On Site courses
Resources from the web site of Well House Consultants on the subject of On Site courses. We provide open source training course
and business hotel accommodation
in Melksham, Wiltshire, England
We'll run private courses at your offices
wherever they are in the UK and Ireland. If
you're located elsewhere in the EU, we can
also run a longer course at your office (it's
not worth us travelling for 1 or 2 days). You
don't pay for the tutor's travel time - just
travel expenses based on a formula that's built
in to our web site quotation system ... and we
bring a workstation for each trainee to use, notes,
projector, books, .... you just provide a room
and the students and we'll be set up and running
within ah hour of arriving on the first morning.

|4739||A year of changes for Lisa and Graham Ellis, and Well House|
Our IT training business has been running at Well House Manor (48 Spa Road) since 2006, and during that time has grown in all sorts of unexpected directions - into a guest house, an event venue for outside customers, a museum, and a base for the local Community Rail Partnership. With changing metrics ...
|4602||Training course and hotel room prices - 2016|
Happy New Year - for 2016!
Each New Year, we review our prices and products - they do need to be checked / updated from time to time, and this is the time of year when we have fewest outstanding quotations in people's systems.
The good news for 2016 is that prices are unchanged from 2015.
Our public ...
|4230||Well House Consultants - course prices for 2014|
Great news - we are holding almost all of our IT training course prices at the same level into 2014. Public courses at our Well House Manor training centre in Melksham, Wiltshire, will remain at £350.00 for the first day, and then £250.00 for each subsequent day of the course. Private courses ...
|4132||Using your own laptop on our courses - now even easier!|
Ten years ago, we always provided equipment for delegates to use during courses. Delegates had their own desktop systems at work for the most part, and moving those into a training room was impractical. But times have changes, and more often than not these days - for programming courses such as Python ...
|3950||10 reasons why I travel the night before a course starts|
I have a London meeting at 09:30, and traveling up by train it should be routine, straightforward, worry-free. I would love to have got a bus to the station at - say - 06:50, catch the 07:20 train, change at Swindon and be in London at 08:50 and then catch the tube - 09:15 arrival just a few minutes ...
|3898||The course must go on - improvements to tutor travel plans, with immediate effect|
The roads get busier ... and a journey of 50 miles that the AA route planner estimated at 80 minutes took me 110 this morning.
At current traffic levels, perhaps a bypass is needed for the Chippenham bypass?
As I drove towards Corston, in the middle of the countryside the traffic dropped ...
|3715||Changing face - Filton|
When I moved to the South West of England, in 1980, it was to look after the supply of computer graphics products to major customers in the Bristol area, Yeovil, and further west. Half a lifetime later, so much has changed; this evening, I walked past a site which I visited from time to time those 30 ...
|3691||Back in Cambridge to give a Lua course|
Another wet Bank Holiday is over ... and at least I can be thankful that my drive up to Cambridge was quiet if somewhat wet - Tuesday morning start to a private Lua course. I'm back at the Hamilton Lodge - friendly faces of the staff as I've stayed here so many times before; it almost feels like my ...
|3137||Training Classes - should the training company provide a system for each delegate to use? |
Background. We provide training courses in IT subjects - we specialize in "Open Source" programming languages such as Python, Lua, Perl and PHP, but also offer some associated topics such as SQL, and some Linux including administration training for server configuration and deployment. All of our courses ...
|3131||Lua, Tcl, Python; Worldwide training classes|
The subjects we teach are used worldwide - there's just as much requirement to learn about Python in Salerno as there is in Swindon, about Tcl in Milwaukee as there is in Manchester, and about Lua in Buffalo as there is in Birmingham. But subjects like Lua are "niche", and the training volume simply ...
|1600||Cambidge - Tcl, Expect and Perl courses|
By an amazing co-incidence, I'm in Cambridge this week ... running two 2.5 day Tcl and Expect courses, then back just across the road next week running two 2 day Perl introduction courses of the bootcamp style.
As ever, there's not there's not too much time to sight-see (that is NOT what my clients ...
|2956||On site course - travel and accommodation expenses|
Should we charge our customers when we go on site for our journey to them, and the costs of staying over if need be? In common with our industry's standard, we do charge; when you think about it, that's sensible - otherwise our local customers would be subsidizing people who are based a long way away. ...
|2928||Public (scheduled) or private course? Book direct, or through a third party?|
For most of the courses we give, we group up delegates from different companies - perhaps one or two in the pharmaceutical industry from Essex, a financial modeler from London, a seismological researcher from Saudi Arabia, a civil servant from Leeds and a web site designer from Wavertree, and we run ...
|2309||Lua training class in Spanish|
"Can't wait to hear how you're getting on". "Keeping an eye on your blog". A couple of messages from folks wondering how I'm getting on with my Lua course in Guadalajara, Mexico, this week.
The answer will be brief. I'm enjoying the course, the delegates are getting a lot from it (THAT is the ...
|2810||A course review - for the tutor to complete|
A Course is for the delegates .... but it's really nice if the tutor gets a little out of it too. And usually I do!
I run private courses at Company's offices on a regular basis - about 30% of my teaching time is on the road. I always ask my delegates to complete course evaluation forms as they provide ...
|2801||Binary data handling with unpack in Perl|
During today's Perl course, I was asked to provide an example of the unpack function for extracting multiple values from a piece of data - typically binary data extracted from a file into a scalar variable.

|2311||Floor to ceiling|
From floor to ceiling, this is a new training room this week. And from floor to ceiling, it is eventful. Heavy overnight Mexican rain had seeped into the building, leaving a centimetre of standing water at the slightly lower end of the room where my tutor's area / projection wall is located (I thought ...
|2041||httpd, Tomcat and PHP course enhancements|
If you're in an area of the UK that's covered by 3G phone service, we can now have our training computers on line during private courses on your site without having to add our machines inside your firewall. You just provide 'the room and the students' and we do the rest.
We have always provided an ...
The slight young girl, perhaps aged about 17, was dressed in army fatigues. She waved her automatic rifle at me and ordered me to move away from my car. I did as ordered, without any hesitation. An hour or so later, I was in a prison building ...
I'm never quite sure what I'm going to find when I ...
|139||Just provide a room and the students|
I'm sitting, writing, in our training room and there are 9 laptops on the desks ready for the final day of Perl for Larger Projects. That's one laptop per trainee, some spares, a laptop off which we project course notes, and the system I'm writing from. Operating systems? A mixture of Unix, Linux ...

What's this list got in common (apart from all being countries?)
They're all countries that I've visited to give training coures over the past few years - five or six of them just this year ...
|1027||Cue the music, I'm happy.|
I'm not musical ... but this song keeps jigging around in my head.
"I'm back in the saddle again.
Out where a friend is a friend,
where the longhorn cattle feed
on the lowly gypsum weed.
Back in the saddle again."
First course of the New Year ... done, run and I love it!
Lining up the systems to ...
"You can't bring that in here". My greeting this morning in Glasgow as I wheeled my trolley of laptops into the builing I'm training in. OK - so where should I take them? It's very rare to get turned away or have other difficulties getting to my customers, but when it does happen I just smile and think ...
