The course content was adapted well to suit my current knowledge and capabilities. Specific topics I requested were covered well.


Steven Sirman - Corus Group

The trainer is a great trainer and has very professional tone. I would definitely like to attend a SQL Advanced course in the near future which is hosted by the same trainer.


Mitul. P. Parmar - Cancer Research UK

Having a 1-1 training course was very effective, it meant I was less intimidated as I could stop the trainer to ask questions where I may otherwise have been reluctant to ask. The trainer was very good at explaining everything that I needed to know and took the time to make sure going back where needed to re explain when I got stuck.The training was very clear and concise and tailored very well to my own individual needs.The training has covered all the points it needed too. — Robert Craft

This course was truly fantastic, spot-on! It covers the basics but also details of SQL language. I will definitely recommended this course to my colleagues. There simply isn't another course out there that would give you so much in such a short period of time, great value for money. A must for any beginner or intermediate SQL user!
