Ideas for new Wise Owl courses
We try to keep the list of the courses we offer up to date. That's why we'd love to hear your ideas for possible new courses!
Here are some possible course candidates, to provoke thought:
|Tableau||Everyone seems to be talking about this business information application. Do you use it? Would you be interested in classroom training in Tableau?|
|Other MIS programs||While on the subject, how about QlikView? Or SpotFire? Or the BI tool that you use (and in this case, which is it)?|
|R||Microsoft are investing heavily in this statistical analysis language (it's built into SQL Server 2016). Wise Owl are one of the few companies with the expertise to train in this, but should we?|
|Advanced SSIS||We already run a two-day Integration Services course, but should we offer an advance course for those who already know the basics? And if so, any thoughts on what this should cover?|
|Excel add-ins / extras||We already offer a host of Excel courses, but are we missing something? Should we be offering courses on what-if analysis, say, or advanced charts? Any ideas or suggestions are welcome!|
|Tailored VBA courses||We already offer introductory and advanced VBA courses, but is there scope for (say) a course on case studies showing how to solve specific problems using VBA, or perhaps for a VBA workshop (and if the latter, what form could this take)?|
|Microsoft Dynamics||We've never trained in CRM systems before, but perhaps we should start?|
|Programming for mobile||We already offer C# training to an advanced level, but maybe it's time to teach how to develop programs for Android, IoS and other mobile platforms?|
The best course that we should offer is probably not in the list above, but in your head! We'd love to hear from you ...
