowledge, the pace and content were fantastic and I will be taking this new knowledge away with me and implementing as required in the work environment. Fantastic tutor that makes you feel at ease with the subject.

I thought the trainer delivered the course in sizeable chunks so delegates did not feel overwhelmed. The course literature is very handy to be able to take away and put into practice back in the office. Would recommend StayAhead to anyone looking for IT training courses.
Jenny - Service Desk Analyst - Housing Association / Managed - December 2017
That was an excellent course and a very good teacher. I enjoyed the whole content explained by the trainer.

Fantastic course, brilliant teacher. Cannot fault anything. Thank you
Callum - IT - November 2017
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
Excellent delivered course with new skills learnt especially related to awk and sed
David - Service Delivery Manager - Manufacturing - November 2017
I was very impressed with the course provided/instructed by StayAhead. The trainer was very knowledgeable on the subject, happy to bend the course to meet the needs of the delegates (both in terms of content and timing) and couldn't have done more to help.
Dean - Full Stack Developer - Insurance - November 2017
This is the second course I have done with StayAhead and I can't recommend it highly enough. The trainer has been completely flexible about the course both in terms of content and timings and has strived to make sure we get the most out of the course to take back to our jobs.
Dean - Insurance - November 2017
Was a good few days of training. Came here with not much knowledge on Linux but am now leaving with a solid understanding that I can take back and apply to my job. The trainer was a good teacher and the course itself was taught at a nice pace.
Elliot - Communications - November 2017
Really enjoyed the course and has given me a basic understanding of SQL and a good foundation to build knowledge on.
Jessica - Lead Pricing Analyst - Insurance - November 2017
Very good introduction to Java and object oriented programming in general. Our group was already familiar with the basics of Java. The trainer did very well to adapt the content of the course to our level, digging deeper into some topics and going beyond the scope of the course at times. He even went as far as creating extra material after hours, to tailor the course to our specific needs. He read the group well and maintained a good pace throughout the course. I especially liked the fact that no PowerPoint presentations were involved. This gave us the opportunity to do a lot of hands on coding, which I think is essential to the learning experience. For me personally, the guided case study could have been a bit less guided, as to make me think a bit harder about the solutions. But I wouldn't necessarily change the case study given it is meant to be an introductory course. Overall I think this was a great course. I learned a lot about the theoretical constructs of Java and have a better insight in the Java code I've already worked on. Excellent instructor, very knowledgeable about the topic, friendly and patient. Couldn't ask for more.
Johan - QA Engineer - IT - November 2017
Excellent instruction. He did a great job at targeting the content toward varying levels of ability.
Jon - SMART Performance and Optimisation Manag - Broadcasting/TV/Film/Music - November 2017
This has been by far the best course I have been on. Well organized, the manual which was sent out is so useful and something I will be using in my role. An excellent teacher and I felt the training was excellent despite the trainer having to lecture a group of people at various stages with their Linux knowledge from beginners to experts this did not affect the way I felt I was personally trained. I would recommend this course. Thanks again.
Katie - IT - November 2017
Excellent instructor who kept us interested all week and explained everything clearly. He was very patent and sociable made the course very enjoyable
Mark - November 2017
Great course and content was taught at the right pace to ensure full understanding.
Mark - Defence - November 2017
This is my second Stay Ahead course and as with the last one, I thought this to be excellent. The last course I did was in person, so was concerned the online course might not be as easy to follow; I am pleased to say this was most definitely not the case. The trainer was superb and explained the course contents extremely well. I would thoroughly recommend both the course and the instructor; hopefully I will get the opportunity to do more courses with Stay Ahead in the future.
Mark - Unix Systems Engineer - 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.

Excellent, well-run course - delivered with enthusiasm by an excellent trainer. Good facilities too.
Mike - Government - October 2017
A very well presented course delivered at an appropriate pace for those attending. The instructors knowledge was excellent and his passionate delivery kept me engaged. The course notes for me are a real winner, as I only have occasional use of Unix at work I am sure I will forget much of this week before I am due to use it again, but the way in which the course notes are presented is both logical and functional and I am sure I will use these many times in the future.
Neal - Defence - October 2017
Went from a position of zero knowledge to comfortable familiarity by the end of the course.
Patrick - DBA - IT - October 2017

Guillaume - Web & app analyst and optimisation manag - Retail / Hire - September 2017
The course was extremely helpful as it met all of my needs. Before I started this course, I had no knowledge of what Linux is or does at all. Now I can take my new findings and knowledge of the OS and apply it to my day-to-day objectives to provide support for my customers and most importantly improve the service I provide. Very knowledgeable instructor who has made me feel extremely comfortable despite having initial nerves before as I was not sure if I would be able to understand such a complex OS in such a short amount of time (one day). I will definitely recommend this course to a few of my colleagues when I return to work.
Joe - ITAM Analyst - IT - September 2017
The trainer was extremely helpful, very pleasant atmosphere and an overall positive experience.

