Course Reviews

Excellent trainer, whose knowledge was vast and he was fully engaging throughout the whole course. He constantly checked my understanding of what he was teaching and was willing to make any clarifications. The course notes were very good and will be a useful resource allowing me to revisit them when needed. Another very good Stayahead course, well done and thank you.

Peter - Transport - April 2019


This course answered some of the gaps in knowledge and reasons for why things work the way they do. Definitely helpful and relevant for my line of work. Instructor willing to spend time with individuals if needed.

Alan - Infrastructure Engineer - Government - February 2019


Excellent course run efficiently and everything I wanted to learn and takeaway was achieved and more. I have attended several Redhat courses down the years and this was by far the best trainer I have had the pleasure of learning with. I will recommend to colleagues and friends in the city. The trainer makes the complex course subject matter easy to take in. Brilliant instructor! Well done and happy Christmas and wonderful new year. Kind regards Pat

More Course Reviews....

The pace of the course was absolutely perfect. The trainer ran through the documentation and presented the questions, examples and answers perfectly. What he does not know about Red Hat Linux isn't worth knowing. I must admit this is the first time I have been on an instructor led course in a long time and found it invaluable. So that I can now put what I have learned into practise. Also being an virtual participant it allowed me to have the course presentation on one screen, the instructions on another and then my VNC / Telnet sessions, and my own notes on another. Thanks

Jason - Wintel Project Engineer - August 2018


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


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.
