Best Training courses providers in South Africa
The School of IT
6 reviews

IT is the fastest growing sector in the world. IT is the fastest-growing sector worldwide. South Africa’s economy has been centered on “primary”, which includes mining. It has a large labour-based workforce. These industries are now becoming increasingly automated, and South Africa is changing the way it works. Our economic and social development depends on our ability to contribute to the global digital economy. People who can transform the banking industry from paper to cloud are essential. Without cloud architects, we won’t be able to have a global banking industry. Every industry, every profession and every government department uses IT. You can’t get a degree if you don’t use computers. We need more people who see IT as central to their lives.
