“We view these awards as further testimony of our dedication to excellence and our constant efforts to enhance the services we offer to our clients.

As an approved Oracle Education Reseller, Torque IT is able to resell training, within different classes to provide digital learning media, and enable digital live virtual classes to allow learners to choose and map out how they want to do class. Oracle has a vast product offering, with over 6 000 product courses within its offering, Torque IT provides training on some of Oracle’s core technologies including databases systems, Solaris operating systems and Java programming systems.
According to Timms, “In today’s technology landscape, there is a requirement for mastery across multiple vendors products and solutions. This is especially true in Africa where one has to almost be a jack of all trades, unlike in Europe and the US where there is traditionally more scope to specialise.
“Where modern technology is concerned, product and solution evolution takes place at a rapid rate and it is critical for organizations to continue to invest in the enablement and certification of their IT teams. This is to ensure that they are skilled, empowered and able to seamlessly implement, support, maintain and troubleshoot the systems that now form the backbone of virtually every company today.”
“Torque IT is pleased with the progress that we have made, in partnership with our customers, and these awards validate that we are committed to, and evolve with, our customers technology skills requirements. We are committed to providing clients and students with the top quality, and relevant, training solutions that they demand in order for them to run effective and efficient businesses,” said Timms.
