“I was among a team of 12 participants sent by People’s Bank of Zanzibar Limited (PBZ) to undertake training in Oracle Database Administration & Oracle Security at Institute of Software Technologies (IST).“The team at IST was very supportive right from the point of enquiry, they went ahead to organize for airport pick up and drop off and assisted us in getting affordable accommodation near the institute to facilitate smooth training. The training we got from IST has helped us solve various challenges we were facing earlier at work and even improved our security know how.
I would endorse IST for similar training as they provide superior IT training exceeding client expectations”

I was part of the in house training for our ICT team on Certified Ethical Hacker course, Mobile App Development and Red Hat Linux. It was indeed an eye opener and well-structured to our organizations’ requirements.
I feel that the relationship that we have built with IST over the years has been both fruitful and supportive. Your help and knowledge has been very much appreciated over the years and may that continue long into the future between Kenyatta National Hospital and Institute of Software Technologies

“It has been very enriching to have trained for Red Hat Linux Enterprise at the Institute of Software Technologies. What really stands out about IST is the quality of service. Apart from the help getting a good hotel, the airport pick up, the Staff went ahead to arrange a one hour lunch on with the CEO, Mrs Jyoti. I personally felt at home and valued as a customer, a student and also as a person, and from that moment, I realized that at IST, it is all about the customer.
