Wonderful content and instructor. Sheila also assisted me in getting scheduled for the class.I would highly recommend!

This was the best virtual training class I have taken. Instructor kept everyone involved and could tell if anyone was struggling. It required everyone to keep up with the class as if they were in the classroom.The only thing I would say is that I didn't feel this was "Advanced" material. The concepts that were in this class should already be known if you're taking an advanced SQL class. Wish there was a more advanced class maybe more stored procedure driven?

This was the best course that I have taken online. Very organized and professionally managed.

This is the second SQL course I've taken with Serge Belich. He does a great job of explaining the database logic as well as how the topics can be applied in the real world. Serge starts with basic syntax then increases the complexity so you understand how each step impacts the end result. The course is engaging and extremely hands on. I was very pleased with the course and instructor - would definitely recommend to others!

This class was great and I feel confident that I can use most of what I have learned in my work environment! I think it would have helped if there was a short summary/review in the beginning to differentiate functions, statements, commands, etc. I still don't understand why some are blue or pink and why some need parenthesis while others don't. However, I have a feeling that with practice and reviewing the manual, I will catch on to the trend and figure this out.

The SQL Query for beginners course was great. The teacher did a wonderful job in balancing between allowing the students to work on the queries by themselves and stepping in to assist. Also great sense of humor and very willing to answer any questions along the way. Definitely would recommend Cerstaffix.

The instructor, Michelle Buchecker, was outstanding. She explained things in detail and did not make anyone feel bad when their mistakes or questions seemed odd. She made the class engaging and interesting and was very thorough in explaining everything. It was a good mix of tracing and exercises.

The instructor Serge B. was very engaging and extremely patient.

4.55 out of 5

The course was excellent and Michelle Buchecker did a great job. My only suggestion would be to make some of the examples in the power point slides more realistic and thus easier to wrap your mind around. For example, instead of having "Table 1" with "Column A", if a specific scenario was used it might make it a little easier to understand. That is a very minor critique though as the course and instructor were fantastic!

Serge was fantastic! He presented the material clearly and made the whole learning experience fun. I picked up quite a few new things that will help me with my work in the future.

Serge was by far the best instructor. For example, two so far have explained indexed and non indexed in SQL to the class, and Serge was the third. He was the first one to use a visual example *first* and then explain from there. That was the first time an instructor literally used a visual in every explanation. Highly effective. Moreover, he knows what he is teaching *and* he knows how to teach. Two very different things.

Michelle was a wonderful trainer! The course was interactive, and organized in a logical manner. Would definitely return (for more advanced training of course, since I feel like I've mastered this content). Thanks!

I really enjoyed Serge Belich as the trainer he was welcoming, friendly and allowed a lot of time for questions and learning checks. In addition, balanced the time between lecture, lab, and SQL concepts very well. I would take courses with him again.

I had not previously participated in an online class and was unsure of what to expect. This class exceeded any expectations I might have had. My location in Burlington, MA was comfortable and I appreciated the privacy of the space.Michelle Buchecker was extremely knowledgeable and had superb presentation skills. I particularly admired how she handled the lab activities and the varying ability levels of the participants.

Great 1 day class. Picked up some new information that'll help me continue to learn SQL. I would have been okay with more information presented, but the amount of content was good.

4.76 out of 5

Going into the training I was very skeptical about this type of learning environment; however, it turned out to be excellent. I liked the fact Michelle could see our work and provide guidance. I also liked that fact that she made us think about our coding rather than just lecturing or providing the answer. I also like how prompt she was in returning from breaks. There really was no wasted time.

Excellent course. Professor was excellent in regards to presentation of the material. What can typically be very dry information was presented in a fun and informative way. The book was not utilized but I will definitely reference it as I expand my roles with my company. I will most definitely look to take the Advanced SQL course down the line.
