Mark is an excellent presenter and tutor. Very skilled and patient. A genuine pleasure to deal with during this course.

Mark knows his stuff and has a good technique for breaking up work and reciting the content so that it is absorbable.

Really enjoyed this 5 day course. The trainer was very friendly and very knowledgeable, and he guided me expertly from a very basic understanding of Linux and Bash to a full working knowledge of many commands and scripting practices. I thoroughly enjoyed my time this week and will be taking my new skills back to my company with high praise.

This is one of the best courses I have been on so far. The instructor was very patient and knew the content well and didn't put any pressure for the work to be done. There wasn't a hurry and we covered a lot of material in a practical and memorable way however there was too much content to cover in the amount of time we had.
Haider - Research - January 2020
The trainer has been an exceptional tutor and has been very supportive throughout the whole week. He has provided me with all the course detail with help along the way to areas I have potentially struggled with. Not only this, but he has also at times provided some extra knowledge to expand my learning which is greatly appreciated.
