Technical Training by us, for you

Informal, Practical and Enjoyable. Oh, and Educational.

We believe that sometimes it's better to learn about a subject from someone who applies their knowledge on a regular basis, rather than someone who specialises in teaching others. Especially for technical subject matters.

Don't get us wrong - traditional training has it's place and can be highly valuable - but for many areas of technology, it's not necessarily going to produce the results you're after. For example, when we deliver a course, we are often better placed to answer questions on the spot, as we've invested a lot of time executing projects using the solution in question.

Everyone learns differently and if you have any questions, concerns or special requirements, we'd be delighted to talk to you about them.
