Course Reviews

Very good course. Instructor was knowledgeable. Easy to understand.

Kevin - Defence - November 2018


It's not very often I enjoy 5 days of training - this was the exception. It has enthused me for the subject and whetted my appetite to do Part 2 of RHEL7 Administration. The trainer covered the topic superbly and got all the delegates involved.

Martyn - Server Engineer - Manufacturing - November 2018


This course is ideal for someone new to Linux, I had no previous experience and found this easy to follow and to complete the labs after each section.

Lisa - Server Support Engineer - Utilities - October 2018


More Course Reviews....

Excellent introduction to RHEL , very well explained and demonstrated. The trainer's teaching style was very engaging, making the course more enjoyable. Information learnt has been valuable for my work and can be implemented in many ways.

Sadiqa - Transport - October 2018


Excellent course. Instructor was very knowledgeable, helpful, and approachable. Course material and lab exercises were perfect for a week introductory course.

Drew - Government - August 2018


The course was comprehensive anyway but the instructor made an effort to add extra detail as he was presenting.
