GIE Training was founded by IT professionals with extensive experience spanning 15 years in software development and testing. The core management team spent their careers in software houses and enterprise organisations in various business arenas. From early on in their careers they completed training courses to learn the new tools and skills needed to develop and progress.
However, they soon realised how unprepared they were after completing this training. Those courses were focused on text books and basic examples. However, real life tends to be more complicated and rarely has text book problems to solve.
Over the years they worked with colleagues and recruited candidates who had graduated from professional IT courses and held certificates and accreditations. It became apparent that the certificates gained did not provide the core skills required to deal with the day-to-day challenges of an IT environment.
This was when they 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.
