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:

"Thanks for a very useful 2-day course. I think it worked very well remotely and we didn't run into any problems during the 2 days. The trainer was very knowledgeable on SSAS and provided us with some good examples and help when we needed it on the exercises."

James Rapkin (Southend-on-Sea City Council)

"This course was very useful and helpful for the work that we will be undertaking at the council in the future. Our trainer was very knowledgeable, very helpful and delivered the course at a very good pace. He was able to answer any questions I had and was able to advise on how we are using the system for our performance data. Will definitely be doing another course with you in the future. I have previously done the Introduction to SQL course, so wanted to expand my knowledge further and learn how I could implement all the different techniques into our own system. I will be exploring the Power BI courses once we are in a position to do so."

Scott Lea (City of Lincoln Council)

"Totally brilliant course, the tutor was fabulous. Would certainly recommend :-)"

Wendy Wood (Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA))

"The course was really good. Well-timed and organised and wasn't too slow or fast for a new user to pick up on. I'd done a bit of self-training online but wanted a course where I could interact with and pose questions to a trainer and have a bit more insight into a SQL database."

Andrew Griffiths (Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC))

"Lovely and enthusiastic trainer who remained upbeat and engaging throughout."

Louisa Martin (Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC))

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.
