Some skills are best imparted through informal mediums (e.g., on-the-job training and informal mentoring), whereas other skills, like IT specialization courses, need more formal training channels (e.g., classroom training and guided self-study) to be effectively and efficiently conveyed. The appropriate combination of training methodologies is identified with the client before the course commences. We also conduct onsite training at the convenience of client.

At INSTITUTE OF SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGIES (IST), the learning environment is dynamic – by always keeping student objectives in mind, we deliver training using the very latest equipment, and maintain small class sizes to assure adequate individual attention.

And however good our trainers and facilities are, we know it’s impossible to learn well on an empty stomach.  So, not only do we provide snacks and refreshments throughout the day, but a hearty lunch too!

In total, we have 20 state of the art labs and the capacity to accommodate up to 200 participants at a time.   However, our class sizes are limited to 15 people per class to allow for sufficient instructor to participant attention.
