Why Choose Us?

Sample customer feedback

Our thanks to everyone who agreed to share their thoughts (note that some of these reviews may be for our online courses).

"The delivery of this course was great. The interaction with the trainer was good and the ability for him to assist when I became lost, ensured that my focus on the topics was maintained. Looking forward to the next course."

Nikki Cutler (Neutrik (UK) Ltd)

"Great course, really enjoyed it."

Hashim Salim (Zuhlke Engineering Limited)

"The course was very well run. Almost as good as the classroom experience! I'd previously done a SSRS course with Wise Owl and found it to be of a very high standard, with a very personable and knowledgeable trainer. It seemed like the obvious choice."

Louise Gorry (Gamma Telecom Ltd)

"I thought this was a really good course and would definitely recommend. It helped that there were only three of us and I felt I could ask questions at any point. The course content was good and covered Power BI really well. The trainer was also really nice and gave us the opportunity to talk to him, before or after the course if we needed a hand with anything."

Banita Mistry (Valuation Office Agency)

"The content of the course was great and was supported by an extensive manual which I am grateful for. The course is really well organised and I loved that the trainees were applying live what they were learning using the remote desktop. I also loved that the trainer could see on his screen what we were doing and give us live feedback. I have seen how Devon County Council has used Power BI to share their traffic collision data in a visual way, and we would like to achieve something similar in Plymouth. The course is one step forward towards it."
