Useful materials and USB stick to help consolidate. I was impressed with the resources on the Wise Owl website - in particular the videos are excellent."

Mary-Ann Forrest

Cotswold District Council

"I would like to say that I enjoyed the course very much and found it very informative. The trainer was incredibly professional and helped explain all the elements in the SSRS Course, ensuring that we fully understood each topic before moving on. I really liked the fact that the trainer explained multiple methods of achieving the same outcome in the use of SSRS as it helped us all to find what method was best suited for us. The course was really well structured and I didn’t feel rushed when completing the exercises, which were an added benefit as they allowed us to expand on the skills we were learning during the training. The course was beneficial to my personal development and I have already begun applying the training in my role. The supporting documents provided have also been great in helping me implement the training in practice."

Matt Hardy

Derbyshire County Council

"Everything was excellent; delivery, pace and content. Having never had any kind of coding 'experience,' I feel I can apply basics back at the workplace, with familiar data. Recommended by colleagues. The trainer somehow managed to inject fun into what is deemed by many to be quite a dry topic!"

Chris Charlton
