We only discovered SSRS a few years ago, but we've been training and consulting on it enthusiastically ever since. If you're trying to learn Reporting Services there will be something on this page for you:
We currently run two courses in Reporting Services:
|Reporting Services||A two-day introduction to Reporting Services|
|Advanced SSRS course||A two-day follow-up course showing advanced SSRS features|
Both courses use Visual Studio 2010 as a development environment. To see what you'll learn on the courses, see our SSRS training page.
To allow you to judge the quality of our training we publish a few courseware chapters at random on our website (you can download them and view them in Word):
If you want to see more about our courseware, see our manual-writing guidelines.
We've published all of our SSRS and Report Builder exercises online (we mix and match betwen the two, as they're virtually identical), so you can judge for yourself whether our training is for you:
|SSRS exercises||53||Online training exercises in Reporting Services|
|Report Builder exercises||23||Online training exercises in Report Builder|
We usually use the Report Builder exercise set for our SSRS courses, as they're a bit more fun!
Not sure which version of Reporting Services you need to learn? Here is a history:
|What's new in Reporting Services 2012|
|What's new in Reporting Services 2008 R2|
|What's new in Reporting Services 2008|
We currently teach using SSRS 2008 R2, which is to all intents and purposes identical to SSRS 2012, but very different from SSRS 2005.
As well as providing classroom-based training in Reporting Services, we've also blogged and YouTubed (is there such a word?):
|SSRS training videos||A series of videos showing you how to accomplish different tasks in SSRS|
|Reporting Services blogs||Blogs on all sorts of Reporting Services topics!|
However, there's still no substitute for attending a real-life Wise Owl training course!
To be honest, we're itching to do more consultancy on Reporting Services! Having written some reports for a couple of clients, we realise just how quick we now are at using thsi superb software. To be proficient with SSRS, it's not enough just to know how to create reports; you need to be an SQL guru also, to get the right information in the first place, in the most efficient way. If you're staring at some reports which need writing, why not ask us to help?
Our main venues for SQL Server Reporting Services training courses are as follows:
|SSRS training in Manchester||We run regular SSRS courses at our training centre in Manchester|
|SSRS training in London||For Reporting Services training in London and the South-East|
|SSRS training in Birmingham||Details of our Birmingham city centre venue for SSRS training courses|
|Other training venues||We can offer SSRS training anywhere in the UK!|
However, we'll run training courses at your company's site anywhere in the UK (or even the world, if you live in a glamorous enough place!).
