Private SQL Server Training

Your team has been reading my blog, watching my free public streams, and using the First Responder Kit scripts for years. They’ve gone as far as they can go on their own, learning from Google, and now they’re ready for the next level.

I can bring the conference to you – except way better than a conference, because all of the sessions are specifically relevant to you.

Step 1: choose topics from my training catalog so you can figure out how many days of training you want. My remote training rate is $5,000/day, and that includes VMs for up to 5 students. For onsite rates, contact me.

Step 2: contact me and include the topic spreadsheet with your choices.

Step 3: I’ll send over a contract with my next available dates.

Let’s do this! I’m excited to help take your team’s skills forward.

Logistics Details

The signed contract and 50% deposit payment locks down my dates. We’re agreeing on a specific set of training and dates. I’m typically booked several weeks in advance, and my travel is coordinated months in advance. I have to make sure I’m in front of a computer with high speed internet on the dates of our engagement. Planning all this out means we just need to be all locked in and paid-for. You can pay the 50% deposit via credit card or wire – there’s a payment form built into the contract. You can also pay via check, but just be aware that your dates aren’t locked in until I receive payment, and I book first come, first serve.

Class times are usually 9AM-5PM. I’m based out of Las Vegas, but I’m an early bird: I can teach in any time zone from US Pacific to UTC. (UTC-8 to UTC.) If your company is in a positive time zone offset (like UTC+2), I can even make that work if you’re scheduling 4 or more consecutive days of training.

The classes will not be recorded. If you’re interested in buying recordings for your team’s library, send me the topic spreadsheet with the list of modules you’d like to purchase, and the number of logins you’d need. The training is priced per person.

The classes are usually held on my streaming platform. I use streaming video because it’s got the best single-screen experience: my own camera is overlaid on top of the material like a weatherman standing in front of a map, so I can gesture at stuff onscreen. I can also use your conference platform, but just be aware that the video & audio may not be as good as my public classes.
