The trainer was extremely helpful, very pleasant atmosphere and an overall positive experience.

Kamila - Trainee Oracle Developer - IT


Course content was well explained and we were given plenty of time to work on practical examples. All examples were explained in detail so even if I struggled with completing the exercises on first reading, subsequent explanation meant I understood the logic behind the example and could use it going forward. Workbook contains a great deal of content and useful references to practice what we learned going forward. Thank you for a great course!

Abbi - Production Support 1st Line Analyst - Insurance


Really enjoyed this course and feel that I've learned everything. I've taken away the hand outs and course material and will continue and definitely feel that I can utilize the skills I've been taught in day-to-day roll. Excellent instructor who explained everything really clearly, gave us the time and attention we needed to get a good all round knowledge of the course. Thanks to the trainer and StayAhead!
