Our Crystal Reports training courses are led by ex-industry professionals with years of hands-on experience. This means that our courses use real-life examples and scenarios and include plenty of practical tips and tricks.

We offer scheduled training at our training centre in Guildford.

We also offer custom Crystal Reports training at your offices or our centres in London and Manchester. This allows us to organise the training on a date to suit you and for the course content to be specifically tailored to your requirements.

Course Approach

Our courses are focused on making you a more knowledgable and faster user of Crystal Reports.

They are very deliberately hands-on. This ensures that you spend plenty of time actually working with Crystal Reports. We believe that real software skills can only be developed practically. Our exercises are chosen to emphasise the most important aspects of each lesson.

Crystal Reports is big software package. New uses can sometimes find it frustrating to find the function that they need. The uses of exercises ensures that our delegates leave very familiar with the software’s interface.

Uses of Crystal Reports

Crystal Reports allows you to analyse and visualise information quickly and simply, saving time and money and speeding up decision making.

It is a business intelligence (‘BI’) application which is used to produce reports from a wide range of data sources, which include, amongst others, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, Oracle and SQL databases and Business Objects. It also contains the functionality to manipulate this data with formulas and then present it either as a table, a report or a graph. Crystal Reports also contains a limited amount of GIS functionality.
