Course Reviews

Very good course overall. I now have further understanding about the course and feel more comfortable using the UNIX System. A big thanks to the trainer - very friendly character and a very good teacher. Would highly recommend.

Kelvin - Technical Operator - IT


Very clear instruction and guidance, have gained a good understanding of Unix. Both instruction and documentation has been great for me as I had no background knowledge of Unix or programming of any sort. This course will allow me to take on my new job role with greater competence and confidence. I would certainly recommend the course to others who might need it and will be considering more in depth courses in future.

Jonathan - Government


Superb Course, the trainer was brilliant and the details within the course easy to follow and understand.

Anthony - Control-M Admin - Broadcasting/TV/Film/Music


More Course Reviews....

Really enjoyed the course which was quite a surprise as I tend to shy away from "technical" courses. The trainer was very knowledgeable and approachable for the whole 3 days and explained things in a way that was fairly easy to understand.

Karen - Business Systems Analyst - Utilities


This has been a good grounding of UNIX, didn't know a lot before. I have now gained a good grounding to go a way and put in to practice what I have learnt.

Brian - Computer Analyst - Broadcasting/TV/Film/Music


Excellent course content and delivery which also incorporated and allowed time for q and a sessions which were extremely valuable. Facilities and host's Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the course visit. Thank you
