For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.
Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!
I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Visa, MasterCard and American Express - changing payment profiles
Well House Consultants opened for business in 1995. And in the early days, payment for courses was almost exclusively made by cheque. My goodness - how things have changed! We added Visa and MasterCard in December 2000, and in June 2008 (and, I will admit reluctantly) American Express.
Payment by cheque has faded, to be largely replaced by BACS transfers, and the use of credit and debit cards has grown. MasterCard, American Express and Visa each represents a significant part of our business now. Each of the credit card companies has differences in its schemes, and as merchants some of these differences used to have a big effect on which we preferred. But I'm delighted to report that this imbalance of features and charges has now shrunk and balanced out, and we truly welcome payment on any of these cards.
You'll note little mention of cash. Yes, of course people who drop in to Well House Manor for a cup of coffee at £1.50 (open every day!) will typically pay by cash, and occasionally people will pay cash for Hotel Rooms
too - but it's very rare indeed for a training course
to be paid for with cash - I'm not saying it hasn't happened, but the few occasions are memorable ones. (written 2012-02-01, updated 2012-02-04)
