Course Reviews

I found the course very informative and the content was great for my level of experience in IT and helped give a better understanding of the Solaris I use in day to day work. The tutor was great and if anything needed explained he would not hesitate to sit and go through it with me which was a great help - and he didn't just give an answer he would explain WHY the resolution/solution was as it was and how we get to that outcome.

Course was well presented and I am now confident of carrying out basic UNIX commands.

Christopher - Release Analyst - Government


I am new to Unix and found this a very useful course to start me off.

More Course Reviews....

The course was excellent. Mark, the Course Instructor was very, very good. He explained everything exceptionally well, his style made the course interesting and his knowledge on Solaris/Linux is excellent. He took time to answer any questions put to him and explained everything thoroughly and very clearly. I would definitely recommend my work colleagues to attend this course.
