"Very thorough and detailed. USB to save our work is very useful, rather than just taking a manual away. Great lunch and friendly trainer."

Rebecca Dyer-Grant

Department for Education

"Great course! Everything is explained really well, makes you know why you are doing what you are doing."

Mitalee Pisavadia

"Completely changed my understanding of working with data."

Deepak Thakur

"I really enjoyed this course. I've done a number of courses over the years (not Wise Owl Training and not PBI), but this was head and shoulders above the others. It might be that I was interested in learning about the topic, but the whole experience was seamless. The pre-course IT check was an important detail (I did a course the previous week with another provider and this beset with IT issues upon starting). Using the remote desktop meant I had easy access to the data and the trainer could see when I did something wrong. The trainer was also very good. I'd actually be happy to do another online course again (even after Covid) - I didn't feel like I lost anything by doing it this way. It was booked for me - but I'm glad the person who booked it, chose Wise Owl."

"Really enjoyed the course. Super useful and applicable to my new role. Will definitely consider Wise Owl for future training. "

Ben Burak

"Info was delivered well in an easy to understand way. Going through info as we went and writing the queries with explanations was helpful. Relating it to how we will work with our data was also very useful. A very good course!"

Lucas Crowe

Home Office

"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

"Possibly the most useful training course I've attended in 20 years! Looking forward to putting the learning into practice and I feel confident doing so with the training materials and annotated pbix files that have been provided. Great stuff."

Jon Nagl

"It ran really smoothly. A great trainer - very thorough, goes at a good pace and is able to answer questions well. Course materials are also great."

Zoe Anastasiou

"Excellent course, both content and delivery. Very impressed with trainer's knowledge and use of practical examples, as well as his willingness to explore useful areas outside the normal course syllabus."

Jack Looman

"Excellent training, well paced and engaging delivery of the training."

Andy Dowling

Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman

"Chose the course as a colleague had been recommended Wise Owl, the content also looked like it suited my needs as a complete beginner to SQL. Really useful intro to SQL. I had previous experience but feel we've covered a lot of info in a clear & understandable way."

Sophie Scanlon

Public Health England

"I very much enjoyed this course and learned a lot – it was a very intellectually stimulating experience! We had an excellent trainer who offered valuable advice as a consultant. Particularly, in the face of the challenges of coming into a new environment and facing unknown systems. Thank you very much for your professionalism, expertise, and prompt responses. It has been a pleasure working with you."

Carraig Dillon

Department for Education

"The Trainer was great. The pace was quick enough to keep you focused but not so quick that we got lost. He was very good at talking us through any problems we encountered."

Morgan McGreevy

Valuation Office Agency

"The trainer was brilliant, really knew the subject well and I loved the flow of the course. I had used PBI in the past without any formal training, now feel I can go back into PBI and do things correctly. Documenting work is always an issue and was provided with some really good tips when developing PBI reports. Great course."

Ranjit Rai

Valuation Office Agency

"The course was brilliant! Covered a lot of DAX which was the area of Power BI I struggled with most."

Becca Laidlow

Valuation Office Agency

"Thoroughly (& surprisingly!) enjoyed this course. Thanks!"

Wendi Slater

"Our trainer was absolutely fantastic! He explained very well the contents of the course and was very helpful."

Matteo Paravelli

Home Office

"I thought this was a really good course and would definitely recommend. It helped that there were only three of us and I felt I could ask questions at any point. The course content was good and covered Power BI really well. The trainer was also really nice and gave us the opportunity to talk to him, before or after the course if we needed a hand with anything."

Banita Mistry

Valuation Office Agency

"The most useful training course I have been on."

Andrew Jordan

"Pace, content etc spot on."

Gareth Clubb

Crown Commercial Service

"I thought this course was really great, really comprehensive and easy to follow. Having the course materials sent out is also really helpful for work after the course. The trainer was amazing! He was so personable and patient and it must be so hard to to teach not in a standard classroom environment, but he did a wonderful job and left a really great lasting impression."

Bev Power-Wealls

Valuation Office Agency

"All very useful & being able to take everything away to review on my own will be very useful. Other people in the team have done the course before and recommended."

"Overall a very enjoyable, very informative and easy to follow course with a good link between the training and exercises. The pack sent out was excellent and couldn't speak highly enough of our trainer who was always on hand at the end of session/break and lunch to run through any additional questions."
