Course Reviews

Really good course. Wish I had booked for the database part of the course as I felt like I really learnt a lot in PHP.

Andrea - Digital Development - IT - September 2018


Another well-paced, conducive course delivered by StayAhead. As always, the lecturer's wisdom surpassed the scope of the manual, providing additional challenges to reinforce comprehension of PHP programming. The trainer was attentive and gave one-to-one support as and when required. Thank you.
