"(Intro Power BI course) Excellent pace for 2 days. Plenty of interaction and humour. Great lunch breaks. (DAX course) Excellent course. Very well delivered on a "tricky" topic which could have sent me slightly mad. Great pace of delivery. This is the first time I felt I could do the same course again! (Advanced Power BI course) Excellent delivery of a new course. Quick measures were very useful after the DAX course (a good compliment)."

"This is the best SQL course I've ever been on. The pace of the course was perfect, the trainer was very patient and knowledgeable.

This course was researched and recommended by a colleague in my team. I'm glad he picked this, as it was very, very good."

Michael Kellagher

Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust

"The subject (MS SQL) could be, or even should be, a very dry and dull one. At all points the trainer managed to keep the course and the subject light and engaging. Given he had to put up with the students (myself included) often being on mute (for this online course) that must have taken considerable effort. A job very well done."

"This course was really interesting. One of the plus sides for me was that I was the only one on the course so the trainer adapted the course to suit my needs, and he helped me with a problem that I have been having. I'm glad I did choose to do this course and think I will be signing up for the DAX course to complete my knowledge."

Jennie Styles


"Really enjoyed the course. I know this course isn't normally run online but I think it worked really well and was very engaging.

A great trainer, lovely guy and very willing to help and answer our questions."
