    Course Reviews

    Trainer was exceptional, clear and explained things really well. Had some great analogies that helped explain more difficult subjects.

    Rob - IT - September 2019


    The course was run at a perfect pace and the trainer was brilliant, the best training course tutor I've had so this made the course very interesting and engaging, thank you so much.

    Jason - Application Solution Configurer - Utilities - December 2018


    Very good introductory course to Linux. I came with little knowledge of Linux and now feel a lot comfortable and at home when using this OS. Excellent learning facility.

    More Course Reviews....

    Joined this course with no prior experience but a few trials on code academy. The trainer made the class fun and easy to follow. It is a lot of information to take in but it doesn't take long to get comfortable with. As the trainer said, the key is to practice, and this I intend on doing! Thank you very much!

    Reena - content protection manager - IT


    The training was very good, I will be using some of what I learnt in my job role which will enable me to progress further. The trainer was also very helpful, answering any questions we had and explained everything.

    Stephen - Technical Analyst - Retail / Hire


    Was a good few days of training. Came here with not much knowledge on Linux but am now leaving with a solid understanding that I can take back and apply to my job. The trainer was a good teacher and the course itself was taught at a nice pace.
