Course Reviews

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


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.
