Instructor very good, course was well structured and achieved what it set out to do.

Charlie - Application Developer - Professional Services


Really well paced training course for both beginners and more experienced SQL users. Extra challenges were set for those who finished exercises early, which was really great for solidifying knowledge. Really great course.

Jonathan - Application Support Analyst - IT


The tutor was great and very knowledgeable. Course was at a great pace, and he was always willing to fully elaborate on anything that may have been slightly unclear. Very good - would recommend.
