Data Analyst and Qlik Development Specialist @ awari
G’Day and Welcome,

When I get reviews like this one “oh my goodness. I cracked an Interview using this course” then I know my Qlik course material is hitting the spot and delivering career solutions for my students …


October 2021 News: Just released – Full content update for the “Certificate in Qlik Sense Analytics Development” , complete make over , new and revised content along with refined quizzes and code challenges.


As well as my normal consulting work in business and government I teach here on Udemy, there are 3 very distinct technology specialisations I work within and these are QlikView, Qlik Sense and SQL Server for delivering Data Analytics and Visualisations. In my downtime I go out and fly as a private pilot (that’s my passion too) .

In addition 2 of my Qlik courses are offered on Udemy For Business (UFB) .

QlikView and QlikSense

Professionally I have been delivering QlikView  solutions to business and government users for the past 9 years and Qlik Sense since it first released in 2014. Qlik delivers these products to the market and is an industry leader in the BI and Analytics world with more than 50,000 organisations using Qlik products.

SQL Server

I have been delivering data analytics with the SQL Server (Tech Stack) for more than 18 years as this technology (in my humble opinion) is the best Relational Database and Data Warehouse (Mart) product on the market and will continue to be well into the future.


Because of my passion and experience working with these technologies in the real-world you can be assured that you will be getting first class training from my courses here on Udemy.

I am looking forward to sharing my ongoing experience and passion for data analytics with you. 

Looking forward to seeing you in one of my courses soon.

Stay safe and well , looking forward to you joining in the courses.

Kind Regards
