Course Reviews

Was a good few days of training. Came here with not much knowledge on Linux but am now leaving with a solid understanding that I can take back and apply to my job. The trainer was a good teacher and the course itself was taught at a nice pace.

Rory - Practice Associate


Second course now at Stayahead, both have impressed me with the quality and professionalism of the training. We covered a lot of material, yet it did not feel rushed. The instructor was very helpful and friendly and was happy to answer any (many) additional questions relating to the course and its material.

Leo - Finance


The instructor explained the course content very well, with enthusiasm and embellished the training with his extensive knowledge of Unix/Linux. He was engaging and progressed the course at an appropriate pace, taking the time to answer questions.
