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:

"Thoroughly enjoyed the course. A great teacher who didn't overcomplicate anything which I was a bit surprised by, as when you think of anything related to coding you'd assume it requires a lot of brain power which can be a bit overwhelming, but that wasn't the case at all. Would love to come back for another course. Thanks!"

Syed Hasnain (Sucden Financial Limited)

"Really liked our trainer who was a great explainer - keep it up!"

Benedict Summers (PricewaterhouseCoopers)

"Excellent trainer and pace of days. He made you feel relaxed and explained the course content in a easy to understand manner."

Becky Hayes (APSE Manchester)

"It was a great introductory course at a good pace. I had no prior SQL knowledge and found it really useful. It's good that we could copy over the exercises at the end of the course to enable us to practice in our own time. Our trainer was very friendly and approachable"

Cheryl Walker (APSE Manchester)

"A great trainer, always keeping people engaged. So knowledgeable and great at explaining in a way that everyone could relate to."

Suzanne Foody (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.
