Our mission is to aid you & your staff to take advantage of new & existing technologies & become more productive in your everyday work.
We offer a broad range of courses relating to operations, programming & technical support.
Each class consists of presentation & hands-on exercises that help to reinforce the concepts.
All class presentations & workshop materials are developed based on our methodology of instruction by example.


We can provide customised courses for companies. Furthermore our instructor's knowledge is not limited to what's in the book; this allows a flexible approach with instructors answering related questions outside the course content.
We offer bespoke courses at clients sites; this is usually the most popular & cheaper option.
We also advise one-to-one training tailored to individuals & offered at a time & place to suit you. This offers great value.
We have IBM i training solutions tailored for individuals, businesses & enterprise.
