Christopher Holt (Woodland Trust)

"The Introduction to SQL course was really good, it covered all the basics and there was a wide range of examples shown by the trainer, as well as exercises from the Exercise booklet. The trainer was very knowledgeable in the subject and answered questions throughout the course on topics not covered on the course itself. On the Advanced SQL I really like how everything is explained and the trainer checking how everyone is getting on with exercises."

Zhang-Lei Rushton (Whitespace Work Software Ltd)

"Great introduction to SQL. The trainer paced it just right and explained things very well and patiently. The training manual and exercises were very helpful."
