What Our Clients Think

Really enjoyed this course. It delivered exactly what I wanted out it.

Malkit Singh - Regatta Ltd

Very informative course, very useful tips on how to work with SQL Management Studio. A lot of SQL quirks explained, a lot of good examples.

Magdalena Piekarska - Veolia

Course was well adjusted to consider the business perspective - considering commonly needed calculations, time based data analysis etc.

Suvi Salminen - Crane CPE

The trainer demonstrated a deep and knowledgeable understanding of the software and was able to simplify its complexities.

Nathan Lewis - Lincolnshire County Council

Very good course. I've been using the software constantly in the last three months and still learnt a lot.

George Martin - NHS North of England

This has been by far one of the most useful and well planned/executed training courses I have ever attended. For this to have been achieved remotely just adds to how impressive it was managed.
