Course Reviews

Great lecturer, talked everything through perfectly and helped me through the points I didn't get straight away quickly. Just in a one session I feel like my understanding of SQL has been significantly increased. Thank you very much.

George - Systems and Projects Developer - February 2019


Very good practical course - learning through practical application and discussion.

Darren - Band B - Government - August 2018


Overall, the course was very good and well paced I came looking for a bit more background knowledge in SQL databases and queries; I certainly achieved that aim, as well as finding the learning material stimulating and interesting.

Loved the practical element, too often you go to these things and you go away not actually being able to do anything. Very calm and thoughtful instructor. Thank you.

Nick - Data Analyst - Government


The course was at the ideal pace for someone who had little experience with SQL - there was nothing overloading about the course and I left with a lot more confidence in using SQL Developer.
