Course Reviews

Very interesting and enjoyable course, a considerable step-up from the initial T-SQL course which was very welcome. Small class sizes mean there's plenty of chance for direct interaction with the lecturer who was more than helpful. The first course is really good; the advanced course is even better.

Milo - Market Analyst - Utilities - March 2019


The trainer went above and beyond to make the course as applicable and accessible as possible.

Claire - Senior Commercial Analyst - Retail / Hire - September 2018


I thought this course was very useful. It showed me what is possible in SQL using techniques I did not know about beforehand. I feel better prepared to write SQL in the future.
