Course Reviews

Tony provided an excellent service.

Eddie - IT Admin - Retail / Hire


The trainer made the course very easy to learn. Managed to get through a lot of literature, very quickly, without it being rushed either. Practical examples helped with the learning. The course was everything I would have wanted it to be.

Mike - Lead Engineer - Communications


All the basics taught extremely well. Having previous knowledge of Linux, it was great to tie it all together which makes the Linux environment more easily understandable and configurable.

Alex - IT Service Operations Enginner - Insurance


More Course Reviews....

Informative course for someone like me, who has had no experience of Linux at all. The trainer explained things well, and was happy to help if we had any questions.

Richard - Insurance


One of the most useful training courses I have attended. Covered a lot of very relevant material that we would use on a daily basis. Well paced and easy to follow, the interactive labs along with Duncan's instruction kept the course interesting and entertaining. I would recommend this course to all of my colleagues.

David - Secure Operations Engineer


Great course, filled in a lots of blanks and will definitely help me in my current role. Duncan was extremely professional and his knowledge of Linux was outstanding, he really helped me to understand the course and also helped with some customer specific questions I had.
