Course Reviews

Excellent Introduction consolidated learning well with enough practice examples

Ronan - Auditor - Government


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


I was really impressed with how much we managed to achieve in one day. I now feel confident to put some of the learnings into practice and feel that it will really help in my day-to-day role. Really impressed with the instructor, all concepts were explained in a very clear manner and I really enjoyed the day.

Janine - CRM Assistant - Retail / Hire


The material was well delivered and the instructor cross referenced between the various SQL platforms. Made a big difference towards my understanding of how to effectively manage data and queries to deliver more accurate reports.

Keith - Service Delivery Manager - Government


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


Absolutely brilliant, the SQL training was very comprehensive, the instructor very friendly and all the questions were answered(clearly knows what he is talking about), I am walking out with knowledge I can directly apply to my work process.
