T.H.March & Co. Limited.

Tailored Microsoft SQL Server Training Course

The IT team at T.H. March wanted to learn more about Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and they required a tailored and condensed training course onsite at their premises to reduce the operational impact to the business.

Chartered Insurance Brokers T. H. March & Co. Limited, most notably famous for insuring the jewellery and allied trades, is also a long-established general insurance broker offering a wide range of commercial and personal insurances. Established since 1887, T. H. March is the appointed insurance broker to many leading UK trade organisations. In November 2013 the company launched T. H. March Financial Planning to offer investment and wealth management advice along with bespoke financial planning services. The company's head office is in central London, with a further five regional offices throughout the UK. The IT team is head-quartered in Yelverton, Devon at the company's National Service Centre.

The IT team at T.H.March wanted to learn more about Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and they required a tailored and condensed training course onsite at their premises to reduce the operational impact to the business.

Following discussion about their IT training delivery options and a brief training needs analysis, a Nexus Training Consultant helped the IT Team at T.H.March to customise a standard Microsoft 5 day course for Microsoft SQL Server 2008. The Microsoft training was tailored to contain only the modules that the team wanted to cover and it reduced the duration to only 2 days.

The focused syllabus and tailored course content was successfully delivered onsite at T.H.March offices. This allowed the IT team to remain in the building on call and removed additional travel costs. A qualified Microsoft SQL Server instructor from Nexus delivered the training using a pre-configured mobile training suite using laptops from Nexus. The feedback from the course was that delegates found the condensed style very helpful as the content was focused on the topics that affected their job roles.

The delivery of the bespoke Microsoft SQL Server 2008 training course for the IT team at T.H.March by Nexus resulted in several benefits including:

  • Shortened duration by defining key content from an official Microsoft course
  • Training delivered onsite to reduce time away from work and remain available on call
  • Eliminated travel costs
  • Mobile training environment and tailored courseware supplied by Nexus
  • Delegates could apply lessons immediately to their own live SQL environment
  • Nexus trainer was able to provide guidance and assistance with improvements to live systems
The training was excellent and could not have been any better received.
