iQuest University

 

Every story of becoming starts with a journey. And every individual setting out on this journey is in the “driver seat” for a path with many challenges and opportunities. Career development is no different. But the journey is always more pleasant with the right people on board to tag along and guide through.

What is iQuest University?

  • iQuest University is the framework that helps you put your talent in motion by assuring a collaborative, creative and a learning-by-doing environment that unlocks your potential.
  • Our trainers are professional peers who are passionate about sharing their knowledge and experience, while making sure that having fun is always on their training agenda.

What can you find here?

  1. Technical Skills Programs:
  • Through iQuest University, we’ve been growing talented IT professionals since 1998.
  • We have internal experienced trainers and mentors who will share knowledge and help you discover and build your capabilities.
  1. Soft Skills Training Sessions:
  • While your technical skills may get your foot in the door, your people skills are what open most of the doors to come. In a given situation with 2 people having similar technical skills, the difference in performance is that of “soft or social skills” development.

All our technical programs include soft skills training elements as well. We do this not by having a predefined curriculum, but by putting in place a custom session, based on your actual needs.

Who can join?

iQuest University is available for all talented IT students (either with a formal or non-formal IT background), passionate to start-up their career by joining us. For each program you will find what qualifications you need to meet in order to participate.
