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.
Time Line - growth of our Open Source training


We specialise in open source language training - did you realise that we've been teaching Perl for 7 years now, and have a range of 12 different public courses?

1995 - Well House Consultants formed, to provide contract staff to provide Unix (Solaris) training for other training suppliers, and to provide internet / web services for those suppliers.

1996 - We wrote and presented our first Perl course, selling it through the catalogue of one of our customers, and running it at their training centre.

1997 - Java courses introduced, and our Perl range extended. We were now teaching very few Unix courses as all our time was spend specialising in Perl and Java, and working on web sites.

1998 - We took over the formatting and printing of our own training notes, introduced our "quick reference cards" and provided on line access to course examples for the first time.

1999 - Our office was getting cramped! We bought a Georgian lodging house on 4 floors in Melksham - "In need of some renovation" as estate agent's details might say - and started work on it!

2000 - In January, our office was transferred to Melksham, and our public courses also transferred there in the Autumn. Since we'd had the opportunity to furnish from scratch, our training centre had infrastructure needed for the type of courses we run, and was equipped appropriately. 2000 also saw the introduction of our Tcl courses.

2001 - The first edition of our "Of Course" newsletter was published at the start of the year, and we continued to improve our courses and infrastructure, with facilities such as broadband access to all trainee desktops, wireless networking, and the doubling in size of our technical library. PHP and MySQL courses were introduced in the summer, and we got planning consent to use more of the building for the business than we had envisioned at first.

2002 - We'll be looking to improve our service still further. We now accept payment in Euros as well as Sterling and USD, and we're now testing our secure server to start accepting your bookings on line. We've already updated two of our courses in the first few days of the year, and more updates will follow as we continue to track technology.

And we've held our prices. A five day public course still costs only #1090 - that's actually less than it was 2 years ago (#1215) when we had an extra level of reseller in the loop.


1st January 2003. 2002 as predicted was a year of major progress and development - course content was gently updated through the year to reflect changes in the technology and our customer facilities were further upgraded. We now have a 1 Megabit link to the Internet available to all trainees, a library of over 300 technical books .... and we retain the same high quality training and the same prices.

2004 - The library has grown to 500 books, and Python courses have been added to the schedule. The internet connection is now 3Mbit and we're busier than ever. All trainee workstations used on our public courses have been replaced as have projectors, coffee machine, etc.

2005 - Prices held AGAIN for this year. Internet connection is now 4 Megabit. Public language courses in Perl, PHP, Python, Tcl/Tk; also MySQL, Tomcat deployment and Linux (for web server admins).

Oh - and 5 day public courses STILL cost less that they did at the start of 2000 with an extra level of reseller ;-)
