What other people have said

Many thanks to those listed below for kindly agreeing to let us use their names. All of the reviews are from the last 3 calendar years (although some may be for classroom courses):

"The trainer was really helpful and was watching our every move on the remote sessions to make sure we were OK and not lagging behind. Top bloke, really nice, really good experience. Thank you so much! "

Adam Ratcliff (Whitemeadow Furniture Ltd)

"Trainer was very engaging. Content was well thought out and relative. Good to keep the material to look at afterwards."

Ian Wilson (NHS Pension Scheme)

"I found the course really useful and easy to follow. It was ideal for someone who knew very little about SQL previously."

Andrew Moss (Cheshire East Council)

"(SSIS) Enjoyed the training; examples clear and concise; thanks to the trainer for helping investigate particular issues that we had, in his own time, on top of the training. (SSRS) Very useful to be able to tailor the course to our requirements. Many thanks to the trainer for responding so quickly to our questions which went quite a long way off topic."

Lucy Gooda (The Cambridge Building Society)

"Trainers have extensive knowledge in their subjects and are very thorough, will definitely be booking the advanced SSIS with WiseOwl. "

How our live online training courses work

We've published a full summary of what it's like to attend a Wise Owl course online - here are the main things you need to know.

What you'll need

You'll need three things for the course:

  1. A computer (obviously) running Windows.
  2. A good internet connection.
  3. A microphone and (ideally) webcam.

In addition you'll find the course very difficult without an additional monitor (so that you can participate in the course on one screen, and use the software you're learning on the other).

What will happen when you book a place

Within a few hours of your booking a place on one of our online courses, we'll be in touch to get you set up correctly.  This usually takes about half an hour, and can be done at any mutually convenient date/time.

A few days before your course begins you'll receive a parcel in the post (free for UK bookings) containing:

  • A full colour courseware manual;
  • An exercise booklet to go with the course; and
  • A USB stick containing the files for the course, should you need a back-up.

Your parcel will even include a Wise Owl Sheaffer biro (they're good; trust us) and pad.

What you won't need

You won't need to install any software at all on your computer.  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; and
  • we use Teams for our online training, which you can run through most modern browsers.
On and after the course

On the day of the course itself you will be able to join the course up to half an hour before it begins. This will give you time to:

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

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