What other people have said

Our thanks to everyone who agreed to share their thoughts. All of the following reviews are from the last 3 calendar years:

"A great trainer who really knew his stuff."

Gary Roberts (MPM Products)

"I really enjoyed the course. Thank you for all the additional information and the videos you have available. I almost chose the beginner course but after a great chat with one of your trainers, I think I correctly chose the advanced course. I've also had great feedback from other employees at my company who have also taken a course with Wise Owl. Great staff at every point through the journey."

Kyle Anabossi (Hoist Finance)

"An excellent trainer who provided engaging instruction and examples. He was able to gauge the experience of attendees in the room and tailor explanations for certain aspects of the course, so they would relate to what we might already know in other programs. Keep up the good work!"

James Berehowskyj (DHU Healthcare CIC)

"I had a great time, thank you so much for a fab course!"

Holly Tyers (Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC))

"A really good trainer and appreciated him talking through stuff, even when we went off on a tangent."

Matthew Barnes (Signature Senior Lifestyle Ltd)

How our training courses work

Below are some notes on how Wise Owl courses work, to help you decide whether they're for you or not.

What you'll need

If you book on a classroom course, the only thing you need to bring to the course is ... yourself! We even provide a notepad and a suprisingly nice pen for you to take notes with.

For online training you'll need two things:

  1. A good internet connection (otherwise you'll have a frustrating time); and
  2. A second screen (a requirement, not a nice-to-have!)

You can see full details of our online course requirements here.

When you book a place

If you book a place on one of our courses:

  • For classroom courses we will send out a joining email. That's it!
  • For online courses we will get in touch to organise a half-hour pre-course check to iron out any connection problems before the course (rather than during it).

Whatever type of course you book, we will also send you out a reminder a few days before the course is due to take place - not that (we hope) you'll have forgotten!

What you won't need

For classroom training, you won't need a computer - we (obviously) will provide that. However, you're welcome to use your own laptop if you prefer, providing that you have the correct software installed.

For online training you will need a computer, but you won't need to have any software installed.  This is because you'll use Windows Remote Desktop to connect to our computers, and these will have all of the necessary files and software installed.

The start of the course

For online courses you will be able to join up to half an hour before the course begins. This will give you time to:

  • familiarise yourself with the set-up;
  • meet your trainer; and
  • get to know the other delegates!

For classroom training it's always nice if people arrive a bit early too, to give people time to meet each other (and drink coffee).

You'll be given a full colour courseware manual, an exercise booklet to go with the course and a USB stick for taking course files away (we'll post all this to you for online courses).

After the course

After the course finishes you'll receive a digital certificate proving your attendance (we will gladly send a paper copy on request also).

We don't have any formal arrangement for answering questions after the course, but if you get stuck on something and email your trainer they should (and nearly always do!) respond as quickly as their training schedule allows.
