We are passionate about the products and the quality of training we deliver

About us

At Shortest Path Training we understand that different organisations and individuals have very different training needs. We offer a range of open courses taught at regular intervals, or we can provide unique, bespoke courses based upon specific functionality and data sets; and reflecting the students’ current software knowledge. Our standard courses offer excellent value for money, and our bespoke courses utilise the standard course materials as a starting point to keep the customisation costs down.

We pride ourselves on our ability to work with students who have varying levels of skill and our ability to make people feel comfortable. We provide an environment which encourages questions, discussion, and “giving it a go”. Our trainers’ practical experience allows them to help students relate the materials covered to their own working environment.

When IBM release new i2 software we update the relevant courses to ensure our customers are getting the best possible service. There is always a short delay between the very latest release and the updates to our courses. We are currently training Analyst’s Notebook Version 9 and iBase Version 9. If you would like more information about exactly which versions will be used on a specific course then please call or contact us.
