Brent’s Live Training Classes
Brent teaches 4-day training classes in person and online:
The Senior DBA Class – You’re a SQL Server DBA who is ready to advance to the next level. 4 days, $3,995.
SQL Server Performance Tuning – You’re a developer or DBA who needs to speed up a database app. 4 days, $3,995.
Best training I've ever done. For years I'd been sent to conferences, and the way breakout sessions are scheduled, with some timeslots having overlapping sessions I'm interested in, and others having nothing I'm interested in, a lot of my time was always wasted. Not so here; it was 4.5 solid days of well-paced, on-point material.