Kris - Systems Engineer - IT - September 2017
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.
Laurence - Operations Support - Finance - September 2017

Ryan - IT - September 2017
Most pleased that the instructor went beyond the standard documentation to provide more specific/relevant material with reference to web available documentation to illustrate items in a manner that tailors the course beautifully and will benefit future work.
Steven - Technical Services Manager (Networks) - NHS - September 2017
A very enjoyable course with a very knowledgeable instructor. This is a great course for anyone dipping their toes into Linux administration. The balance between the theory and practical is perfect and allows time to digest the course material without rushing on to a new topic.

Really good course for beginners, I had zero coding or database experience before starting the course but had no problem with the practice exercises due to the clear explanation of everything taught. Would recommend to friends or colleagues. Thanks!

I really enjoyed the course and I know this because I didn't clock watch and the days passed quickly.

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
A well paced course that really teaches you the fundamentals needed to stay ahead in the industry.

Stephen - IT Technical Team Manager - NHS - October 2014
Our instructor was very knowledgeable and provided lots of extra information. She covered all the material we were provided with, we did more hands-on practice than I initially thought would be involved in this course which was a definite plus for me and a real benefit for my day-to-day job and also comparing that to a few years ago when I had training by Oracle on an earlier version of Oracle where there was minimum hands-on practice. The other benefit apart from the really comprehensive material that was provided and covered during the course of this week was the little tricks that Oracle would probably never reveal regarding licenses, what can and can't actually be used and how to find out.

Andrew - Systems Engineer - Health - March 2012
Very good informative course, the notes are excellent and the tuition was very good. It was a small class so it really allowed us to get a lot of one to one attention which is something I consider very valuable.

Very useful course - I had previously been using Linux for approx a year using basic commands - navigating file structures, editing files etc, without complete knowledge of what I was actually doing. This course has given me the knowledge I need to complete job functions more successfully.

Chris - Software Developer - January 2012
The course was extremely detailed and comprehensive. I know that I will be able to make more sense of SQL scripts at work and eventually be able to write my own. Coming from a place of knowing very little SQL (I thought I knew it), and after I've had a chance to work through the exercises again at my own pace,I will be confident enough and able to conduct SQL tasks. Thank you for your time, explanations and patience Kevin.
Cleo - BI Support Analyst - Finance - January 2012
Enjoyable course. Tony was an excellent trainer who has introduced the world of Linux to a brand new user! This will help be substancially in my work. Good mixture of Linux theory coupled with practical examples to try. This was all done in a timeframe which was flexible and relaxed.
Darren - Oracle Database Administrator - Government - January 2012
I thought Alan was very good with his adaptive training styles as some of us are less advanced in Oracle DBA work than others attending the course. I had not done any Oracle 10g or previous DBA administration previously, but his simplistic approach to training was great and he was very helpful with questions and answers. Very good training provided, thanks again for his patience.

The course was really hands-on, easy stuff was covered quickly and more time was spent on more involved topics, which you can never take for granted. The instructor was really clear, and the learning experience he provided was very interactive. It feels this was a good starting point for Java, and the general take was very practical as opposed to being theoretical.
Lippo - December 2011

Amrit - Finance - October 2011
I found the course to be very useful and the pace was ideal for me. With many years of Solaris experience the basic concepts were the same. However, the Linux chapters on the OS build, SELinux and CUPS was very useful. Ideal course for people with UNIX experience who want to start working with Red Hat Linux.

Andrew tailored the course to my specific requirements, spending more time on the areas I needed most, i.e the queries. Gave me a very good insight and understanding of the other areas of course. Thanks very much for all your help.

Very good Instructor. Obviously someone who has done this type of work for many years, and thus very knowledgable and engaging.

I started the course on Monday with very little knowledge about Java and small knowledge about programming as a whole. I leave on Friday confident that I can continue to learn more and develop applications. Greg has been a fantastic tutor and his teaching style has been great.

Ben - HFM Administrator - May 2011
Thoroughly enjoyed the course and Marian's teaching style. Relaxed atmosphere and amenable to going slightly away from course literature if appropriate to client's needs. Learned a lot from the course which will be beneficial for moving from 10g to 11g.
Etta - Oracle DBA - May 2011
Excellent course and instructor. Practicals were explained well and Andrew handled all queries very professionally and cheerfully. Really enjoyed the three days and learnt exactly what I wanted. Will keep StayAhead in mind for further courses.

I took this course to give me an introduction to PL\SQL and to find the differences to MS SQL - that I have worked with for mnay years. It met my needs extremely well.
