"I really liked the approachability and friendliness in the communication coming up to the course. During the course the instructor quickly adjusted to the pace I was able to go at and so we had a chance to cover a lot of content with good understanding. I really feel like I not only learnt some DAX formulas but also understood the underlying context and the way the DAX language operates. The course was very insightful, demanding but fun as well. I'd recommend it to anyone. I really appreciated the ability to run the course face to face amid all other restrictions and other schools cancelling their courses. The course content was very relevant to what I needed and the course itself didn't disappoint at all."

Justyna Wolczyk


"Really good course. The trainer was brilliant! Really engaging and clear on instructions. Clearly very skilled and adapted course to suit our need & questions - changing course structure and examples as we went to suit us - really well done! Specific VBA advanced course ie not advanced excel in VBA."

Carrie-Anne Adams

"Small group works well. Very informative and great that you can work at own pace. Lunch is a lovely touch. Recommended through work colleagues. Very friendly website."

Charlotte Kershaw

Amigo Loans

"The way the trainer talked through the examples and related them to real world scenarios was excellent. He went above and beyond to help me with an issue that was causing me trouble at work and made sure I had a resolution using the stuff we learned on the course. Can I also add that on all the 3 courses the hospitality was fantastic. The fact that the trainers consult each delegate as to what they would like to do for lunch, makes it feel very inclusive and gives the feeling of being valued."

Paul Maxwell

Innogy Business Services UK Ltd

"Everyone seemed to really enjoy the course, many of us have already found what we’ve learned useful for understanding aspects of ongoing projects that were going a little over our heads. Personally I have also been completing the additional exercises provided and have been surprised how much of this has stuck so really appreciate the course material provided. Will certainly keep you guys front of mind for any additional learning we may need to book for these subjects. Thanks again, and thanks especially to the trainer for beautifully dealing with us rowdy bunch for 3 days "

"Venue was awesome - loved to get out of the house and into London for a couple of days. The trainer was really good as well, very knowledgeable and taught us in a way that will cement the work we did in our heads. Wished it had been a week long course! I want to have a good working knowledge of SQL, I will be looking into getting on other courses by yourselves most notably the excel intermediate course and SQL advanced course in the coming months."

David Bryan

Sarah Berryman

Southbank Centre

"Excellent course - well paced, great lunch & everything worked! Trainer was fantastic and would recommend or use again."

Richard Warren

Southend-on-Sea City Council

"A fantastic tutor, able to flex the course well to the needs of the group. We had a range of abilities in the room and I'd say everyone on the course learnt everything. Our head of data analytics recommended the course having worked with people in SQL for a number of years."

Marlow Upton

The Modern Milkman

"Excellent content and on a personal level, I felt very safe. Having a four month old baby, I am not taking any risks with Covid-19 and the course was the safest I have felt in a long time. We were all very well spaced out, each desk had antibacterial hand gel as well anti bac wipes and even masks and gloves. Also, being vegan, I usually struggle with the snacks provided, however the course provided excellent vegan snacks and even had oat milk available which was excellent. Face to face option made me choose the course."
