Craig Benson

"The course was fantastic from start to finish, really well designed, and our trainer gave plenty of helpful 'real world' hints and tips that you just wouldn't get from a textbook. The course administration was fabulous too, communication was timely and materials were posted well in advance. A few of my colleagues have attended the course before me and recommended it."

Kiran Purewal

The Trainer was very knowledgeable and happy to take the time to thoroughly go through and answer any questions that cropped up as we went through the course. The manual that accompanies the course is really good too and will be really useful when I embark on my first few reports. Thank you and I look forward to Power BI in a few weeks time :-)"

Ann Ekman

North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust

"Brilliant course, thank you for an enjoyable two days."

Jamie Weavers

East Coast Community Healthcare CIC

"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. It's brilliant to leave it with a collection of material I can refer to and practically use going forward. Thank you so much again. 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

"Course was great and informative."

Ian Spencer

CAS Behavioural Health / Cygnet Health

"Manual and exercise book excellent tools for practice. User friendly website, clearly defined course content and scheduling."

Mark Ingle

Ortho Solutions UK Ltd

"A fantastic trainer. He went above and beyond tailoring the course to suit me and even included examples that are not usually on the course. I really enjoyed the set up for learning online - everything was easy to navigate and the trainer could both share his screen and watch my screen to ensure I was following along. This course was chosen after positive feedback from another colleague who completed the same course."

Chloe Lewis

North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust

"We managed to complete about 4 days in 2 which is an achievement as our trainer made the course enjoyable and made you feel any question you asked was relevant. No doubt the course manual will be very useful!"

Trish Boateng

Derby and Burton Hospitals NHS FT

"Really useful course taught at a good pace for all. It was recommended to me from a colleague and I have recommended to others."

Shaun Rowark

"I would just like to reiterate what an enjoyable course it was and I feel I am really able to reap the benefits of it."

Linda Waterworth

University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay Foundation Trust

"The course was exceptional. The trainer's knowledge was shockingly good. He clearly has a very in-depth understanding. It definitely gave me an insight and confidence to develop my skills. Well done and thanks Wise Owl."

Elliot Knaggs

Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust

"I really enjoyed this course and found it very useful. Our trainer was brilliant at explaining the topic clearly and answered all questions I had, along with giving a very friendly and comfortable environment to learn. This course changed my mindset on Power BI from just another program available, to potentially a key tool I will use daily going forward. Thank you for a great experience."

Ben Smith


"I recently attended the online reporting services course and found this one to be equally useful and delivered in the same way. The structure Wise Owl has for its courses works really well."

Andrew Smith

North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust

"Excellent course, very informative and run smoothly. The trainer was interesting and engaging. Hope I end up needing some more training soon! My boss loves you guys."

Jack Tildsley

Derby and Burton Hospitals NHS FT

"(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)."

John Pelan

Shaila Hunt


"The training provided was excellent and exceeded my expectations. The pace and content of the training was ideal and has given me many new ideas to enhance what my team does that will improve the experience of our Power BI users. The approach and style of the trainer was also excellent and certainly contributed to the training. Have used WiseOwl in the past and have always found the training to be excellent."

Paul Horwood


"A very good trainer, who was good at explaining new topics and keeping us engaged; very friendly too. The main topics had been set by our company, but he was happy to go over some more esoteric things when we had time."

Jess Flint

Derby and Burton Hospitals NHS FT

"Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Our trainer, was lovely. He kept a really good pace and was very approachable and friendly (hard to get this across over Teams sometimes as well!). The content was brilliant, and left with some great ideas for how what we learnt could be used in our job. Already had completed some training with Wise Owl in the past, which was equally brilliant."

"Course content, pace and trainer were great. Really enjoyable course, all clearly explained, left feeling confident and can't wait to put into practice."

Stuart Harris

Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust

"Extremely impressed with the communication in terms of arranging the course and sorting out the IT requirements. The course itself was extremely useful and our trainer was friendly, hilarious, patient and really explained everything in as much detail as required. Can't recommend WiseOwl highly enough!"

Zak Connan

Derby and Burton Hospitals NHS FT

"Loved the remote training method, it's much quicker and more effective when the trainer can see our screens in one go without him having to wander around the real room looking over our shoulders, very slick."

Adam Taylor

The Office of the Director of Public Health

"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


"Great to have a friendly and approachable trainer, who was fantastically knowledgeable."

Jaron Inward

NHS Herts Valleys CCG

"The trainer was very well informed, keen to help and able to communicate the topics clearly & at the right pace."

Craig Murphy

Coloplast Ltd

"Great pace, great content, relaxed and informal. Fun training delivered in an interesting way. The trainer was fun, polite and very knowledgeable. I've had exposure to SQL but never had any training. Was really beneficial."

Paul Wharin

NHS North of England CSU

"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

"We had a great trainer, who explained things well and kept us all entertained. There was loads of content covered in the course, which was great. Overall, it was a great introductory overview of SQL and I enjoyed the two days!"

Alastair Pettit

Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

"The trainer was great - knowledgeable, friendly and responsive. Would definitely recommend Wise Owl; colleagues had recommended the course and I can see why."

Lacey Tudur

NHS South, Central and West CSU

"Excellent trainer, willing to go through everything, and to stay late to go into more depth with our queries. Truly went above and beyond."

Lisa Keeble


"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

"Great knowledge, great professional, friendly and helpful trainer. Thanks; highly recommend as the best training material as well as trainer."

Nicky Sabetpour

Derby and Burton Hospitals NHS FT

"Excellent trainer whose enthusiasm was infectious and helped to make what might otherwise have been dull content interesting and engaging. The content was thorough and has given me much more confidence to further develop my skills using SQL. An excellent 3-day course."

