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.
Graham Ellis - Summary of Training Record

It's surprisingly rare that I'm asked for my own training record ... and that's probably no bad thing, as it's only a part of what I have learned over the years. It's a vital part, but the additional practical experience, and hours and days of less formal study, add together to make a more complete picture.

However, here's a partial report listing the formal bits (and some less formal ones) of where I learned some of what I know.

2010 - Level 2 - Food Safety in Catering

1969 - O Levels - French, Additional Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Woodwork
1968 - O Level - Maths

I could add so much - a session at the BBC, and another in a Church Hall in Holborn by Perl Gurus (Perl 6, Advanced Perl). "Train the trainer" sessions at a place of work. Twice yearly training days / conferences on matters relating to rail campaigning. And to add further, our library of books where I'm an avid browser, and on-line browsing too. There's further information on my background [here].




Illustration: The niche courses which I need to attend in order to be able to then teach at the next level are very rarely within daily communting distance of home. I have travelled to Canada, to Alaska, Californis, Florida and Colorado, to Italy, Greece and Turkey - and closer to home to London too - for elements of my own training.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
