Course Reviews

Nice and easy to understand content, instructions were clear and questions were fully answered.

Liam - Junior Oracle system specialist - July 2021


I found the course very informative and the content was great for my level of experience in IT and helped give a better understanding of the Solaris I use in day to day work. The tutor was great and if anything needed explained he would not hesitate to sit and go through it with me which was a great help - and he didn't just give an answer he would explain WHY the resolution/solution was as it was and how we get to that outcome.

Stuart - Service Desk Analyst - Finance


Course was well presented and I am now confident of carrying out basic UNIX commands.

Christopher - Release Analyst - Government


I am new to Unix and found this a very useful course to start me off.

Steve - Communications


The course was excellent. Mark, the Course Instructor was very, very good. He explained everything exceptionally well, his style made the course interesting and his knowledge on Solaris/Linux is excellent. He took time to answer any questions put to him and explained everything thoroughly and very clearly. I would definitely recommend my work colleagues to attend this course.
