Course Reviews

I found the SQL course I attended very informative. Moreover, the course literature is detailed and easy to follow with useful examples provided. The lecturer for the 3 days, was very knowledgeable about the subject matter and happy to provide additional support when required.

Steven - Finance - July 2018


Remote connection worked well. Supportive staff to guide through the process. The course was well structured and paced. With good balance between theory working back into practical examples.

Howard - Utilities - May 2018

More Course Reviews....

I thought the trainer delivered the course in sizeable chunks so delegates did not feel overwhelmed. The course literature is very handy to be able to take away and put into practice back in the office. Would recommend StayAhead to anyone looking for IT training courses.

Jenny - Service Desk Analyst - Housing Association / Managed - December 2017


This course was really interesting and challenging - especially since I have no previous experience of using SQL. The instructor was very patient, answered all of my stupid questions and made even the most complex parts straight forward and clear. The training materials were also very helpful and clear - I liked having both the paper and electronic version of the core text to work from as it allowed me to compare answers and questions without flicking between pages. The facilities at the training centre were excellent and the food, coffee and snacks were amazing - really enjoyed the three days!

Carolyne - Service Desk Manager - Government - November 2017


This was a very well constructed course with a good balance of teaching and practical work. I would highly recommend stayahead.com and the trainer to others. I liked the fact the we had both online notes and hard copy notes as it meant I could flick between screens when writing scripts but I had the option to take notes if necessary.
