Course Reviews

The trainer knows the material in depth and explains it in a clear manner making it easy to understand/follow. The course has helped me clear up a number of grey areas and I come away knowing a lot more then when I arrived…

Daniel - IT - April 2018


This course has been really helpful to improve on my fundamentals and get a deeper understanding on few LVM concepts. The practicals on the ACL's and the SELinux chapters also helped to understand these concepts better. The instructor goes through the course in a very comprehensive manner which helps the trainee to get his concepts clarified.

Sourav - Infrastructure Analyst - Utilities - July 2017


Very good course, pacing was right and frequent practical exercises helped to reinforce taught material.

This is one of the best course I've been on. It tailors for those with prior knowledge as well as those with none and yet remains relevant for both types. The instructor delivered clearly and concisely, at an appropriate pace and was conscientious in his delivery considering both physical and virtual audience. I've sharpened up on existing knowledge and taken away a lot of new, thank you. Would definitely recommend.

Simon - Systems Administrator - Communications


A very good, well paced course that adds in value to part one. Highly recommended!

Jonathan - IT Technical Lead - Finance

I compared courses in Belgium to the one offered by StayAhead, and SA definitely had my preference. I really liked the flexibility of the lecturer concerning extra exercises that had a bit more challenge to them than written down in the course itself.
