Introducing the ‘one’ course for today’s savvy IT Managers who seriously want to advance their career without having to plough their way through numerous time-consuming and expensive courses.

Yes, this newly updated course will give you the global recognition and certification that you can manage & lead multiple projects and teams, effectively & efficiently, in the new digital economy.

And that can open doors to extraordinary, almost limitless, career opportunities for you.
 
But just before you discover what this one course can do for your career, it is important we quickly discuss this.

With more business demands being dumped on today’s IT managers, now, more than ever, is the time to upskill your core competencies and stay highly relevant.

As you are acutely aware, the Digital Landscape is changing at light speed.

Here are just some those of unsettling changes.

  • Organisations are demanding their IT managers to deliver the IT solutions needed – and quickly
  • They are expecting you to manage multiple projects and multiple teams and, bridge the huge gap between growing business needs and IT
  • There are big budget cuts and tighter restraints to navigate – further impacted by the global recession we are entering
  • In a need to compete, more and more companies are adopting emerging technologies like AI, 5G, Blockchain, better cloud capabilities, the IoT – and expecting you to start, manage and lead these projects

These tough demands have been extended and accelerated of course, by the global pandemic. The negative influence of Covid-19 is going to be felt for many more months.

Yes, today’s IT managers’ role has changed almost beyond recognition to what it was just 12 short months ago.

If you really want to thrive in today’s digital landscape, now is the time to upskill your core competences and relevency.

For those of you savvy enough to upskill, these changing times also bring an abundance of virtually, endless opportunities.

This one course gives you those skills so you can manage, lead and influence in virtually any environment and within any organisation.

All without you having to take multiple courses.

But first let me ask you this…

Is Digital Transformation Harming Your Career Prospects?

Have you been feeling overwhelmed with new, emerging technologies (and worried about how you are going to manage them)?

Are you stressed with global budget cuts and restraints that are forcing you to be more ‘business minded’?

Do you get frustrated sifting through hundreds of articles and websites searching for reliable and vendor-neutral information and courses that will keep you relevant so you can meet today’s industry needs

If any of these thoughts have been on you mind, then you are not alone.

The vast majority of discerning IT managers around the world are feeling exactly the same, and struggling with exactly the same issues.

Hi, I am Edward van Leent, and I am the Chairman and CEO of the EPI Group of Companies.

I am here to share with you exciting news of an IT course that has been specifically designed for today’s modern managers.

At EPI, we have operated successfully for the past 33 years in the highly competitive IT and datacentre industry.

We have trained thousands of professionals, from famous Fortune 100 companies such as Microsoft, Amazon, IBM, Intel HP and many more…

We have also successfully trained thousands of other IT professionals from smaller companies who wanted the necessary skills to get ahead in their career.

We understand the tough challenges you are facing

Covid-19 is placing IT managers under even more pressure

The global pandemic is having a massive, negative impact on businesses all over the world.

There are now more enforced IT budget cuts as companies everywhere try desperately to recover from economic downturns caused by weeks of lockdown. ·         

In order to recover and get back into profits quickly, more companies will be looking to jump onto new emerging technologies.

As a modern IT manager, you will be required to understand these technologies like Blockchain, AI, data science, 5G, Cloud solutions and the IoT; and lead their implementation. 

The global lockdowns have accelerated the need for these emerging technologies and that means more pressure will be placed on the shoulders of IT managers as they are expected to manage projects and teams in multiple areas.

Fortunately, although daunting and worrying, for most IT managers this new era is not all grim-news…

Why? Because as previously mentioned, for those savvy IT managers who possess the right key skills, this new digital landscape presents extraordinary doors of opportunity… 

My obvious question to you is,

Are You Ready, Relevant & Able to Seize These New Opportunities?

You are about to discover, how this IT manager course will open the doors to these opportunities for you

It Will:

  • Fast-track your career and keep you relevant in the new digital economy
  • Transform you into a forward thinking IT manager and
  • Get you managing, leading and influencing with higher proficiency 

 

Plus, it will give you all the relevance you need and help you close the gap between IT and business needs in your organisation so you stand out.

In short, it will give you all the core competencies you need to not only meet these new demands, but to excel and advance in them.

And that could put you in demand for your skills (You could even negotiate your own terms).

Hundreds of Smart IT Managers Are Jumping on This Course...

Why? Because They:

  • Want the knowledge and skills that will put them in demand and enhance their earnings potential

Here's Another Major Reason You Will Want To Enrol On The CITM®

The IT Industry is Suffering From a Massive Shortage in Tech Talent

(That Top Companies Are Desperately Seeking)

The serious shortage of talent within our industry is probably bigger than you think.

Here are just two recent report snippets highlighting this nightmare… (even the tech giants are struggling to get talent).

From The Expert Panel @ Forbes Technology Council:

“The 2nd biggest challenge facing IT right now is finding great talent and retaining it. Why? Because competition is fierce, other major companies offer bigger pay and offer better incentives to skilled professionals to jump ship…

Auditing firm KPMG, surveyed over 3,000 technology leaders for their annual CIO survey and that revealed a shocking 66% of them were suffering major hiring problems.

(This is up an astonishing 9% on the previous year and is at its highest ever).

The CITM® gives you the skills, the knowledge and core competences that these top companies are urgently seeking!
