Course Reviews

I really enjoyed the course, being a complete beginner it gave me confidence to take it back to the workplace. It was explained in a manner that I could understand and grasp.

Joanne - Analytic Support - Government - September 2019


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 course handbook was extremely useful and I will certainly be referring back to it when using SQL for work. Would certainly consider doing the follow on advanced TSQL course.

Milo - Market Analyst - Utilities - January 2019


Course was well paced, catered for a varying range of abilities. I never found myself bored or uninterested.

Samuel - Sales Office Manager - January 2019


More Course Reviews....

The trainer was excellent. He provided greater insight into the different SQL's and what queries and functions would be appropriate to each system. He answered questions very greater ease unlike some courses. He showed other approaches in dealing with issues on SQL. In all, the trainer's approach to this course was excellent.

David - Market Analyst - Utilities - October 2018


Well structured and well paced. Engaging instructor with a good balance of practical work and theory.
