Nigel is a great instructor! He doesn't use coding jargon and breaks down every step. His class provides the opportunity to work hands-on with SQL and practice both together as a group and independently. If you're looking for a no-fuss, straightforward class to learn SQL, this is it.
Nigel was great! very knowledgable, explained things well, and had good energy - if I had to critique anything it would be not spending enough time practicing JOINS, but understand it's difficult with the amount of time we had to work with
I took the SQL Bootcamp one day crash course and learned a lot in a day! Nigel is very sharp, well versed in the subject and great at teaching it in a precise way that makes it stick! I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to learn SQL in a short period of time.

Our instructor was funny and made new excel functions interesting and easy to learn.
Nigel was a great teacher! He explained SQL concepts well and infused humor into the class. On my part, the basics of SQL was easy to follow, but wished we had more time to practice and learn joining of tables.

I took the course with two coworkers and we were disappointed with our experience. Our instructor did not send out any instructions until 11:54 pm the night before so we had to spend time in class downloading the database. In class the day of, the instructor seemed to be rushing through the slideshow telling us he would email it to us later. We did not have enough time to complete the sample questions and he blew through the explanation of those as well again telling us he'd email it to us later. At the time it felt like we had a lot to cover so it seemed like it was justified. However at about 4 pm he told us it was time to take a 15 minute break and that we might as well just leave after and 'beat rush hour' because the homework assignment he was giving us would take at least an hour and fifteen minutes to do. My coworkers and I decided to go to nearby cafe and finish it together. We could only do six out of the eight homework problems because it turns out he did not actually teach us everything we needed to do. We emailed Nigel about it around 5:30 to ask if we were missing something and he has yet to respond. Looking back on what the course promised its clear he skipped over chunks of it in order to leave early.

Felt the class was well structured and perfect for beginners and those with basic experience like myself. Teacher (Nigel Caldon) was AMAZING! He was very real, personable, made everyone feel comfortable and taught material in a simple way that was easy to understand. Really enjoyed his class and felt I got a lot out of it. Thanks!