James Berehowskyj

DHU Healthcare CIC

"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."

Simon Barker

University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay Foundation Trust

"Trainer really helpful and informative. Content great - covered lots in enough detail."

Lyndsey Thiele

Department of Health

"Really liked the everything about the training; the pre course check to make sure everything is fine on the day and especially the knowledge and delivery of the course by a very friendly tutor."

Deepak Pulikkottil


"Fantastic courses with an engaging trainer. Content and pace was perfect."

Andrew Witt

Coloplast Ltd

"Trainer is very knowledgeable and is able to relate many examples to the various specific industries/organisations. Recommended by colleagues."

Matthew Norman


"Really enjoyed it and learnt many new ways to do things. Surprised how well the online training worked."

Karen Gordon

Small Steps Big Change (SSBC)

"Trainer was very approachable and willing to break the 'syllabus' flow to answer questions and still maintained completing the course work in the time allotted, without having to rush any portion. The workbook and exercises are laid out well and I will be revisiting them as a refresh."

Ian Moore

Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

"Trainer was excellent, incredibly engaging, made it very enjoyable. Covered everything needed. Overall very good course."

Sarah Kirkham-Brown

NHS South, Central and West CSU

"Enjoyed (all 3) courses very much; well paced and delivered. Friendly/approachable trainer. Help when needed but also able to puzzle my way through when I wanted. Interesting subject & look forward to using/developing it."

Amanda Gilby

Coloplast Ltd

"It was absolutely brilliant. Our trainer was extremely engaging throughout the whole course even though no one else had their cameras on! The content of the course offers a range of SQL skills applicable to a variety of situations - I can't wait to start using them! I can't stress how brilliantly the course was run; insightful and concise course notes in combination with excellent teaching, made for a very rewarding experience."

Dara Hughes

University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay Foundation Trust

"The course went very well and has given me a good insight into the SQL scripts and data extraction. The course structure was very good and covered a lot of the processes that I was unsure about. The trainer was great and made sure we were all progressing through the training sessions together, and was more than happy to explain any questions we had, or processes we did not understand. I have now been able to put into practice what I have learned from the course. "

Jaik Joseph

Derby and Burton Hospitals NHS FT

"I would like to feedback that this was the best course I have undertaken in the last 16 years since I have started working. I have undertaken many courses from a lot of different providers and this was the best. The online experience was perfect, very smooth and I have never seen a 100% hand-on course!! I would recommend your training happily to anyone. The trainer was simply out of this world!!! In addition to his professionalism, knowledge and experience, he also has some very rare qualities as a trainer. The way he guided all of us, corrected or supported someone anonymously and the flow of the training. He explained everything and remained calm with dummies every time we were stuck, even the way he was doing his jokes was phenomenal!!! We already have a list of 20 actions and improvements to do, and this is the first time I am taking back to my work practice so many improvements from a training course. Thank you very much!"

Apostolis Fakis

Derby and Burton Hospitals NHS FT

"Brilliant, great trainer. Very educational and entertaining."

Andy Cook

Central and North West London (CNWL) NHS Foundation Trust

"Really enjoyed the course. I know this course isn't normally run online but I think it worked really well and was very engaging. The exercises were great as a way of practice and being able to keep all the documents to refer to in future is really helpful. A great trainer, lovely guy and very willing to help and answer our questions."

Chloe Dyche

Derby and Burton Hospitals NHS FT

"Loved the course. Very well structured, taught me new things and reinforced the SQL knowledge I already had. Trainer was amiable and made everyone feel welcome and also patient when people struggled to grasp certain points. Course material and additional handouts are excellent."

Tom Langhorne

NHS Pension Scheme

"Very relaxed, yet informative course that covered a wide range of topics."

Ben Robinson

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust

"Really clear, well paced, enthusiastic trainer."

Richard Jones

Amplifon UK

"The course was absolutely spot on. It was delivered excellently and involved everything that was needed for a beginner to an advanced user. The remote setup worked great with no noticeable disadvantages. Great course and tutor. Keep up the good work."

Phil Memmott

Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust

"Just to say thank you to our trainer; his breadth of knowledge in SSRS, VBA and SQL helped me better understand it. Not the easiest product to use, but I now have learned some valuable techniques and tips around some of the bugs I have been encountering. "

Michael Taylor

Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust

"Fab course. Loved the food."

Claire Wilcock

NHS Midlands & Lancashire CSU

"The trainer was very helpful."

Kevin Whipps


"Very well thought out - I like how the course has been structured to build on each subsequent topic. Also I should say how useful your online videos are - they were essential for me working alone - they reminded me what a good company Wise Owl is."

Mark Davies

NIHR Academy

"Our training group all had differing SSRS experience due to being self-taught, but the course was tailored to suit our specific needs which we really appreciated. The trainer asked for subjects we would like to focus on and this really helped us get the most out of the training. I enjoyed the course and I am looking forward to putting what I learnt into practice."

Charlotte Hall

Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust

"Really enjoyed the course. Good balance of seeing and doing learning! Good material to continue consolidating the learning after the course."

Ellie Richardson


"The course was very good and the instructor knows his stuff. The atmosphere was brilliant and I'll always recommend Wise Owl to other colleagues."

Edward Blankson


"The (small) group size really helped the learning experience."

Jack Burman

NHS Pension Scheme

"Course was great. Intuitive, well constructed and patiently and expertly delivered. All questions were answered and solutions were demonstrated even though they may not have been part of the structure. I'd happily choose and recommend this course to others and as part of my own professional development, would potentially be asking for further training from Wise Owl."

Andrew Smith

North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust

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