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.
Is it Python past cheetah already?

When my son was young, we had a clock with animals rather than numbers around the dial at each hour, and we used to refer to times like tiger past zebra, rather than twenty past twelve. In retrospect, and in a more enlightened age, this must have been needlessly confusing - the telling of times as "animal past animal" or "animal to animal" is still something that we joke about, which goes to show just how much these things stick. It's bad enough having to teach that "4" is "twenty past" and "7" is "twenty five too", without having the beasts of the jungle coming into it.

Not my image - so I'll provide a link to similar clocks that are for sale at Hawaiian Days - and to be fair, thes clocks are very much better as they show pretty illustrations to attract one to read the clock, rather than replacing each number by an animal!
