Meet Mark Farragher

Hi, I’m Mark Farragher and I am pleased to meet you!

I love training. I started back in 2005 and now have over 16 years of hands-on experience teaching Microsoft courseware and my own bespoke trainings.

I am a Certified Microsoft Trainer and can provide almost any training from the Microsoft official courseware catalog. I feel equally at home in a classroom setting and in an online Teams or Zoom environment. I often partner with local and international training agencies to share my extensive knowledge with a global audience.

I am very good at reducing complex subjects to clear and concise explanations that everyone in my classroom can understand. My Data Engineering and Machine Learning courses are well-known for their clarity and accessibility.

I am based in The Netherlands and can provide online, on-site and hybrid trainings in English, Dutch or German.

My Skills

THIS IS What makes me unique

I Have 25+ Years of Career Experience

I have had a very long career in IT and have worn pretty much every hat imaginable. I’ve been a software developer, database consultant, project leader, SEO marketeer, CTO, and startup founder. I can leverage my extensive knowledge from my career spanning more than two decades to deepen and enrich my teachings.

I Am a Gifted Teacher

I have a natural gift for teaching and consistently receive high review scores. I am very good at reducing complex subjects to clear and concise summaries that everyone in my classroom can understand. And my wide range of experience helps me to connect with any student in my classroom.

I Feel At Home Both Online and On-site

I started teaching online in 2015 and have built up extensive experience with Zoom and Microsoft Teams. I am equally comfortable in online and on-site trainings and can even provide a hybrid training where half of the students are on-site and half are online.
