"Great course. You manage to basically cover everything in a short period of time. Saves allot of time. For other students it is advised to have some level (e.g.100/200) of knowledge / experience of CRM (Online) to be able to follow everything. This has definitely helped me in understanding everything and not falling behind."

Mats Lithvall , AD Sverige AB. - Microsoft MCSA: SQL Server (9 days) (13/2/2016 to 21/2/2016)

"With no basic knowledge to know all the fundamental and then some more in four days was just amazing. This is a very high speed training and for me it was a crazy very steep learning curve as well. When training ended, i felt like a zombie... Excellent trainer who even makes the most dry sql statement into something funny helps as well."
Rune Hoff , Wonderware. - Microsoft Querying SQL Server (4 days) (13/2/2016 to 16/2/2016)

"Course was very well organized and the instructor was very knowledgeable. Accommodation and food was great, so you could focus completely on the course. Since I am an absolute beginner with SQL and have no IT background, I did find a number of topics difficult to understand due to insufficient background. Therefore, I think for this particular course the prerequisites should clearly mention that this course is intended for experienced IT professionals with a solid background. It is less suitable for persons with no IT background who have had limited or no exposure to SQL querying."
