Clarita Stemarthe

"Absolutely brilliant. Great content. The trainer is very knowledgeable and friendly. He knew the ins and outs of SSIS and was able to show the product to great effect in a very short period of time. The facilities are modern and with the seemingly unlimited amount of tea available, I was certainly kept refreshed! I will continue to use Wise Owl for my CPD needs! "

Paul Newton

Lincolnshire County Council

"I would like to say that I enjoyed the course very much and found it very informative. The trainer was incredibly professional and helped explain all the elements in the SSRS Course, ensuring that we fully understood each topic before moving on. I really liked the fact that the trainer explained multiple methods of achieving the same outcome in the use of SSRS as it helped us all to find what method was best suited for us. The course was really well structured and I didn’t feel rushed when completing the exercises, which were an added benefit as they allowed us to expand on the skills we were learning during the training. The course was beneficial to my personal development and I have already begun applying the training in my role. The supporting documents provided have also been great in helping me implement the training in practice."

Matt Hardy
