For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
Advanced Python, Perl, PHP and Tcl training courses / classes

This item is adapted from an answer that I have just written by email - but the question / conundrum as to what to do with fractured advanced training requirements is a common one, so the answer is worth wider sharing. I believe that our solution provides an innovative way of meeting advanced requirements for tiny groups of 1 or 2, in a way that's cost effective for them, but which also makes commercial sense for us - not in terms of extra courses being profitable (which they are NOT) but in terms of customer care at a sensible expenditure of overheads

Fundamentals and some intermediate courses for most programming languages cover a pretty well defined set of topics that are common to the majority of delegates, but as things get more advanced they also get more specialised. For example, there are 4 different GUIs with Python (you could argue 5) and most people will only use one. Which is a bit of an issue with training - it doesn't make commercial sense for us to lay on a lot of advanced courses with few takers, so we use a different approach - our "Extra days". They work like this ...

Delegates who attend a regular course may also book for a day or two of extra training. Those extra days will be run at our Melksham, Wiltshire training centre on days to be agreed with the delegate(s) - typically on days that are otherwise hard to book such as a spare Monday or Friday in my diary before / after another 4 days course. And as they help fill up "off peak" days, we only charge the standard cost of a public one day course for each extra day - 350.00 for the first delegate, plus 250 for any further delegates in your group. But it IS private for your group.

Subjects taught - "you tell me". That sounds a little fluid, but about a half of our business is private courses for which we have a load of additional training material that doesn't appear in any public course and we've used a whole lot of things that we know but don't have notes on. With Python, Perl, PHP and Tcl it's almost a case of me saying "we can handle any advanced requirements". Where that expands (Python case) out to Zope, Plone, Django, etc I might be on slightly thinner ice - quite happy to cover and intro and how the language works with them, but I wouldn't offer or pretend to be able to give full courses on any of them.

There is no need for you to book extra days at the same time as you book your main course - indeed, it might well be that I cover some of the extras during the main course / can talk through things enough for you when I finish for the day - if it's just one extra module you need, there's little point in doing a whole extra day. So that's something that can - if you wish - be resolved later. But I'm equally happy if you turn round as say (for example) "I would like to cover the XXXX Gui, Web interfacing and Django and get some practical experience with displaying Database information on a web page through Python as an extra day" ahead of time.

There is general information about our extra days here (and an example for Perl here. General Python training information (as Python was used in the example above) is here
