What to expect

This program is designed to equip you with the relevant skills and knowledge to build a successful career as a Technical Analyst. You may cover different technologies, such as the most widely used Unix and Python, as well as agile working methodologies, including ITIL. Our agile framework training is beneficial for helping you adapt to any working environment and operate in cross-functional teams for large organisations.

You will have the opportunity to really delve deep into understanding the purpose of a piece of code and how to identify whether a fix is needed in order for the code to function as expected. Building on this foundational understanding, you will then gain the skills required to develop an application, such as an ecommerce website or trading app.
