"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! "
