"The trainer was Excellent; very clear, very good at explaining things so people understood, even those with different levels, very friendly and approachable. I chose this course on recommendations from work colleagues."

Hollie Blackburn

Volac International Ltd

"I was very impressed with the organisation e.g. pre-course check session, opening the Teams 'classroom' 30 minutes before the start time to deal with any technical issues. Teams and the remote desktop were utilised and I do not feel I would have got any more or less from the training by doing it in person (rather than remotely)."

Bethan Griffiths

Cheshire East Council

"Superb job. One of the best courses I've been on. Fantastic trainer - very knowledgeable, hugely personable and an excellent presenter. We had a lot to cover in the three days. Not once did I feel rushed, not once was the instruction anything other than clear, well explained and very well organised. Kudos too to the people who write your manuals - they are excellent - clear, concise and easy to absorb. This is my second Wise Owl course and I will sing your praises to anyone who cares to listen. What makes the difference? The human touch and the thought and care. You're dealing with a person, not an opaque and convolution online registration process. A great deal of effort has gone in to the content of the courses and their manuals and above all they're delivered by likeable, knowledgeable people who want you to learn."

Tony Smith

Newark and Sherwood District Council

"The trainer was incredibly knowledgeable and made the training an enjoyable experience. I would recommend this course and Wise Owl."

Hiten Mistry

UP Global Sourcing (UK) Ltd

"Our Tutor, was most knowledgeable about the content of the course. He was also patient and made himself available during breaks and after course hours. He was also willing to go over any topic or interest we had on the subject. All in all - He was brilliant."

Samantha Jones

The Little Greene Paint Company Ltd

"Excellent. Exercise book will help to reinforce topics covered."

Maureen Lee

North East Lincolnshire Council

"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

"We enjoyed the course and liked, how given it was two of us from the same company and team with similar pick up speed, the instructor was able to adapt teaching accordingly. I chose the training because of previous positive experience and the knowledgeable instructors."

Alka Varsani

Liberty Speciality Markets

"Really enjoyed advanced filtering. Our trainer was wonderful, very friendly and always checking our understanding. Never felt left behind/rushed - very happy with this course."

Charlotte Steele

The Office of the Director of Public Health

"I thought the course was very good and our trainer was excellent in leading us. He went at the perfect pace and allowed us to contribute but also question anything and he didn’t move on until we all were happy. I think as a group we got lots out of it to take forward and we are all looking forward to putting what we learnt into practice. I think what would be great is the potential for an intermediate course once we have found our feet with what we learnt from the beginner course. Also, the actual course literature was great too and it's nice to have something comprehensive to refer back to, to support us in implementing what we took from the course and that’s in addition to being able to keep the actual work we did on the course. "

Steve Taylor

Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust

"Training session was great, if anything I slightly found the remote sessions a bit better than when I went to Manchester for the in class training sessions. Great trainer. I have previously used Wise Owl course and they were great."

Paul Martin

Ashton Sixth Form College

"As always, an excellent service by Wise Owl from the testing of connection for remote access, quality of supporting material and the course itself."

Paul Atterbury

Marley Ltd

"Really useful and engaging session! "

Emma Mullins


"Very professional starting from the pre-course communication and pre-course materials received, to the course itself. The trainer was brilliant, nothing was too drawn out or overexplained but just enough to ensure it was understood, very methodical and professional. Thank you very much, I really enjoyed it and wouldn't hesitate to book on the next level course."

Trish Smee

Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA)

"Content was delivered at a good pace, it was also well adapted for our potential future use cases and it was very enjoyable training. The online experience was much better than I anticipated, good use of the remote desktop system."

Andy Berry

Nexperia UK Ltd

"Our trainer was brilliant and he was happy to help out with questions or queries we had. The course content was great, went at a good, fast pace and was perfect for what we needed. Feedback for other Wise Owl courses has always been good, the course fitted with what we needed and the ability to tailor it to our needs was a big bonus."

Michael Thompson

Frontline Ltd

"I thought the course was extremely well led, was delivered at a pace that reflected individual's progress and with a good amount of humour! It also reflected our bespoke requirements."

Matt Franklin


"This course worked perfectly for me. The trainer was patient, engaging and very knowledgeable. There was enough hands on material for me to feel really confident in using Power BI and DAX and I could really see the practical applications of the course content in my day-to-day role. The course documentation has proved to be invaluable reference material helping to consolidate the skills learned."

Thomas Claughton

Valuation Office Agency

"Thought the course was really interesting and can already picture ways I can use this going forward. Other colleagues in the business took the course and recommended."

Bryony Penn

URIS Group/Towergate Insurance

"The virtual course worked well and was well organised. The instructor was able to see our screens and help if we were getting stuck so no one fell behind. The manual arrived in the post in good time. I think the practicality of the course will help me remember what I have been taught."
