We offer a wide range of public courses which well cover the training needs of the majority of individuals looking to learn the subjects we teach. However, there are occasions when a trainee needs to learn additional topics that are not covered on an appropriate public course, even though we might have the training material available for private courses. With such training requirements in mind, we offer "extra days" which are a private course run to cover just the extra topics that are relevant to you in addition to your regular public course.

The module list (below) is just an example of the material we can cover on "Extra Days", which are tailored individually and arrange on dates to the mutual convenience of trainer and trainee.

Attendance on appropriate public or private Well House Consultants courses that prepare you for the material to be covered.

There is a very wide range indeed of facilities available in (and associated with) Open Source languages such as Python, Perl, Tcl, and PHP and with other Open Source software such as Linux and MySQL. These are tools written by a community which fosters new innovation and code without a commercial straightjacket at development time. The subjects covered on our extra days can, then, be very wide ranging indeed with this page giving you just an introduction.

Please see our regular list of public courses. If (for example) you're new to programming but want to learn Python where our course assumes prior knowledge of another language, we can lay on an extra day to prepare you for the main course - turning a three day course into a four day "Learning to Program in Python".

Upon completion of your course, you'll have online access to the source code of all the examples from the course, and you'll have access to the "Ask the Tutor" forum where you can raise questions. We also encourage you to email the tutor, and to visit us again to use our library as appropriate.
