Ever since I gave my first professional training in SQL Server in 2002, I have been passionate about training, knowledge sharing, open discussions and collective learning with interested participants.

From 2005 to 2014, I was MCT (Microsoft Certified Trainer)* and held, among others, the official MOC courses (“Microsoft Official Curriculum”). However, I increasingly adopted a different approach, using my own additions and techniques beyond the “click directions” and contents of the official course material that was oftentimes short of practical relevance.

Since 2003, I have been focusing on my very own training series: the SQL Server Master-Classes. (Also see my blog article here: )

Meanwhile, these Master-Classes take place between 1 to 3 times a year. That is due to the intensive preparation, motivated by a high quality standard that does not stop with the contents (motto: “From practice for practice”): the learning environment (i.e. food and location), too, is important to me.

You can find current announcements on the official web page:

I will also be happy to come up with customized contents to suit your wishes and needs, and carry out trainings inhouse.

Do not hesitate to contact me. I will gladly support you in achieving your goals.

* To attain MCT status, I passed a specifically designed exam in the framework of a didactic training at a Microsoft-approved institute. There may be much more “comfortable” ways to attain the MCT, but one of my basic principles is to learn as much as possible rather than “only as much as necessary to achieve some kind of certification.”
