"Found all the course useful. Was concerned that the mixture of experience was going to either hold some back or leave others head scratching. I am and pleased to say neither happened."

"Next to no experience of SQL queries before this course so I found it all useful. The most useful things for me were learning how to generate and display queries in a neat and understandable format (means I can now unpick my departmental queries more easily!)."

"Having had very little exposure to SQL, the content is perfect for all entry levels. It's also great that after the course the material can be worked on to gain further knowledge and experience of SQL."

Senior Staff Equipment Engineer
International Rectifier Corporation

"All of the course was useful, although I have worked with SQL a lot I was always told that there's a certain way for things to be done, but never knew why. I am leaving the course with a full understanding around the reasoning of certain actions."

Operations Analyst
Vanquis Bank

"Excellent. The course content was pitched exactly where it should have been to take account of people who had used SQL before and people who hadn't."

Finance and Operations Director
Hays Travel

"Met needs perfectly - a good grounding in SQL and the tools to take away to refresh myself if need be. The material to take away is ideal."
