Partner of choice
While the relationship between SKY and Auldhouse predates
Stephanie's current role, Auldhouse is definitely her technical
training partner of choice. She ranks them among the best of all
the training companies SKY uses.
"I use Auldhouse because they have the courses we need," she
says. "Technical training is potentially the most difficult to
organise, especially if it's bespoke. Auldhouse makes it really
easy, and their customer service is amazing."
Auldhouse has consistently been excellent in removing any
barriers to learning for SKY's technical staff, says Stephanie.
"They take all my requirements on board and make the training
happen," she says. "For example, when we needed Red Hat training,
there weren't enough other local candidates to fill a classroom, so
we were offered remote learning through Auldhouse Anywhere. That
was a great option for us. While our team were initially
apprehensive about accessing training remotely, it turned out to be
a pleasant surprise. Once they got set up from our end, it was
seamless. They also appreciated being able to do the training from
our offices and not having to travel to a classroom."
Stephanie finds the service and commitment she gets from
Auldhouse to be faultless.
"I have a great working relationship with Auldhouse and they
leave nothing undone. They really do meet all of my requirements on
any given project. They have even built bespoke courses especially
"Each time I think our list of prerequisites is getting tougher
and tougher, Auldhouse continues to deliver. I'm always 100% happy
to recommend them."
