GIE Training was founded in 2008 by IT professionals with extensive experience spanning over 20 years in IT. The core management team spent their careers in software houses and enterprise organisations in various business areas, including training, project management, software development, testing, and quality assurance. We founded GIE Training to try and make training better, helping beginners and professionals gain confidence and knowledge in the subjects that we teach, and look beyond the certification exam. We have recently expanded our training and consulting offering into the realm of project management methodologies, bringing our own expertise in partnership with leading training bodies in the UK. Early on in our careers, we took training courses to learn the new tools and skills that were needed to develop and progress professionally. We soon realised how unprepared we were after IT training, passing an exam and getting official certifications. Those courses were focused on textbooks and basic examples. However, real-life tends to be more complicated and rarely presents you with textbook challenges to overcome. Over the years, working in the IT industry in various managerial or technical roles, we met colleagues and recruited staff who had taken professional IT courses and held certificates and accreditation. It often became apparent to us that the certificates they gained did not provide the core skills required to deal with the day-to-day challenges of a modern fast-paced working environment. This was when we realised there is an inherent problem with the way IT courses are taught and decided to make a change and help IT professionals improve their skills and be better prepared for those tough challenges. That is why all of our courses emphasise practical implementation on top of preparing you for the exam.
