Course Reviews

As the only participant on the course, Kevin made the effort to understand what kind of scripts I was developing within my role and was able to tailor the course slightly to my specific needs, which made for a very positive learning experience

William - SQL developer - Defence - October 2019


Being able to attend the Oracle SQL training course in the virtual classroom was great and definitely something I would recommend to anyone thinking of signing up for a StayAhead course but who are unable to attend in person.

Alexa - Scientist - Government - July 2019


A very professionally instructed course by a very knowledgeable and experienced instructor.

David - EAM Air RW7 - Defence - May 2019


More Course Reviews....

Due to business reasons it came to light that I would have to learn SQL Oracle. I came onto this course with no idea how SQL or Oracle worked and I am coming away with a vast knowledge on both. I am more than pleased with how this course went. I have been provided with documents that I can take away with me to continue studying at home. My trainer has an amazing knowledge of both Oracle and SQL and made me feel very comfortable in the classroom. I would highly recommend this course to both a beginner and someone who already has experience with SQL.

Eilidh - Engineering System Co-ordinator - Manufacturing - April 2019


Excellent SQL fundamentals course. Rounded out the experience I had gained in house on certain aspects of SQL to provide a firm foundation for my future development.

Neil - Business Analyst - Utilities


Instructor is friendly, explains things well and moves at a great pace. Content of booklets is great too. 10/10.
